LEAD Academy

We strongly believe in providing leadership training throughout the organization. One of our mandatory leadership development programs is the Leadership Exploration And Development (LEAD) Academy for employees in managerial positions. The LEAD Academy consists of three modules, lasting two days each, with group work, and four individual coaching sessions in-between.

The academy leads to sustainable development of managers through 360 degree co-worker feedback and data, and creates awareness of good leadership. The academy provides participants with practical tools that can be used in everyday challenges. We believe skilled and highly performing managers lead to highly performing teams, and bringing managers together creates synergy between departments.

After a successful pilot project in our Copenhagen office, the LEAD Academy has now been rolled out in all Siteimprove offices.

It can push you out of your comfort zone, but it can also be very rewarding. You get to take a step back from what you’re normally doing and see yourself through the eyes of your colleagues, plus I’m getting actual tools to make myself a better manager.

I have no doubt that the LEAD Academy is worth it. The investment comes back tenfold. I can use what I’ve learned about myself on the LEAD Academy to become the leader that I want to be, and that Siteimprove wants me to be.
