Student Reviews

I have never learned so much practicality during a course.
Very good practical exercises that I can use immediately after the course in my professional role. At the same time, the theory and research that was presented contributed to the knowledge bank in the workplace changes I work with.

The course was well invested time. I have gained knowledge and tools that strengthen me in my work with business-adapted and sustainable workplace solutions.

The course gave me a comprehensive and thorough review of what it means to work as a Workplace Strategist. It was great to get so many practical tools and that it was done very concretely.

Very good layout. Research, theory interspersed with practical exercises and good discussions that provided both aha experiences, a high recognition factor and new knowledge.
Inspirational course leader who succeeded well in keeping the interest up for us participants every three days.

The course was very good, some parts I feel I have insight into before and others I got new perspectives on.

“Good with a start about research, good exercises and a concrete common thread throughout the education. Good mix with exercises and theory. It was nice to meet others and exchange experiences. Can warmly recommend the course !! Many thanks!”
