About me

I can help you move.

Who, me?

Curious. Analytic. Quick when I need to. Hard working and hard thinking. Educated, but not trapped in patterns. Passionate about the concept of learning and about the brain. Limits, norms and rules are respectfully bendable up to a point, in my opinion. There is a small nerd living inside me, it’s the detail-focused engineer peeking out occasionally. Energetic with sharp focus. Not serious about myself, but serious and intensive in what I do, and I expect it from my collaborators, too. Fun and sometimes witty. I played European handball for most of my life on national level. We lost. We won. After injuries we bounced back. 10 years of corporate experience, 8 years of entrepreneurial / consulting experience with lovely clients.

My goal is to be a small (and powerful) part of  the community creating next generation modern workplaces.

I co-founded Peoplegeeks Ltd Oy in 2016, and have been working with my dream job ever since. We do all the stuff that a modern company should be doing. We’re talking analytics, people data, agile, lean, change & transformations in a brain friendly and inviting way. We are talking about modern people and management technology. We are helping managers, executives and board members get their heads around what “digitalisation” actually means between your ears and in your heart. I.e. as people’s needs, fears, hopes, opportunities, behaviour and actions.

What for?

Have you worked with  people who give you energy? Who create atmospheres where you achieve together? I am a multiplier of energy, some say. There is so much latent potential locked away in people, in groups and in organizations. I believe people can and want to perform and do well, simultaneously caring of their overall well-being, if the system around them allows them to.

The world is finally in real paradigm change. Top-down becomes co-creation, crowd sourcing, and transparency. The linear world, command-control behavior is turning into handling of complexity, agile, lean and self-organizing teams. Work/life balance becomes just balance. Data displaces guessing, and supports intuition. Old school leadership theories are vanished and hard core science about our brain and validated new methods arrive. People feel better, work smarter and become more creative/productive/focused – whatever is necessary in their specific situation. I can navigate both “old school” and “new school”. I speak “engineer”, “manager” and “HR”.

I can help in this transition. I can help you move, adjust and move again.

How do I work?

Depends on you, your organization and your desired outcome. I have a set of methods, tools, facilitation techniques, material, facts, games, network partners, connections and ideas. I suggest we go by a lean approach, with not thinking we know  or are able to plan everything up front. By validating our guesses we can adjust along the way, creating something really valuable and constantly walking in a valuable direction (or failing small, fast and cheap).

 

I work with my clients, and through agile-lean methodologies.
