21st CENTURY LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR PROGRAM
A cutting edge leadership program that upgrades your organization from the 20th Century to the 21st Century Paradigm
Futureproofe yourself and your organization
TRANSFORM & LEAD THE FUTURE
THE RULES OF THE GAME HAVE CHANGED
1. The new leadership is more about who you ARE than about what you DO.
Todays employees – or customers – don´t follow random strategies or bosses just because they have a title or a once-upon-a-time honored brand. They are more likely to give their best to – or invest in – inspiring role models.
The purpose of the program is therefore to develop a critical number of luminous frontrunners that others want to follow, and who have a positive ripple effect. On their colleagues. On the culture. On the magnetic strength of the brand. And – if they are allowed – on the organizational system.
2. The new leadership is more about vocation than career.
The purpose of the program is to align the inner calling of key influential players with the higher purpose of the organisation which again needs be aligned with the evolutionary impulse, so there is no zig-zag energy waste or discrepancy between core values at home, at work and in the world, but rather that all efforts contribute to both to a thriving workforce, a healthy bottom line and Humanity on a larger scale.
3. We are entering a new era where we need creativity, flexibility and holistic thinking just as much as analytical skills, drive and action.
A well-developed intuition has become necessary in order to navigate with clarity in an information overloaded society changing at an exponential pace.
The purpose of the program is to develop leaders who master both their masculine and feminine energies – and the dance between them that creates flow – so they can implement better ways of working with ease (and solve the diversity problem in the same go).
4. We all need to make an effort to prevent stress before it disempowers our most valuable asset: talent (ourselves included).
The program aims to develop leaders who are able to surf powerfully on chaos and take themselves and others up instead of down – no matter what.
5. In the 4th industrial revolution, robots and artificial intelligence take over more and more rational – even creative jobs.
Therefore we need to become masters of the only things robots cannot (yet) imitate: heart, spirit and energy.
The program aims to upgrade partipants inner Operating System in order to future proof the organisation, instead of trying to run the “latest apps” on an expired state of consciousness.
THE PLAN FOR ORGANIZATIONAL UPGRADE TO THE 21st CENTURY OPERATING SYSTEM
– can be customized according to individual organizational needs.
The 21st CENTURY LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR PROGRAM FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION IS COMPOSED OF 3 ELEMENTS
1. Those responsible for driving the change are invited to apply for an external program, ILLUMINARY LEADERSHIP, where A-players from different companies help each other rise to their highest potential. It´s a 12 month journey where members get inspired by cutting edge trends in technology, business and spirituality and cross-fertilize with Visionary people from other environments to avoid tunnel vision.
2. Selected (promising) leaders, intrapreneurs and fiery souls participate in an IN-HOUSE 9-12 month FUTURE LEADERSHIP program, enabling participants to lead the future. This program is delivered in pods of max 12 people to allow individual attention for each. For example, one pioneering pod could start in fall, then two more could start in spring, and so on.
3. The rest of the organization gets grafted with the new OS through
a) distribution of book describing the 7 facets of 21st Century Leadership,
b) access to online training in these 7 facets of 21st Century Leadership including nudging to actually use the tools
c) regular talks/workshops /on-demand “Illuminary rescue” learning labs about the different aspects of the new operating system.
The core curriculum of ILLUMINARY LEADERSHIP, the In-house program LEAD THE FUTURE, the online training and the book is similar.
What differs is the LEVEL of leadership and the INTENSITY of the transformation.
Basically the entire organization would benefit from aligning to the 21st Century OS and learn the 7 Facets of Illuminary Leadership so the company can shine as a global rolemodel leading the future instead of being led by other frontrunners.
EVEN IF YOUR ORGANIZATION ALREADY HAS OTHER LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
You don´t have anything like this.
Innovation comes from experimenting with various approaches simultaneously.
WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM UNIQUE?
- The focus is not primarily on what to do, but who participants need to BE in order to step up to the next level of (worldchanging) leadership.
- The program is not only about information and inspiration, but about transformation.
- There is a strong emphasis on personal development, transitioning from ego (20th Century OS) to Essence (21st Century OS).
- Participants are aware that what got them to where they are is unlikely to take them to the next step: success is now an inner game.
