Our Program

Our leadership program is a collective learning journey with the purpose of better understanding ourselves, our relation to others and the inner workings of the complex systems we live in. Over the course of the program we meet for 3-8 gatherings, which are highly participatory, practical, and will enable us to make the changes we believe to be most important.

Module overview

"Know Thyself" - Ancient Greek aphorism

The program focuses on three main modules:

  1. Self

  2. Relations

  3. Systems.

Each of the modules represents where we direct attention, and they will always have in common a focus on identifying strategies for creating a positive impact. To reach our goal, we first need to focus inwards to understand ourselves and our minds better. Only through understanding ourselves, can we create a foundation to build relationships with others. Combining the understanding of ourselves and our ability to foster healthy relationships and networks around us, we can easier find our direction and create the impact we desire.

The skills and habits of mind, connected to the individual modules are translated into actionable tasks. These tasks can be trained and applied in-between the gatherings and thus contextualised in the demands of your real-life setting. Future leaders enabling these tasks will extend their impact outside of the program, to recognise that we are setting the mindset and foundation for personal leadership development, rather than give a one-and-done program creating a leader.

SELF // Building your own foundation // We direct our attention inwards to become aware of and work with our own behavior, thoughts, feelings and mental models. We work to accept our starting point, and to develop better personal strategies for leading ourselves.

RELATIONS // You in relation to others // We direct our attention towards relational processes to be able to form healthier relationships, more effective collaborations, and to lead others. Sensing the relational field to better understand what is happening between people and how to solve complex problems in collaboration with others.

SYSTEMS // Navigating the world / your company // We direct our attention towards the terrain, the systems, context and society that we are a part of. We work to better understand the workings of complex systems and to be better equipped to influence them towards a desired direction.

Leadership is something we learn by doing

Our approach to leadership education is highly participatory and practical. This means that during the program, participants have the chance to step up, practice leadership skills, and have impact on how we do things in Future Leaders.


We have designed the program to focus on developing abilities that are adapted to each individuals personal needs, relations and context. We do not believe that we can know or define what each participant needs to learn or develop. We believe in facilitating a learning space where they have the environment needed to challenge their own assumptions/beliefs/biases, widen their perspective and learn how to take advantage of the science of learning to change their own behavior.

There are three main abilities we aim to aid participants in developing. Resulting in three main learning outcomes:


Learning Outcome

1. Self-Mastery: We believe an effective leader today is a lifelong learner who is able to influence their own thoughts, feelings, will and behavior.

Self processes The ability to influence oneself (thoughts, feelings, will, behaviour); to cope with everyday life, performance, growth, and moral maturation.

2. Relational Mastery: We believe an effective leader today is able to form healthy relations and collaborations.

Relational processes The ability to foster and build healthy relations and collaborations in community and organisational life; you in relation to others.

3. Systems: We believe an effective leader today is able to solve enormously systemic and complex problems.

Contextual processes The ability to understand context, develop and solve problems, at various scales and levels of complexity; understanding old systems and how to make better ones.
