We promote productive and human-centric leadership!

Leadership is either your organization’s biggest obstacle or enabler. Our management and leadership development programs and trainings elevate your organization’s leadership models and abilities to the desired level. Investments in leadership development have a considerable ROI.

The quality of the leadership is one of the most important individual factors affecting the productivity and well-being of the organization

However, depending on the study, 50 – 85% of managers feel that they have insufficient leadership skills.

By investing in development of leadership, you will achieve significant benefits:

More well-being

The manager’s pressures and frustrations decrease as their capabilities increase. Experiences of success and achievement are created instead. A competent and capable manager also increases the well-being of the whole workplace community.

Greater results and productivity

Better leadership skills strengthen the productivity of both employees and leaders. The focus shifts from friction to productive activity. At the same time, your company’s recruitment pressure will decrease.

A more united workplace community

High-quality management work and leadership increases team spirit and directs competent people towards common goals. The workplace community becomes more united and stronger!

Better engagement

A manager struggling with difficulties is more likely to resign. In addition, his actions affect employee engagement. Experiencing poor leadership is the most common reason for changing jobs.

A modern manager knows how to support and coach employees in a way that brings out their best sides – increasing the employees’ self-organization skills and their ability to take greater ownership of their role and responsibilities within the organization.

Lifted’s leadership training is based on the framework of sustainable leadership and at its core are successful, capable, and skilled management teams, leaders, and managers.

An organization’s target culture and strategy form the basis for developing effective leadership

The management team is responsible for the culture and quality of management work, which both consciously and unconsciously determines the level of the whole organization’s leadership.

Leadership principles and operating models based on strategy and values are planned, agreed, and documented together with the management team and leaders.

The development of managers’ and leaders’ self-awareness is the basis for building and developing sustainable, high-quality, and interactive leadership and management skills.

Successful leaders know themselves and their team

The basis of good leadership is self-awareness, recognizing one’s own strengths and areas for development. A successful manager and leader implements the organization’s common values and strategy, as well as the common leadership principles and operating models.

We achieve the best results with long-term and goal-oriented development and training programs

We always tailor our services according to the needs of your organization.

We start the cooperation with you with a kick-off meeting, mapping, and goal-setting.

If necessary, we support the initial assessment with surveys, interviews, and orienting pre-work.

We utilize the methods and tools that match best with your goals in order to maximize the effectiveness of the program.

To implement the common principles, operating models, and lessons learned we additionally utilize, for example, various exercises, work-life experiments, and coaching.

We evaluate the effectiveness of the training several times, both during and after the program.

Our seamless development programs are designed combining our effective methods and tools

Interactive workshops and lectures

In workshops and lectures, we create a common understanding of the core topics of leadership, encourage change, and develop skills in an inspiring and concrete way. Our way of working is interactive. Events are held both onsite and remotely, in English and in Finnish.

Individual coaching

Our experienced and certified coaches help managers individually. In coaching, we dive deeper into the challenges and opportunities of leadership work and personal development. Coaching provides excellent concrete support for the long-term development in leadership and overcoming individual challenges.

Analyses and profiles to develop self-awareness

We use proven analysis methods such as Workplace Big Five, DiSC, and Peili to understand personality as well as behavior and to improve self-awareness. The methods also work well in developing the fluency of management team work and teamwork in general.

Assignments and practical exercises

Transferring new knowledge and skills into practice is guided in a supported manner between the joint events in order to achieve the desired change. Experiences from worklife are reflected on both independently and collectively

Documented leadership principles and guidelines

The target culture and leadership model are described by jointly prepared leadership principles and leadership promises. The necessary practical instructions and documents for the management (such as annual calendars, task descriptions, and meeting practices) can be produced together.

Guides and workbooks

If necessary, management and leadership models, leaders’s operating instructions or descriptions, and stories supporting the target culture can be compiled into guides. Workbooks are used in training programs, for example, as planning and monitoring tools for personal development and as an aid in reflection.

Group coaching and case clinics

In group coaching and case clinics, challenging and essential issues of working life and the workplace community can be treated constructively under the guidance of an experienced coach. The participants support each other and strengthen the important peer support network of the organization. An experienced facilitator always guides the group towards a solution.

Surveys and effectiveness measuring

We use surveys, interviews, and other research methods to support development. Effectiveness is measured and also boosted with surveys and metrics based on the starting points of the business and the goals of the program.

Virtual learning platform

In a virtual learning platform, the information, support, and inspiration are available when there is a need and time for them. Coaches are available for interactive coaching. The learning platform combines the elements as a concise program.

We have developed leadership and management i.e. in the following organizations:

CASE: Fluido

”The training program was not only passive lectures, it offered us concrete tools to support our daily leadership that have been taken into use effectively. I have especially appreciated the substance of provided tools, procedures and team work assignments.

Lifted team understands well what we need – the co-operation has worked very well with them. They are genuinely interested in what our people need in order to develop. Lifted provides also support for organizing and communicating the training program which has been especially useful for us in HR. They did not come to us with a ready package but acted genuinely as partners and tailored the training to meet our needs.”

Pauliina Löytty

Head of People & Culture


CASE: Qvik

“The principles of leadership have significantly clarified the work of supervisors and supported the work of Team Leads at Qvik. The results of coaching leadership have materialized, for example, in one-to-one discussions between Team Leads and team members. Team Leads are able to challenge appropriately and ask high-quality and relevant questions.

Through the training, Team Leads have formed a network that supports and helps each other. Coaching leadership and a coaching culture are desired to be spread throughout the entire organization, to all supervisors and management. Team Leads are also able to demand coaching leadership approach from their own supervisors.”

CASE: Maria01

As Maria01 grew and welcomed new employees, there was a need to create a shared culture and way of operating. Collaboration with Lifted began with an organizational culture workshop. Lifted was chosen as a partner due to their understanding of growth companies, among other candidates. The culture day was successful and sparked enthusiasm to continue developing in the field of leadership. Maria01’s “Development as a Leader” leadership development program included sections on leadership team collaboration, individual leadership skills, and membership in the leadership team.

Ville appreciates that Lifted was able to collectively define the needs and build a suitable training program for Maria01. He also praises the smooth collaboration and seamless communication throughout the project. Ville highly recommends Lifted’s training to all organizations that are forward-thinking and eager to develop. “When you build on a solid foundation, you reap the greatest benefits. The size of the organization doesn’t matter, whether it’s a growth company or a larger enterprise. What’s important is that the organization understands the significance of leadership and organizational culture.”
