UGL in english - Understading Group and Leader

The UGL – Understanding Group and Leader - course was developed for the Swedish National Defense Academy in 1981. In the late 1980’s the UGL course became increasingly popular within the Swedish business community and is today considered one of the best - and by far the most attended leadership development course in Sweden.
UGL will give you an increased understanding of how group dynamics affect results and how leadership style should be adapted to the group´s maturity stage and specific task at hand.
