Life Leadership

At PANDORA, we recognise the key role management plays in shaping a responsible, whole-hearted and profitable company. Therefore, we have developed a unique, global leadership development programme primarily for Vice Presidents and potential upcoming Vice Presidents. The main purpose is to establish a cadre of global-level leaders who model our values and demonstrates a passion for retail, growth and for getting the job done.


The programme aims to develop participants’ mastery of various leadership levels and styles, increase retail understanding and support group-wide coherence and networks. Among other development activities, Life Leadership requires participants to solve real business cases of strategic importance to PANDORA.

A vital part of the programme is the participants’ 360-degree evaluation by their own management, peers, partners and employees. During the one-year programme, the participants go through four different modules that take them all around the globe and through all the different aspects of leadership and the PANDORA business. One of the modules is designed in cooperation with and takes place at the Harvard Business School in Boston, USA.