- It includes a component of working with energy because your energy introduces you before you even speak.
- The program also updates the mindset, tools and every day practices to the new reality, thereby enabling systemic change.
- The program is designed to develop the changemakers who can futureproofe the organization.
- We will work with all intelligences: IQ, EQ, SQ, PQ, CQ
- We will train new skills in alignment with cutting edge findings in fields like neuroscience and energy management.
- We will experiment with new ways of working and innovating
- We will use the most effective shortcut methods spanning from hardcore science based brain training to yoga and shamanic work
- We will grow our innovation power by exposing ourselves to radically different perspectives ranging from futurists and enlightened masters to tech gurus and quantum physicists.
THE TRANSFORMATIONAL PROGRAM
At a glance
THIS PROGRAM APPEALS MOSTLY TO THE FRONTRUNNERS OF THE ORGANIZATION
who might otherwise exit, but who play an important role as trendsetters and changemakers.
They act as catalysts for cultural change.
Use them or lose them.
It takes only relatively few dedicated pioneers to affect the Whole.
THE PROGRAM IS FOR A-PLAYERS IN THE ORGANISATION WHO FEEL CALLED TO EVOLVE BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT
- you are in danger of tunnelvision if you don´t broaden your perspective by being in interaction with other brilliant minds that think radically different from yourself
- you are in danger of missing out on crucial shifts in the zeitgeist because you don´t have time to stay up to speed
- you are in danger of burning out because you simply work too much (and sleep too little and have too little time for self-care)
- you are in danger of misusing your gifts if you only focus on making money, when you could make even more by doing good
- you are in danger of being disrupted because of unforeseen sudden changes in your company, industry, career or family. And then what?
- you are in danger of feeeling worthless if you only feel you are “somebody” because of your performance
- you are in danger of being only a half-excellent leader because you dont master both your feminine and your masculine qualities (regardless of gender)
- you are in danger of becoming a dinosaur because you don´t master the new rules of the game
- you are in danger of becoming disillusioned and leave the company because you feel it´s too rigid and old-fashioned.
Participants do not qualify for this unique program if they don´t have all of the following:
- A Go Giver attitude: awareness that you get what you give, and more.
- Interest in personal development
- A learning mindset (vs fixed mindset)
- Openminded- and hearted-ness towards new: new generations, technology, foreign cultures, perspectives, practices, habits & paradigms.
- Commitment to serve both your own highest good, that of the company and Humanity.
ROI FOR THE COMPANY
- Rolemodels who carry the new leadership DNA and thus can spread the new leadership paradigm to others
- Spearheads who can help renew the organization in alignment with 21st Century mega trends
- Unstressed and productive lighthouses who can lead the way for better ways of working
- Inspiring collegues who can bring new tools to meetings and more effective management practices into the company
- Lesser risk of brain drain of the most creative talent which typically leave businesses that are not up to speed.
GAINS FOR PARTICIPANTS
- In-depth knowledge of the new time rules of the game
- Experience with cutting edge methods to bring out the best in yourself, in others and in teams
- A effective space for reflection on how you and your organization can work smarter and thus achieve more with less
- Experience in translating the new rules of the game into practice
- A supportive network of like-minded sparring partners across the organization.
THE PROGRAM IS CENTERED AROUND THE 7 DIMENSIONS OF 21ST CENTURY LEADERSHIP

Opened up a higher perspective on life, career and my true calling
Eva Kloeve, leader at World Bank, DC.
Have become more creative, productive and visionary
“I have learned so much that has changed so much for me. I have significantly strengthened my self-worth and my direction, and my creativity and productivity have increased while my stress has decreased.
I’ve got new good work habits, a great network and now even “impossible” dreams seem realistic.”
