While the materials are comprehensive, we have structured the contents in such a way that you can complete the videos and homework assignments in just 30 minutes every 2 weeks. (Thus a total of 1 hour per month).

We have done this to accommodate those of you who have very demanding work and study schedules.
All videos are accompanied by detailed text documents and homework assignments. So you can both read and watch, to better internalize the ideas. Finally, the homework assignments are there to spur self-reflection and prompt you to take action. We will then provide feedback on your answers by e-mail (in accordance to our biweekly Sunday schedule).
Due to the personal nature of this course, and given our own time constraints, we have a limited amount of spots available for the Future Skills Program. To date, we have gotten several hundred applications, where we spotted a clear pattern: young and ambitious people, and older more experienced people looking for highly specific advice. To accommodate this, we have made both a basic package which is very affordable (as seen above) and an extensive package (which is more expensive and includes private video consults with Mikael). 

To apply for the course, fill out the form at the bottom of the page linked below and we will get back to you within 72 hours:
