Additional Information


'Mette is Adjunct Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, where she specializes in experiential leadership development and serves on the faculty and coaching staff of open-enrolment and company-specific programmes for high potentials and senior executives.

All of Mette’s work revolves around supporting the development of responsible and effective leadership—at the individual, group, and organisational level. Over two decades of experience in different roles across management, consulting, and academia give her a broad perspective on the strategic value of leadership development, and a unique ability to leverage it for the benefits of companies and their members.

As a senior executive for a global corporation in the Food Ingredients Industry, Mette crafted and implemented strategies for maintaining a healthy pipeline of future leaders. As an instructor, consultant, and coach she designs and delivers leadership development initiatives for cohorts of managers, intact teams, and individual executives. Mette draws on different methodologies to deliver leadership development courses, group consultation, and executive coaching. Common to all of her work, however, is a reflective and experiential component, resting on the principle that adults learn best through experience.

Mette works mainly with global corporations and international institutions. At INSEAD, she has been involved in executive programmes for companies in the professional services, financial services, precision engineering, education, and FMCG sectors. As a consultant and executive coach, she has worked with leaders and teams from a wide range of organizations and cultural backgrounds. She works virtually and on site with clients across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the US. Alongside her work at INSEAD, Mette manages her own consulting and executive coaching company based in Copenhagen. Prior to joining INSEAD, she contributed to executive education programmes, and to the MBAs, at IMD in Switzerland and at Copenhagen Business School in Denmark. Mette Stuhr is co-directing INSEAD Coaching Certificate and the Essentials of Coaching programmes.

Mette holds a MA in International Business, a MA in Strategic Human Resource Management and is certified in Organizational Psychology. Born and raised in Denmark, she has lived abroad at various times. She lives in Copenhagen with her husband and two teenage children.
