The Genuine Leader

This is a crash course in leadership and group development powered by the Human Element and influenced by Swedish leadership classic UGL!

The Genuine LeaderWhen American psychologist Dr. Will Schutz came up with his now world famous FIRO-theory in the early fifties, little did he know how much he would affect today’s understanding of group dynamics and leadership. Schutz dedicated his life to the exploration and understanding of humans and human interactions. He called his collective findings and thoughts from almost 50 years of research, The Human Element® (THE). Today, Schutz’s work is utilized in human resources and organizational development on five continents.

Sweden’s foremost leadership workshop is called UGL; Understanding Groups and Leadership. It is a 5-day process oriented workshop, focusing on group dynamics and leadership that has had over 100.000 participants. The UGL is owned by the Swedish Military and has been mandatory in their officer training since the mid eighties. It became very popular among civilian companies and organizations during the nineties. The UGL-concept is grounded on a theory of group development based on Will Schutz’s FIRO-theory.
