Authentic Leadership


Unmask the leader Within 

How do you lead in a world where everything you’ve learned might change overnight?


After a global pandemic, major supply chain disruptions and geopolitical tensions, we know that we cannot rely on a leadership playbook any longer. Copying leaders who have been successful in the past doesn’t provide the confidence that we can be successful today and tomorrow.


Amongst all this change, there is one thing that doesn’t change: Our fundamental values and beliefs. Fortunately, we all have a powerful compass to lead through the roughest waters: our core, personal values and beliefs. The principles we stand for. 

At MetaMind, we know that we become the best leaders when we have a highly developed self-awareness and recognise not only our weaknesses and strength, but also what we stand for. Self-awareness allows us to live consistently according to a set of values and principles and build trust as a leader and inspire your teams to weather any storm.


That’s why our training programmes start with You in mind. We create great leaders by building on You.



Discover how you can lead through choppy waters with high self-awareness and your personal, core values and principles. Contact us today!

What will you learn

Based on MetaMind’s founder Mette Johansson’s upcoming book, we tailor leadership programmes on authenticity and authentic leadership. In fact, many of our programmes are rooted in authenticity and authentic leadership, because we know that authenticity is one of the best tools in your leadership toolbox.

In today's world, where the rules change overnight, we cannot lead by the playbook. We need a different set of principles. 

Our personal, core values. 

When we define our own leadership principles, whether based on "care", "empowerment", "professionalism" or others, we have a compass that will guide us to take the right decisions regardless of the storm and choppy waters in which we find ourselves time upon time again. When we live our authentic values, we will inspire others with similar value systems to follow us on our mission. 


When senior leaders lead based on their core values, as well as the corporate ones, they set the tone for everyone in the organisation to dare to live with personal integrity and intention. Organisations become inclusive, and the right basis is set for innovation. 

And we know that this is good for the bottom line. 


Our Authentic Leadership offering typically takes the form of one of the following: 

  • 1-1 coaching to bring out the authentic leader in you 

  • Workshops covering all 7 steps to become an Authentic Leader tailored to your needs

  • The kickoff day in corporate leadership programmes. The Authentic Leader typically precedes other elements such as leading self, leading others, leading organisations, leading for results.

  • A keynote talk by Mette Johansson to inspire your leadership teams

  • Be a powerful public speaker - whilst retaining your authenticity

Testimonials for Programmes:

Audrey ANG

Head, Finance, China, CapitaL

and Investment

Thanks for today’s session! I really find the sessions useful. Makes me constantly reflect, which is not a thing that

I do enough.

Compliments to Mette and Anu for being so engaging! Both of you really walk the talk. I want to encourage male and female colleagues to take this course.

Stella Limothy

Head of Digital / Regional Digital Officer

The program has strengthened me further as a woman in senior leadership – it gives a safe environment to practice negotiation, pitch and dream even bigger. It’s a great session, where collective intelligence and constructive feedback from other women leaders are flowing freely, creating a very nourishing 1.5 hour every week to the mental well-being. Highly recommend to join the program!

Hind Kamal

Market Manager GCC & Other Middle East Countries at Barilla

I would like to thank you deeply about this amazing journey that we had together. This training came in the perfect time for me and changed completely my perspective of so many topics. It is  training that every woman should have in her life.

Jolene Botha

Order and Logistics Specialist, Xylem Water Solutions Middle East Region FZCO

This course has changed my life. My approach to all things in life from work to personal has changed for the better.

Lane Tok

GE Healthcare ASEAN, Healthcare Project Management Leader

This is not just another motivation/training course.

The content and delivery is superb, thanks to the experience/exposure of Mette & KG.

They are amazing. 

What really stands out is that this course coaches us to “go deeper” to understand why and what, enabling us to learn from the basics. I attended a similar course before, but the class size was just too big and too diverse to get the same kind of impact I have had from the 12 classes of this course. The ladies are from different backgrounds and yet we are similar in our beliefs/needs and we build immense trust amongst the team to share and gain key takeaways each time we come together. Every Friday is a day we motivate, we learn and we grow. This is an awesome

learning experience.

Nayla Hage

MET Aftermarket Growth Leader

I am grateful to have been part of the Woman in Leadership Accelerator Programme this year. 

Quite honestly, I was not sure what to expect from this program and soon realized the positive impact that it had on my personal and professional growth.

The sessions were a safe space for women professionals to speak up openly, to address any blocks in the workplace and to grow as we deserve to without the attached stigma that we, as women, tend to put on ourselves.

The passion on the topics discussed on a weekly basis by Mette and Anupama were so encouraging, the interaction and support among the team were absolutely beautiful and the awareness was with great impact.

Thank you,

Ann Jameson

Sr. Director, Asia Deal Desk  


I have had the privilege to collaborate with Mette on multiple occasions including a session with my entire team on owning your personal brand, women on my team experiencing Mette’s ‘Women in Leadership’, and finally men on my team participating in the ‘Male Allies’ workshop. I have also participated as a guest panellist for the Women in Leadership workshop. Mette’s workshops have positive impact because they are presented in a relaxed manner, they provide real and identifiable scenarios, and are very applicable to the business world today. I also love that Mette brings people together with varying background and from different companies. This helps participants broaden their perspectives and learn from others across industries. I look forward to continuing my collaboration with Mette and the MetaMind workshops in the future.
