Would you like to get some time to think?

Are you working in a managerial position? Do you find yourself always ‘in the middle of something’, with many people and loads of things requiring your attention? Is there something in your work, in your team, or in your work-life balance that has been bothering you for a while, that really needed to be solved, but you’ve had no time to think about it, or you don’t know, how to solve it? If you are ready to make a change, you will benefit from coaching. Coaching offered by a professional coach will give you time to think, helps you in finding solutions to your challenges and making the change needed happen.

Working with people in executive and management positions and helping managers to succeed has been my passion over 20 years. I am a trained Business Coach holding twho international coaching certificates (Professional Certified Coach by International Coach Federation and Professional Certificate in Coaching by Henley Business School) and with strong background in management and leadership development. I am also a trained Coaching Supervisor (Coaching Supervision Academy, UK) helping professional coaches to reach their next level as a coach. I have a long and wide experience as a management and leadership trainer, coach, facilitator, HR specialist, manager and a management team member. I hold a MBA-degree from a highly esteemed and international Henley Business School and working closely with current Henley MBA students, combined with my long experience in management development gives me strong basis to understand the challenges people in management positions have.

For executives and managers I offer one-to-one coaching sessions face-to-face or virtually, in English and in Finnish. Coaching contracts are usually made for a period of 6-8 months, including 8-10 coaching sessions, each 1-1,5 hours. For professional coaches I offer Coaching Supervision, face-to-face or virtually.

Professional coaching is an exellent method to help managers and leaders to find solutions to their challenges. This is because coaching accelerates progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. It concentrates on where you are today and what you are willing to do to get where you want to be tomorrow. Coaching provides a transformative space to experience easier and accelerated growth to move towards goals.

According to research coaching brings many benefits: fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence. And, the list does not end there. Those who undertake coaching also can expect appreciable improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.
