UGL is a leadership training for everyone who wants to understand leadership and teamwork in groups and who wants to explore their own role. The training originates from the Swedish National Defense fundamental leadership training for aspiring officers: Utveckling av grupp och ledare, UGL (Development of Group and Leaders, sometimes in English named Understanding Group and Leaders).
Today UGL is one of the most popular leadership trainings in Sweden both in private and public sectors.
UGL provides a great understanding of what happens in groups and how groups develop. It also shows how leadership is both a provider and a prerequisite for the growth of the group into a highly effective team. It gives you a great insight of your own role as a team member and your leadership capabilities.
The training method for UGL termed “experiential learning” and is based on Kolb’s theories of learning. Group members face different tasks as a group to handle or resolve. This creates shared experiences which are explored by the group and learning is created. With the help of accepted scientific theories, the experiences and learnings are even more clear. The group and the individuals are living in their own learning situation and through action and reflection creates new ways to think and behave in relation to others.
