What are the 5 Core principles of successful leadership?

18 February 2016 – Leadership Workshop

American Chamber of Commerce Sweden – Mentor Program

This is an exclusive Workshop by nordicvibe for members of the American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden – Mentor program.


What is this workshop about?

Taking the Leadership roles has been one of my most rewarding parts of my career. It has also been the most challenging part – daunting even. Over the years I have learnt from my own experiences but also collected advice from inspirational leaders who I have had close contact with. I have boiled these down into the absolute most key principles that guide me – Core principles. When in a tough situation or dealing with a new challenge these pointers have helped me to lead successfully. Acting like a compass or guide.

The purpose of my workshop will be to share my Core principles with you and inspire you to start your own list. A list that will guide you through your Leadership journey. A journey I highly recommend that you take!

I am really looking forward to joining the American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden mentor program to discuss this exciting topic.
