Gaia Leadership is expanding internationally and we opened an office in Helsinki in February. Gaia Leadership Finland is building on the long-term relationship of our clients, and has also arranged a few events in May to create awareness of us in Finland. Gaia Leadership took part in the Leader and Personnel fair in Helsinki. Building on our core messages that everyone is a leader and combining the inner driving forces of people with organizational goals, we received a lot of interest and positive feedback. There is a huge demand for new viewpoints of leadership and leadership development also in Finland.
Gaia Leadership invited our collaboration partner Dr. Maria Nemeth to Finland to lead an evening seminar to our clients and coach-colleagues on “Would it be ok if life got easier”. The participants appreciated the inspiring, fun and useful session and the new tools they got for leading themselves.
