Swedish Winter Challenge + Masterclass: 13-20 January + 21-24 January for those who has participated on the SWC or the Facilitative Leadership Training (FLD) before.

We are happy to provide an extension of the Swedish Winter Challenge (SWC) 2019, to those of you who have attended the SWC before. During the previous SWCs, we have identified a need to dig deeper into some areas: family business development and succession planning, reflective leadership and creating what we call “Better world companies”. 
We offer a three days program, after the Swedish Winter Challenge. You are also welcome to participate in the Facilitative Leadership Development program and the business program organized during the SWC (12-20 January, see separate program), without any extra cost other than that for accommodation, meals and some logistics. The three days masterclass program is presented below. The purpose of the three-days program is to provide a wider thinking regarding sustainable and generational businesses, tools for business development and a hands-on experience of business model generation with a potential of business opportunity. 

Registration open now.  Click on the document below for details.
