See Available Dates

This course has been created by the Swedish Defense University and is based on their established and well-researched leadership model.

It is aimed at you who are a manager, leader, or have another role and want to create a work environment that brings out the best in both yourself and your colleagues.


The purpose of the training is to improve your own leadership by learning about The Leadership Model from the Swedish Defense University and to increase your ability to lead and collaborate with others.

You will have the opportunity to learn more about yourself and your leadership, reflect and get useful tools to help you, your colleagues, and your organization to develop.

One of the two trainers in this course is Carl Starendal, who is certified by the Swedish Defense University and also an Agile expert & SAFe Fellow. This means that in this course you can get extra support and advice on how to link Developmental Leadership to leading Agile teams, tribes/trains, and organizations.

  • The training is conducted in-house at a hotel over three days, with evenings also used
  • Ten weeks after the training, a full day is held for feedback and deeper reflection
  • The course is held with between 9 and 20 participants
  • Before the training, the people you lead will assess your leadership skills. With the help of the course, you will create a plan for your future leadership. You can choose 6-10 people to do the assessment, which is done online.


Anyone involved in a leadership role, including managers and leaders at all levels, can participate in the training and there is no requirement that you have a formal personnel responsibility to participate.

The course does not require any “strangership,” meaning you can attend with others you work with in your own organization.

The course Developmental Leadership (UL) is based on the Swedish Defense University’s research-based Leadership Model, which in turn is based on the worldwide and established research on “Transformational Leadership.”

UL has shown a positive impact on an organization’s results and creates strong conditions for employees to take responsibility and create their own, internal motivation linked to work. It is also considered the leadership model that best fits the next generation of employees.

Developmental Leadership is characterized by the leader acting as a role model and addressing moral and ethical issues, and acting based on a visible and understandable value base.
