Dare to develop everyone*

*Yes, everyone - not just management!

Join us in exploring the art and science of turning your workplace into a human growth arena where we will ask ourselves questions such as... 

  • What is adult development and why should we care? 
  • Can a culture of growth benefit the business?
  • What role can organizations take in the changing world of tomorrow?

We welcome you to a day where we explore human development together with world famous researchers and visionary CEOs and HR-executives including Robert Kegan (Harvard), Susanne Cook -Greuter, Katarina Berg (Spotify), Tomas Björkman (Ekskäret) and many more.

    The Ekskäret Foundation

    The Ekskäret Foundation has a 100-year vision of a more conscious and sustainable world where humans create greater well-being, for themselves, for others and for the whole planet. The vision has manifested as we have gained a greater understanding about ourselves, our environment, society as a whole as well as the man-made systems that we all work in today. Our roll as a societal actor is therefore to offer arenas and programs where people and ideas can meet, grow and develop together. In this format, we can create a society that can flourish in all possible ways - humanly, economically and planetary. 

    The Center for Social Sustainability

    Many people want to contribute to creating a better world. But how to contribute in the most effective and long-lasting way is sometimes unclear. At the Centre for Social Sustainability we are leading the way through our scientific research and study. The Center for Social Sustainability is a new interdisciplinary and international center with carrying out research projects on social sustainability while producing exciting, creative, relevant and concrete research. 


    SelfLeaders is a cutting-edge culture & leadership agency who believes in a world where everyone is a leader. We are committed to democratizing growth beyond the reach of top management: we inspire leaders to dare to develop everyone and turn their culture into a strategic asset. With one foot in business strategy and another in motivational psychology, the SelfLeaders experience initiates a powerful and sustainable culture transformation. Only then can business be a true engine for solving complex human problems of our world.
