"Pirjo is a highly professional business coach. With her inspiring, personal approach, she has coached me to new insights and helped me to recognize not only various behaviours, but my strenghts and development areas which I have been able to exploit in my leadership and daily work. "Sari Mannonen, Vice President of UPM Biofuels "I was privileged to have Pirjo Puhakka as my coaching supervisor in 2018. Pirjo is a seasoned coach who draws from a wealth of international coach training and has experience with all kinds of coaching clients. Coaching supervision was an excellent way to take time for structured reflection on all aspects of my coaching practice. As a coaching supervisor Pirjo created a confidential and creative space in which I was able to be curious about my coaching work and deepen my ability to be present in the process of coaching. Coaching supervision has helped me to formulate my own coaching philosophy and create better coaching interventions for the benefit of my clients. I highly recommend Pirjo Puhakka as a coaching supervisor for anyone wanting to take their coaching practice to the next level." Minna Sütö, Leadership Coach and Trainer, Creative Compass Oy "I had a pleasure to be coached by Pirjo during the start of my last year studies for Executive MBA in Henley/Reading University. The coaching style Pirjo uses makes one truly work through the inner thoughts to remove the barriers we all subconsciously create ourselves to hinder our success. I left from each of the three sessions with full of energy, clearness for what are the next actions I need to take to move forward in reaching my goals. As a coach Pirjo is very pleasent and easy to talk to. She has great listening skills and can quickly add insights by probing deeper questions with her broad professional exeprience. I can highly recommend Pirjo for anyone willing to invest time to explore those answers you have inside but havíng difficulty to let them surface!" Sari Uusitalo, Director, Dell EMC "I’ve had several years co-operation with Pirjo and I’ve found her as excellent and encouraging coach. Pirjo has succesfully helped in our team development and also my own development as a leader. I can highly recommend Pirjo as a coach." Heikki Myllyniemi, CIO at Finnish Red Cross Blood Service “Pirjo has been acting as a Personal Tutor and Coach for Henley Executive MBA students since 2011. She provides coaching to students who all are experienced managers. Her personal support and coaching has been about study issues and also issues related to their personal development, work-life-study balance and leadership development. Pirjo has received excellent feedback from our students of her coaching skills and support. She is focused, reliable and has great ability to concentrate to the essentials. I can truly recommend Pirjo.” Annu Matula, Director, Henley Business School ”I have known Pirjo since 2012, thus I have had the pleasure of working with her closely for the last two years. Pirjo has helped me with my MBA studies at Henley Business School by supporting my learning in many ways. Her friendly and encouraging style has helped me to find solutions for many difficult situations. Pirjo has strengthened my leadership skills, and she has helped me planning my future career as well. In brief, I find her an excellent coach.” Arna Bertin, MBA, Managing Director at Ostinato Oy ”Olen erittäin tyytyväinen coaching-prosessiimme. Pirjossa on juuri niitä ominaisuuksia mitä coachissa erityisesti arvostan. Hän on todella läsnä, hyvä kuuntelija, osaa valita oivalluttavat kysymykset oikeissa kohdissa ja haastaa lujan lempeästi kun on sen aika. Suosittelen lämpimästi!”.
