Mayor of Viborg Municipality
On 1 January 2018, Ulrik Wilbek took over the mayoral post in Viborg Municipality. The local politician is a trained school teacher, but perhaps best known from his time as a handball coach, i.a. as national team coach for both the men’s and women’s national teams.
The mayor has also written 7 books and has given over 1000 lectures on leadership, motivation and talent development. Wilbek is trained in NLP, coaching and is licensed to test in Garuda’s personal & competency profiles. He was the first coach to include the profile as a tool on the men’s national handball team.
Ulrik Wilbek considers management from both the sports stage, the business stage and the public stage. The experienced leader shares his good advice here at Cocuura and connects the best of all worlds, providing a nuanced and exciting approach to leadership.
In 2020, Wilbek’s wife suffered major bleeding in the brain and thus, the mayor unfortunately knows what he is talking about when it comes to critical illness and serious life crises.
