What we offer
Words words words. There are so many words when it comes to leadership.
Although they are meaningful and well-intentioned, words alone don´t create any change.
But when a leader stands out as a role model, things start to happen.
In Leadership Lighthouse we create role models. We help leaders to be aware of the part of their leadership we call Leadership Presence - the communicative leadership.
We focus on five parameters. Trust, Responsibility, Authority, Presence and Courage.
The leaders who succeed in integrating these 5 parameters in their leadership have up to 20% more high performers among their employees. That is a strong business case.
We believe that everyone deserves an authentic leader who can focus and excite.

Our method to help leaders and others to get their messages across in an authentic and compelling way. We are not trying to turn anyone into someone else.

The better you know yourself - your reaction patterns, your habits, your strengths - the greater are your chances of succeeding in your leadership.
And how do you get to know yourself?
A bit simplified the formula can look like this: Time + suitable framework + sufficient disturbance. The suitable framework can be eg. Gl. Brydegaard on Funen, the small island,Egholm, in Limfjorden or Schur Conference Center by Horsens Fjord.

Our five parameters
A leader´s success can be measured by how well his employees are performing. The leaders, who succeed, are often very aware of the 5 parameters we call Leadership Presence.
This is where it all starts. Trust is about meeting other people with an open mind. When people´s work is based on trust, they can be open and curious and share their ideas freely. In that state creative solutions are invented.
In Leadership Lighthouse we strengthen the leader´s awareness of how he communicates with confidence. Through this he builds the strongest foundation for cooperation, confidence and team spirit.
When the leader takes full responsibility he also obtains all the power that lies in knowing that he is ready to do everything it takes to reach his goals. Leadership Presence and responsibility go hand in hand.
Because responsibility strengthens the ability for both leaders and employees to effectively achieve their goals, at the same time as they boost motivation and job satisfaction.
It requires great discipline and self-awareness to master responsibility. In Leadership Lighthouse we train leaders and employees to become proficient in noticing when they disclaim responsibility and to think proactively and responsibly.
There are many stereotypes about authority, so therefore we often say "A natural authority " when we work with this core competence in Leadership Presence.
Being an authority - in the value-creating way - is about clarity in leadership. Here, the leaders justify why it makes sense to spend so many hours working at exactly this place of work. A way to do that is through telling credible stories about how everyone can help to create value, development and learning.
In Leadership Lighthouse, we help leaders find their natural authority at it´s best, no matter if they need to adjust up or down.
A hard-to-define abstraction, but nonetheless very powerful in a work context.
When we work with presence, we focus both on being present with yourself- and presence with others. A leader who masters both disciplines is extremely strong when it comes to creating relationships.
We define presence as the ability to do one thing at a time. And to do this one thing comepletely.
The ability to be present - like almost everything else - can be trained and refined. In Leadership Lighthouse we specialize in this discipline.
Courageous leaders create remarkable results!
As a rule, we know very well what it takes to get closer to a desired goal. The reason why we might still not take action is often related to lack of courage.
Courage to go beyond what we know - and the courage to stick to a decision.
When courage is too much, we call it recklessness. That is the balance leaders must try to keep - and there is no guarantee that the formula that worked yesterday will work tomorrow.
In Leadership Lighthouse we aim to enhance the ability of the leader to move in an open and uncertain landscape - without losing focus.
