Welcome to BlueBehavior
- making the world a better place, one leader at a time
Free resources to support remote working
Given the present need to work from home, and to lead those who work at home, all resources are allocated to making the LeapCards and corresponding remote engagement expertise available in global B2B projects.
New cards are being added, and best practices are shared publicly via LinkedIn - as in the articles below:
- Global Training Gone Corona - best practices for moving training online
- Don't let Covid19 Cancel Your Meetings - 3x3 suggestions for remote leadership
- Final Minutes Before Remote Takeoff - countdown checklist before any online session
Please leave comments and share if the articles are of use to you.
Behavior. Behavior as the actions that make leaders worth following! And blue as in calm and considerate, out there big blue offshore and in the blue ocean future. In combination, BlueBehavior is a Danish consulting company, founded in 2013 by me, Ulrik Ramsing, and I am still delivering on projects, programs and products world-wide with a proven network of interdependent consultants in Denmark, Holland, Belgium, India, Brazil and the US.
As noted: a few close colleagues and an international network of experienced resources, all working together for the overall purpose of making the world a better place, one leader at a time.
We do so by helping individual leaders and leadership teams make robust decisions, especially under adverse circumstances such as time pressure, great uncertainties or across cultures.
And we have been out there, supporting executive teams and groups of talents across most of the world, from China to the US, from South Africa to Svalbard; in-office, offshore and on special locations.
Some programs have engaged a handful of executives in a new, emerging market every quarter. Others have offered repeated cycles with hundreds of participants; one global program have been running nearly a decade.

Global Program Manager, uniQure
“Ulrik is very enthusiastic, dedicated and hard-working and I very much recommend his courses. Especially the ‘shortcut-slides’ represent great value when you need to brush up your theoretical knowledge. It has been great working with Ulrik Ramsing, and I can highly recommend his magnificent teaching skills.”

“Fantastic use of technology, insights how to use technology effectively in new ways of working.”
Head of Mechanical & CAD Engineering Department, Stamicarbon
“Amazingly broad and complete leadership program. The majority of the concepts can be applied almost imidiately in the workplace. Ulrik Ramsing makes it clear how to engage with your team members and colleagues in different situations/conversations. The tech/new way of working is a nice addition, that probably not many courses offer. ”

As you are still here and perhaps considering, a few unusual aspects of working with the team at BlueBehavior.
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication", said Einstein. Ideas must be self-evident and memorable. Good research and best-practice experiments are needed; heavy books and long articles are not necessar(il)y for everyone.
Less is more.
