For New and Aspiring Leaders

Our leadership program is designed for those embarking on their first leadership role or aspiring to build a successful career in leadership.

We personalize the course to align with the practical needs of your company.

A Program Customized for Your Company

Say goodbye to heavy leadership theories, theoretical cases, and hypothetical examples that seem disconnected from your reality.

Our program is centred around you and your unique challenges.

We provide you with tasks from module to module, so you gain practical experience and learn along the way. All the exercises are relevant for you and your specific situation.

The program unfolds at a pace that allows you to absorb the learning and apply it:

  • If your schedule is tight, we will extend the program over five months
  • If you are in a hurry to learn, the program takes three months

Most importantly, you get to put your newfound knowledge into practice, allowing us to reflect on the experience together – and refine it for even better results next time.

Meet Your Instructors:

We are Johnny Sørensen and Elize Dimare, the driving force behind the program. Together, we bring over 45 years of practical leadership experience. In addition to our roles as advisors and leadership trainers, we regularly assume interim leadership positions, ensuring our skills stay updated and relevant and allowing us to apply our theories in real-world scenarios.

We remember what it was like to be new in a leadership role ourselves, and there are many experiences that we wish someone had shared with us. It would have saved us time, effort, and resources. Now, we want to share those experiences with you so that, together, we can help you become the best leader you can be, right from the start.

"We have used Fire & Shield for education, training, and alignment of our management group. This has occurred in two courses, where the goal was to create a common language and a common management agenda. It worked out really well. A common focus has been established, and from working with one's own problems and challenges, there is now a clear foundation for cooperation. We have taken the first significant steps from a group of leaders to a leadership group. Now we have to carry it forward ourselves - on a solid foundation and with good tools."
