Masterclass overview

Happy and engaged employees are essential to any corporation to ensure future growth, yet 87% of employees across the world say they are disengaged in what they do.


It has been proven that companies with high trust and individual freedom have more innovation and better financial performance. In this very inspiring masterclass, Malene Rydahl demonstrates how we can build a solid base of trust and freedom to be ourselves with a high degree of individual responsibility. To attract and keep the best talent, companies need to have a common project with higher purpose.

Value and expected outcomes

  • Defining and moving obstacles to create a culture of trust with individual responsibility and engagement from the employees
  • By becoming more conscious about our own values and navigation in life, this will enable a better understanding of others to improve communication and sense of freedom to be ourselves. This leads to more innovation, creativity and productivity
  • Defining the common purpose of the company generates more committed and engaged employees. Being aware of their own purpose in life also activates this commitment

What is covered?

This engaging masterclass will focus on tools and techniques to cultivate engaged, innovative and happy employees based on a purpose-driven culture with high trust, freedom to be yourself and empathy as core drivers:

  • Trust – defining and moving obstacles to build trust in a common project
  • Freedom to be yourself – knowing myself and my values to better understand others by using empathy as a guide to communicate
  • Purpose – understanding the purpose of the company to engage employees by also finding their own purpose
