Health Promoting and Sustainable Leadership
The World Health Organization has deemed coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, a global pandemic and confirmed cases have grown exponentially in many countries.
Experts expect confirmed cases to grow in the Nordics as well. The virus has infected hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.
To help slow the spread of the virus, governments in the Nordics have suggested that large gatherings be avoided, and many companies and organisations have inflicted travel restrictions.
Therefore, we are cancelling the course Health Promoting and Suistainable Leadership.
We will try to reschedule the course and will inform you about the new dates as soon as they are set.
The course focuses on the multi-component factors and conditions of importance for a sustainable leadership, from a system perspective (individual – group – workplace – organization – society). In these aspects, the course focuses especially on contemporary challenges such as creating attractive, inclusive and innovative workplaces. The course also applies a hands-on perspective of managerial work to support application in practice.
The purpose of the course is to provide the participants with clear insights of current empirical evidence of health promoting leadership and how it can be supported from system perspectives. The participants will gain an understanding of the theoretical background concepts and their practical application in form of concrete tools to be applied in various work contexts.

Leadership of high quality is considered a key condition for organizing more attractive work with beneficial working conditions promoting employees' health and work engagement. Qualities in leadership and approaches to meet employees and work with improvements have impact also on sustainable developments in general. This is also acknowledged by authorities, e.g. the Swedish Work Environment Authority (2015:16).
Key factors and conditions for workers health, well-being and engagement have been identified through several literature reviews and the evidence based knowledge is rather robust – and the interactions between individual, group and organizational risk resp. resource factors have often stronger importance. Therefore, managerial work, based on knowledge to handle interactions and combinations of risk and resource factors and conditions across different organizational levels, are needed and are crucial for sustainable development. However, managers also need organizational preconditions, competence and developed handling strategies for being able to meet the complex challenges in social and organizational working conditions and taking leadership of building capacity for more sustainable working conditions.
