With a “people-first” emphasis, Mannaz offers two interconnected resources for creative business solutions: Consulting and Learning.

What is an organisation’s greatest competitive advantage?
When employees at every level are motivated, they work passionately towards a common purpose and exemplify an organisation’s values.
With our global reach, we can support the world’s largest organisations and enable them to achieve real sustainable change.
Learning since 1975
Mannaz was founded in Denmark as DIEU in 1975, specifically focusing on leadership education. To this day, our Consulting and Learning services are focused on enabling real impact and empowering people, organisations and society.
New knowledge is only valuable when it comes into use. All too often we give in to habit, and don’t get to use our new knowledge enough. At Mannaz, all learning is closely related to practice. We strive to always take a starting point in concrete and relevant cases and examples, and so ensure that new knowledge easily transfers into new solutions, behaviours, relations, and habits.
Our team of 75 people have a broad and impressive background in specific disciplines, academic theory, and human behaviour. They’re accompanied by 150 experts, consultants and facilitators from 25 countries.
Mannaz is a Participant of the United Nations Global Compact and adheres to its principles-based approach to responsible business.

A “People First” Emphasis
Mannaz provides innovative business thinking to empower leaders with the capabilities required to meet today’s challenges. By stimulating change within an organisation, newly inspired leaders can encourage all employees to work together to help an organisation reach its full potential.
Scandinavian leadership principles have become a hallmark of progressive management thinking worldwide. Open and collaborative, they have repeatedly proven that people achieve more when they feel valued, engaged and motivated.
The meaning of the word Mannaz highlights our people-centric ethos. It is both Old Norse for “human being” and the name of the ancient Nordic rune letter that symbolizes “people.” Not only does the English word “man” (mankind) originate from Mannaz, but it’s one of the oldest and most authentic renderings for the notion of human. The Mannaz logo is intentionally handwritten to underscore the focal point of our business – the unique human being.
Consulting and Learning
With a “people-first” emphasis, Mannaz offers two interconnected resources for creative business solutions: Consulting and Learning. The goal of each is to develop greater human potential so business leaders can overcome challenges today and develop opportunities for tomorrow.
By helping companies solve issues from within their own ranks, Mannaz also maintains the stability of highly valued personnel. With roots in Scandinavia, but with global reach and understanding, the Mannaz model for success is network oriented. It promotes the development of people by building, empowering and trusting their confidence and abilities through delegation.
