WELCOME TO NMP 27
IN OCTOBER 2022!

 

A notable number of the leaders who in recent years have lead the reinvention of news media have experienced NMP as a valuable context for generating, formulating and debating ideas and thoughts for leading change in their mediahouses and teams — and for inspiring themselves.

Yet every new “edition” of NMP forms and brings a new situation, different challenges of leadership. The new programme starts as worklife is transitioning out of a pandemic that for two years has taught us to do almost all work individually, with increased self-leadership and even work from home. For leaders the challenges include developing new solutions for improving a culture of shared purpose and innovating together in a hybrid set-up of work.

At the same time, the challenge remains of leading our teams to practices and performance that make the most of the digital production technology that is now the basis of the industry.  Leaders must also make all this work in a context where the development of our Nordic societies, national, regional and local, is more fuzzy than before.

“More than before, we make the new NMP ‘start where you are at’ as a leader. Before the first NMP session in October, we engage you in exploring and specifying the current development needs of yourself and your team to help you make the most of your time in NMP. “

THOUGHTS ON NMP

”NMP is a fantastic opportunity to take a step back and refelct on your leadership and on what’s ahead. NMP simply makes people better, with the help of good facilitators, inspiring speakers, not to mention the interesting group work with colleagues from other parts of the media industry – all working with the same challenges and opportunities. 

The learnings and exciting ideas gained here give energy. And on top of everything – a network and friendships I hope will last a lifetime.”

NMP 25 was an exciting and educational time for me. I strengthened my strategic thinking, gained deeper insight in the digital transformation and, most importantly, gained a fantastic network of colleagues from the different Nordic countries.”

Kasper Krogh
Managing Editor
Berlingske

NMP supports development by provoking and inspiring participants. The intensive group discussions challenge you to question old beliefs and structures, and as a participant you really have to re-evaluate yourself as a leader as well as the role of the media industry as a whole. It is both useful and mind-boggling, at times even confounding, but the experienced coaches make sure the direction is always forward. The network and connections created between us participants are an extremely valuable added bonus. NMP gave me renewed strength to take on upcoming challenges.

Kristina Bingström
Editor in Chief and publisher
Smålandsposten

“For me NMP 25 was a fantastic journey. Thanks to the great speakers and workshops I developed deeper insight into the challenges that media houses face today. Moreover, I gained new friends and a broad network in other Nordic media houses. Most importantly, however, NMP gave me the tools I needed to take the next step in my career.”

Nina Dahlbäck
Assistant Editor in Chief and Publisher
Vasabladet


”NMP broadened my understanding of the challenges that the industry is facing and the programme was valuable to me for many reasons. Inspiring speakers, a methodology that created insights on e.g. business development and personal leadership. And last but not least, a valuable network of colleagues who share the same challenges as me. Pure gold!”

THE NMP WAY OF WORKING

As opposed to traditional leadership programmes, the NMP-sessions are not filled with endless powerpoint presentations. In NMP time is dedicated to co-working on solutions and finding answers that will serve all participants. The learning process of challenging with questions and taking part in dialogue is lead by experienced and passionate coaches, firestarters, knowledge creators and researchers in the fields of leadership, customer relations, society and media.

QUESTION-DRIVEN LEARNING

NMP is an intensive learning process that builds on collaborative knowledge-creation and question-driven learning. The process is driven by good questions and in each sessions participants are challenged to develop their own questions relating to the the theme at hand. We work together on each others questions – knowledge is created through dialogue.

The starting point for creating engagement and dialogue in the sessions is found in concrete questions posed by leaders in different organisations. Armed with new tools, concepts and research results our participants go about creating their own understanding of and answers to the questions presented. An important aspect of the knowledge-creation process is leaving the meeting room in order to visit, observe and interact with reality. NMP not only develops participants’ understanding of the themes discussed. In NMP we put great emphasis on supporting the change that participants are working on in their own organisations. Going from understanding to real action requires hands-on experiences and a desire to use the new tools in practice.