Tine Pia Jensen, CEO, Lumuma Production & brand agency
Nominated as Leader of the year and Colleague of the year
“My current leadership training with Kirsten is the most transformative I have ever experienced. The fact that it lasts almost a year and with monthly and weekly virtual meetings, makes it impossible not to establish new practices… I have gained more physical strength, inner peace and not least more joy of life in general. The support from both Kirsten, her eminent and inspiring co-leaders and the entire cheering choir on the team means that I am now rooted in a community that gives me great strength and inspiration for my everyday life. With the results we already see for ourselves, those of us who participate in Kirsten’s training this year, I can not imagine anyone other than Kirsten, who can bring a group of leaders regardless of their gender, so far in such a short time – and with so much joy, laughter, togetherness, inspiration, energy, spirit, motivation and perseverance. Kirsten is truly a master at bringing out the most beautiful light in all of us and ensuring that we are nourished for both body and soul. I have just been told that I am now both nominated for Colleague of the Year and Leader of the Year – it would not have happened without this training!”
Laila Kofoed Chef, Head of IT Gjensidige Insurance
The best I have done for my career – it beats all outplacement programs
“The leadership development course as a feminine future leader: It’s the best thing I’ve done in my career,
as the training deals with all the tools needed to lead in the new age as a whole person with the use of a feminine and masculine mind-set and practices.
Highly recommend Kirsten Stendevad’s training to everyone. It beats all outplacement programs.”
Gitte Madelaire, Head of Operations and Minister of Culture, Ensure
Have received better balance, clarity self-worth, courage and drive
“I can highly recommend Kirsten Stendevad’s leadership training. It is a wild transformational journey, where we work from the inside out, creating an inner balance between the feminine and the masculine.
I have lived a large part of my life in predominance of the masculine, with achievement and action, but completely forgot to enjoy from the feminine.
Kirstens exercises are effective and have for me so far created greater results with an inner feeling of calm and balance. There is a super good mix between theory and practice in the training.
My feminine power has slowly increased, I dare to express it more, I now feel it physically in my body. At the same time, I have gained self-worth.
Kirsten oozes of feminine power, and she has a heart of gold.
I am so lucky and grateful to be part of her training where we learn to lead the future.”
Janni Servais, Business coach specialized in better customer care, FOCUS Consulting
Invaluable support for pioneers
“Thank you so much for your unstoppable dedication and abundant heart energy. To me, it is a surplus of a carat that is completely unique. Role model!
I have known some of the things you teach for many years, but because of your leader training I get to apply them, and therefore I have grown in completely new ways, with the wholeness intact.
I could not do the pioneering work I do without the support of the group – it is invaluable.”
Kirsten Krogh CEO, Out-of-the-box & Beyond-the-box
Worth twice the price
“I paid for the program out of my savings, and even if it would have cost the double, it would have been worth every penny. It has been truly life- and career transforming. I had a big vision when I cam into the program, when I left I had the power to carry it out without stress”
Got more courage and bigger Visions
“I am grateful for my education in feminine leadership with Kirsten. It has given me the courage to have bigger visions and a strong drive to create better results with more wholeness and balance.”
Corporate Sustainability Director Dell
A loving and competent training in the consciousness of the new era
“The leadership training with Kirsten Stendevad is a competent, loving and enlightened introduction to the consciousness of the new era. On all levels, Kirsten Stendevad has a God-given ability to transcend and facilitate many years of experience in leadership and awareness work. She inspires leaders at all levels and introduces effective tools for 21st Century leadership in the most beautiful way.”
CEO DesignMind – the award-winning leading expert in Conscious Branding
Have taken a quantum leap as a person and leader
“As a dedicated guide, Kirsten creates amazing settings for learning and personal development. Here she manages to build a bridge between the future-visionary feminine universe and the completely tangible tools that immediately strengthened my daily management. I have taken a quantum leap personally, as a leader and in my private life.”
The World would be a better place if all leaders took this training
“It is a fantastic enriching experience to participate in Kirsten Stendevad’s Future Leadership training. She has a huge reference apparatus, which she generously shares, in the form of anecdotes, quotes, an enormously broad knowledge of everything from quantum physics to spirituality as well as her own life experience. I have learned to use the feminine and masculine energy in a conscious and productive way that promotes creativity, intuition, proactivity, empathy, dynamism and momentum. The transformative learning most often takes place in a “learning-by-doing mode” through both bodily and thought pattern exercises. There is also an extraordinary power in the groups she puts together. Everyone sees and lifts each other in a very positive and life-giving light. There is no doubt that the World would be a better place if all leaders took Kirsten’s training.”
