2106 - UGL in English

UGL is the most renowned leadership training program in Scandinavia, established in 1981 by the Swedish Armed Forces.

In the UGL program, participants will through their own experience learn about group dynamics and understand their own roles in a working group environment. The course is centered around feedback, understanding conflict, values, group development and different leadership styles.

UGL deals with how a group develops and matures, what happens in the group during the course of development and what promotes or hinders positive development. This is what is known as group dynamics. The course also deals with the opportunities and problems of leadership in relation to development of the group’s maturity.

The overall aim of the course is to make participants more effective as leaders and/or as members of a working group. Through experienced based learning and reflections, a greater understanding is reached for how group development is affected by leadership and behaviors, needs, or emotions of group members.

The course venue is Näsby Slott, a calm and comfortable conference facility 15 km north of Stockholm, 25 minutes by taxi from Stockholm/Arlanda airport.

Welcome to a course that develops you as a person and a leader!

Programme

Working methods and content

The pedagogical approach of the UGL course is based on “Experiential Learning”, which means that UGL allows the participants themselves to experience situations that reflect group dynamics and to understand their own roles in this group environment.

The course format is an intense five-day residential course (Monday-Friday). UGL starts Mondays at 10.30 a.m. and ends Fridays at 3.00 p.m. UGL is a demanding course and we assume that all participants are in psychological balance and willing to put in the efforts that the course requires.

The number of participants is limited to 12, with two facilitators.
