For leaders overseeing culture transformation

A one-of-a-kind experience that offers a perfect blend of executive education, business networking, and cultural enrichment.  




4-8 September 2023


10  participants


A comprehensive programme designed for executives seeking to achieve real organisational change. 
It includes interactions, practical exercises, peer learning, and networking. It features two company visits where participants will have the opportunity to meet executives with first-hand experience in cultural change. 

In addition to the business aspect it also contains a cultural component allowing the participants to explore Finnish culture.

After completing the CEO programme you will be able to:

  • describe national culture’s impact on organisational culture
  • illustrate executives’ role in shaping organisational culture
  • describe how executives can leverage national culture characteristics to improve culture and strategy alignment in their respective organisations
  • describe what successful executives can do to sponsor culture transformation programmes effectively
  • outline practical steps to improve their behaviour to influence organisational culture change positively

This exclusive programme provides a targeted approach to achieving real organisational change by focusing on the most senior leadership team members. It will demonstrate how corporate culture impacts the workplace, how leaders’ behaviours impact workplace culture, and how intercultural issues influence communication.

Designed for

CEOs, C-Suite Executives, Executive and Non-Executive Directors


An intensive face-to-face programme for a small group of executives over five days. This group session provides the benefit of interactions, exercises, peer learning and networking. We have also enriched the physical programme version to include several features, such as company visits for further interactions and networking with other executives that have successfully managed culture transformation programmes.

A group of 24 of our local leadership team members participated in Hofstede Insight´s CEO Program. The program enabled a very open and deeply personal reflection and discussion within the team on how we can further support our new GE strategy by our own behaviour, within the context of our local operations. The cultural insights provided made it easier for our team members to align their own way of working with the new strategy. I can highly recommend any manager working internationally to participate in this program.
