Leadership development

We work with leadership development at all levels. The efforts are developed in close collaboration with the customer and often run over time. Homework, pre-studies and learning groups are used to trigger lasting behavioral change. Theories and models are based on the latest leadership research with the goal of getting individuals and groups to reflect, challenge themselves and develop.

”If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more you are a leader”

Management team development

When working with management teams, clarity, trust and transparency are crucial for the team to develop. Moving from operational to strategic focus, finding ways for effective communication, collaboration, decision-making and clarifying roles are of great importance for a management team’s progress. Measurements and self-assessments clarify where the team is in its development. The efforts are interactive, strengthen the result and a proactive working climate.

Team development

We work with both conflict groups and high-performing teams and let relationships and psychological safety serve as a foundation for the results of the team. The focus is on how the group can create profitability and quality, work creatively, across borders and not get stuck in silos but instead act as a team.

Organizational development

We follow organizations closely, often for several years. Leadership, teamwork, communication and possible conflicts are mapped through in-depth interviews. The affected groups are then facilitated, trained or coached. In order to meet the needs of the organization, we also assist with Train the trainer arrangements, feedback and advice.

”The real leaders are the ones who encourage others, empathize and demonstrate compassion. Only such leaders have the ability to influence and maximize the potential of their people and organizations”

Coaching and manager support

Coaching and managerial support are offered for longer or shorter interventions. The coaching focuses on proactivity and behavioral change. Homework and articles are given for the best possible development.


We moderate leadership forums as well as conferences and smaller groups. The pre- and post-work is done thoroughly and in close collaboration to create inspiration and relevance.



Coaching leadership

Coaching leadership is often heard of, but does not mean it is effective in all situations. In this lecture you get tools, approaches and techniques for coaching leadership. You will gain an increased understanding of when and how coaching can be used and in which situations it is less suitable. Live coaching is mixed with practice, theories and models to create courage and willingness to use coaching, regardless of your role.

In the courses, you learn about and practice coaching leadership. You gain knowledge of what coaching is, why it is effective and in which situations it is most useful. We work interactively with questioning techniques, active listening, presence and structure. Reflection and discussion build a development contract and the exercises take place in a safe learning environment. Participants are encouraged to build networks for continued exchange of experience.


The complex working life puts high demands on leaders and employees who work with their own development and who can lead themselves. What does it mean to lead oneself and how can we act proactively in a constantly changing environment? Self-leadership assumes that there are reasonable conditions, but how is that created? In this lecture, you will be inspired to develop your self-leadership, in order to consciously cope with and contribute to the changeability and challenges of working life.

Brain smart leadership

How can we find flow in a working life that is often hectic and limitless? Sustainable leadership is about the balance between personal and professional activities and recovery that doesn’t just happen once a year on vacation. In this lecture, you will learn how to create a leadership that benefits both yourself and your employees’ well-being, results and performance. A leadership that works with, not against, the mechanisms of the brain.


Giving and receiving feedback can be experienced as uncomfortable and unfamiliar. Yet research shows that performance and well-being increase significantly in groups that have a vibrant feedback culture. In this lecture you will learn more about what feedback is and what effects it creates. You gain in-depth knowledge of success factors and pitfalls in developing and reinforcing feedback and how you can contribute to an active feedback culture.


Many people spend a big part of their working time in draining and ineffective meetings. Alexandra has extensive experience in designing and facilitating conferences as well as meetings for her own team of leadership developers. The lectures and trainings in facilitation integrate theory and methods with practical exercises. Alexandra also speaks at a program for specialist psychologists with the aim of creating effective and engaging meetings.


From working group to team

Building well-functioning teams is about strengthening the relationships between team members and getting them involved in the common mission. With the right conditions and knowledge, a work group has the opportunity to get out of silos, role confusion and conflict. In this lecture, you will learn about the building blocks that create high-performing teams and relationships that are characterized by trust and psychological safety. Leaders and groups in high-performing teams create quality and work creatively across borders with true collaboration.

Cognitive flexibility

When was the last time you changed a habit or routine? Humans are creatures of habit, but depending on what we do our neurons are strengthened and regenerated for life. There is always something we can improve or change in our work and personal life. By learning more about cognitive flexibility, you gain insight in how the brain works and how you can adapt to change and a working life characterized by complexity. The lecture is based on research and practical applications on how you can use, train and strengthen the muscles that contribute to cognitive flexibility.

“Having worked alongside Alexandra and seen the impact she makes from a distance it’s a pure pleasure to work with her as a vendor. She is profound and credible in everything she does but does not get stuck in theory and models, but knows how and why things need to move fast and has an agile and speedy, uncomplicated way of working that fits the purposes. She is adaptive and receptive to feedback and easy to partner with. She listens well and on top of that she is a really really good facilitator.

She has a simple and choice-free, but at the same time effective, communication style and pushes us in the right direction. I can warmly recommend Alexandra to anyone looking for help in developing their management team”
