Business Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching is a powerful tool for clarifying Your goals and the steps to get there. I am a trained and experienced Certified Business Coach and I offer Business Coaching one-on-one, for groups and for teams, in place or remotely e.g. by Teams. I offer also Crisis Coaching for Executive and Management Teams. My extensive Executive and Board Director background is valuable in supporting Your journey towards the goals. 

Business Coaching sessions for a team or group of leaders or managers will also develop leadership and will improve team’s interaction skills, information flow, trust, motivation and co-operation, thereby improving results.

The coaching of an individual, group or team usually consists of 4-7 (or more, if you wish) 1-1,5hour sessions once or twice per month with valuable information and effective discussion on matters that are most important to the participants at their work. Valuable development takes place also in between the sessions. I always have a set goal agreed with the corporation and the individual, team or group. The goals can relate e.g. to the present or changing work role, time management, leadership skills development or career development. On executive level the goal can also be developing and/or implementing the corporate strategy or change management needed e.g. in case of an acquisition or listing.

With teams or groups, You can combine the coaching with a 1-2 day off-site retreat as a kick off and/or closing. You can also have just the retreat combined with a few longer days on coaching at a location wished by You. This is perfect when combined with the team’s longer strategy meetings.  I have great suggestions for venues e.g. in the Southern France, Northern Lapland or near Helsinki.

Crisis coaching answers efficiently to the acute needs to solve issues in the team. Sometimes it takes only one session with the members in question to find the common understanding on reasons behind the issues and the ways to move forward with clear action steps.  

One important criteria is positive chemistry between the Client and the Coach. For this reason we’ll always discuss first free of charge on the process and the wished goals and You’ll decide only thereafter.

Business Coaching is a proven method that brings results efficiently.  By active listening, powerful questions and exercises (if wished) I help You to see the matters in a new light and reach the individual and team goals. The sessions follow the growing awareness of the Client and therefore the results of coaching are obtained not only in the short term for achieving a task but also in the long term.

You may wish to have my experience and expertise in use as a mentor for You or Your organization. I can help You in setting up a mentoring program for Your organization or be Your confidential partner to brainstorm about career moves or any issues or challenges You or Your team member faces at work. I have solid experience in doing both.

The mentoring would typically be for half a year or a year but can always be terminated earlier. Mentoring can be also combined with a Coaching program so that during the 4-7 coaching sessions, when appropriate and helpful to You, I will give You feedback and advice as Your mentor. We can discuss in person, via phone or e.g. in Teams.

Let’s discuss how I can help You and Your business. 

“​I wish I had recorded our coaching sessions so that I could listen again the ideas and inspiration that Päivi was able to get out of me. Our discussions were very encouraging for me and I just loved the moments when the key to the matter was found.”

Group Coaching, Workshops and Training

I am passionate about developing leadership to a level where both the company and its people are doing well. My coaching, workshops and training sessions are filled with positive energy and trust. They are said to be encouraging, practical and helpful.

All my services are tailored and delivered accordingly to the needs and wishes of the client. You can see examples of topics on the front page. They are held with strong presence and attention, active discussion on the relevant topics to the participants and with no embarrassing and frustrating plays and games. I trust in the motivation and professionalism of Your team. Therefore, their valuable time is spent on sharing best practices, lessons learned and practical advice on moving forward. The spirit of the sessions is kept positive and constructive.

The workshops and training can take place at Your premises or at another venue chosen by You. I provide tailored workshops and training also in Lapland, easily accessible by plane in 1,5h from Helsinki. The refreshing nature and many fun and exciting activities during Your stay will help Your team to get distance from the daily tasks. You will be able to stop and think of your goals and best steps to get there. You’ll have fun and return to your daily work inspired and energized. I’ll choose the best accommodation and meeting venues for you and arrange also the outdoor and evening program, e.g. ski instructing, hiking, husky or snow mobile safaris, kayaking and much more. I work with the best local hotels, restaurants and activity companies. I am a I trained alpine and cross country ski instructor so I can be your coach also on your outdoor activities.

Example of a two-day workshop:

Day 1

Day starts after breakfast with skiing or other outdoor activity, following a tasty lunch. In the afternoon we have a workshop on effective communication in leadership and we’ll clarify the goals of the team.

Day 2

We continue the workshop on leadership development by discussing building team motivation and trust. We’ll conclude by wrapping up the workshop learnings and discussing the next steps for the team.

Let me know your needs and wishes, and the target group and we can plan together the topic, time and venue. You can book my leadership coaching and training also from Santa’s Hotel and Lapin Luontolomat in Saariselkä, Inari.

Guest Speaker

I love speaking about good leadership, how to hear and take into account the expectations of the employees, the customers, the public and your own needs. I’ve been speaking at company events and conferences for large audiences but also for smaller group events for leaders. With my over 25 years of experience in business I have many great and concrete examples and advice. I love to connect with my audience and speak not only to them but also with them and addressing the topics that are valid for them. My biggest reward is when I see the aha! moment and enthusiasm in the eyes of my listeners. I speak based on my own observations and conclusions. I gladly talk also about the coaching leadership, what it is and how it is done.

Contact me or my partner speakersforum and let me know  what type of event and theme you have in mind.

I Would Love to Hear from You Soon!
