I admire her professionalism and how she supported me to find answers from myself for the questions. Her coaching was extremely effective and professional. I would gladly recommend her as a coach." – Senior Leader, Tapio Aaltonen, Ministry of Internal Affairs.

"I needed support and guidance in order to stop and take some distance in order to analyze a complex work situation and to lead myself forward in a constructive and dynamic way. The most valuable thing about this coaching was that it enabled me to encounter things,situations and emotions and to see them for what they are, to become conscious of my own thoughts, perceptions and attitudes. As long as one is not aware of these things it is impossible to start acting, solving problems and making the change happen. In a safe and understanding environment created by Sari and the connection that was created between us it was "easy" to take a new, dynamic approach to things that I had been stuck with for a long time. So thank you Sari!" – Senior Executive, Company

“The individual coaching process with Sari was the best leadership development program I have ever during my long international career as a senior executive attended. Sari coached me to find totally new sides of myself and to develop my models of thinking and behaving.
