MetaMind: Partnering with you to develop  authentic, inclusive and inspirational leaders through corporate training

At MetaMind, we partner with you to develop leaders who are ready to lead in today's ever-changing world through our exceptional corporate training services. Leaders, who we want to follow. The leaders, we all deserve to have. And the leaders, we all deserve to be. 

With a team of in-house and associate trainers, our expertise can be summed up as “the people side of leadership skills”.


We go far beyond delivering “off-the-shelf” training. We tailor learning journeys that are specific to your company's and individual needs. This often includes an assessment of your current culture, and a clear definition of where you would like to go. We look at your systems and processes, as well as the skillset and mindset that you need to succeed. 


When designing and delivering leadership development and corporate training programmes, we provide an optimal environment for your leaders to further grow. We will choose the right format for different objectives, whether it is coaching, mentoring, workshops, or online learning. We make learning relevant, interactive, fun, and inspirational, and add elements of accountability to ensure all activities translate into change of behaviour. 


The results of our work includes more efficient people leadership, an inspirational corporate culture, as well as an increase in employee engagement.. We develop leaders with followers, who are inspired to work toward a common objective and make a difference. 


We have trainers who coach, facilitate and train seasoned C-suite leaders as well as first-time managers.

Don't just take our word for it... 

We're proud to have won a number of awards for our work, both for our general leadership programmes, as well as our diversity and inclusion work. 

What can we do for you today? 

We tailor all our solutions based on your specific needs. As a result, we do not have a brochure outlining our entire offering. We are happy to provide you with a tailored proposal based on an in-depth discussion with you. 


After a needs assessment that includes data gathering, interviews and analysis, we develop programmes that are specifically designed for your needs.

  • Delivering modules within a corporate leadership programme

  • Is Authentic Leadership effective?
    In today’s workplace, we increasingly want leaders who are “real”. Countless leaders, in politics and business alike, have disappointed us because they’ve misled or even deceived us. We’ve always yearned for trusting relationships, and we’ve felt let down so often. Our belief in authoritarian leadership has been on the decline for decades, and it is an incomprehensible concept to many Millennials. In addition, we all have a growing dissatisfaction with polished, faceless leadership – we want to know our leaders. This is a reason why personal branding and top management branding are on the rise: it helps you to know yourself, and then understand how to portray who you authentically are. Authentic leadership is an approach that emphasises building a leader’s legitimacy through honest relationships with followers that are built on an ethical foundation. Authentic leaders value the input of their followers, and they are generally positive, self-aware people who promote openness. Excerpted from Mette Johansson’s book, How to Make Yourself Promotable.

  • What are the seven components of authentic leadership?
    “Know thyself”; Emotional Intelligence; integrity and fairness; and being able to focus on the main issue.
  • Why is Diversity and Inclusion important?
    Mette Johansson is a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion. To hear her full thoughts on the matter, the links below direct to interview recordings of her on the topic:
  • What is the difference between diversity and inclusion, and equity?"
    Diversity is the umbrella term that covers all of the traits and characteristics which make people different from one another. It includes differences in background, sexual orientation, skin colour and ethnicity, ability, gender, education and much more. Vernā Myers distinguished between Diversity and Inclusion by saying: “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance.” Inclusion is about the behaviour or way of treating others in an accepting or welcoming manner. Many D&I experts have gone on to focus on ensuring that everyone, regardless of background, feels respected and heard in the workplace. That everyone can speak their minds freely, and feel a true sense of belonging. Equity and equality are distinct terms. Equality is based on providing everyone with the same rights. However, look at the attached picture? Is providing these two people the same opportunities at work truly fair? Equity is providing everyone what they need to succeed.
  • Why do we need cultural intelligence?
    The business world is growing more diverse. Which is good for the bottom line – and even more so when employees have a good dose of cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence means: Strong curiosity of others and differences in wants, needs, and behaviour In-depth knowledge of how cultures differ Excellent observation skills on the impact of culture on relationship and business processes A superior ability to adapt to different ways of doing things, and finally; Defining successful strategies to navigate cultures.
  • How can cultural intelligence be improved?
    Whether you work in or with a regional office, headquarters, or with virtual teams, MetaMind Training’s workshop will help you to truly appreciate cultural differences. Individuals will learn to effectively navigate cultures, read and adapt to different cultures, as well as develop strategies for effective cross-cultural communication, including high-level negotiations. For teams, it means higher acceptance of differences, less friction, smoother collaboration, and, through the inclusion of novel ideas, an increased level of innovation.
  • Why is effective leadership important?
    Ineffective leadership has many disadvantages, ranging from low engagement and thus low performance rates, to high staff turnover, and even higher burnout rate among staff. In addition, effective leadership is about treating others human beings with due respect, and is therefore the right thing to do. MetaMind Training’s founder, Mette Johansson, has written two blogs that emphasise the importance of effective leadership: What’s the true cost of poor management in your company?

  • What is the Harrison Assessment?
    According to Harrison Assessments’ website, “the Harrison assessments focuses on providing the most accurate and effective assessments in the industry by dedicating a large portion of its resources to research, development and user-friendly software engineering.”
  • What are the advantages of the Harrison Assessment?
    We have chosen Harrison Assessments as our preferred psychometric testing tool because we don’t see a correlation between personality trait and performance. For instance, why measure whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, as many tests do? Intuitively, we think that introverts are not good at people skills, and think that salespeople must be extroverts. However, research tells us that the best salespeople tend to be introverts – so why do we still use personality traits when we wish to raise performance? The Harrison Assessment looks at your work preferences. It is based on the theory that we tend to do a task more frequently when we enjoy doing it, and thus become better at it. Our preferences are good indicators of how we tend to behave at any point of time. Similarly, it looks at what you value at work, and at MetaMind, we know that we get energised when we do what we truly value. Finally, the Harrison Assessment knows that a behaviour trait is not necessarily good or bad, and there are two sides that need to be balanced. For instance, being ‘frank’ may be an asset; but only when balanced with the right dose of ‘diplomacy’. The same is true for a total of 12 ‘paradox traits’, including analysing pitfalls versus taking risk and being assertive versus being helpful. Balancing these traits that may seem at odds with each other, but in effect are synergistic, provides deep insight into how you can optimise how you show up at work.
  • How does the Harrison Assessment work?
    We will provide you a survey link, which takes about 20 minutes to complete. After this assessment, we will provide a thorough debrief and jointly discuss a personal development plan. You will typically choose one area of improvement, which can, for example, form the basis of an ongoing, individual leadership transformation coaching programme.
