“I have a deep-rooted belief in people’s inherited potential to take ownership, grow and flourish in their jobs.”

When I left Tieto in December 2014, I had worked 20 years in Business Executive, Managing Director and Head of Business Development roles at large international IT service companies. With my great people and teams, I successfully executed transformations for businesses having hundreds of employees and contractors.

I was lucky to work in great companies already in the beginning of my career. In my eyes, their greatness was in keeping the employees in center, letting everyone take responsibility for their part and giving fantastic support when there was need for it. Since then, I have had a deep-rooted belief in people’s inherited potential to take ownership, grow and flourish in their jobs. Later, in my executive leader roles, I have constantly strived for good leadership. For me courage, respect, openness and trust are significant leadership qualities.

As a consultant, I am curious to learn your unique situation. I will be passionate about contributing in your journey of developing better leaders and better leadership. My areas of expertise are leader and management team development, with link to strategy and structure when there is need for that. I am very practically minded person. The opportunity to see daily positive impact of your leaders’ behavior and actions would be my great joy.
