This is me. Originally from Finland, now based in Amsterdam, I'm an organizational psychologist who has worked with people, teams, leaders and organizations for about 15 years. I can't say I've seen it all because I still keep getting surprised by the complexity of human interactions, but I know I can always come up with some good questions to help you find your next steps.
I am passionate about helping startups and scaleups grow in a sustainable way. In fact, working on these topics makes me have those "I can't believe I get paid for this!" moments.
All my services are based on science, high ethical standards and best practices. But you should also expect a relaxed, down-to-earth approach and an ability to switch gears and rethink things as needed.
I have worked with numerous startups and scaleups, from the first moments of founding the company to the last steps before an IPO and beyond. If I didn't list exactly what you were looking for on my services page, just let me know where you are on your journey and we'll take it from there!
