“In the sales team leader training we addressed management and leadership changes from solution selling perspective. The training got us to unify our understanding of customer care and solution selling in a way that the new thinking is visible in the whole organisation. We have come back to the training themes often in the discussions between area- and sales leaders. The training elements are visible in the everyday management and leadership. For example area- and sales leaders now aim braver to ambitious results with the means of solution selling.”

”We started in a situation, where we had decided to invest in even more market oriented and customer focused way of working. As a consequence of this decision a new Business Line Manager-role was established at Suunto to drive business development. With group coaching we wanted, not only to clarify the new role but also to internalise new tools for business development, people leadership and how to influence widely. The development program was diverse and additionally to group coaching included benchmark visits as well as project- and reading assignments. During the year long coaching the team formed a great spirit of supporting each other, that Nonna actively created. In my opinion the participants got new ideas and especially self-confidence in leadership during this program. One completely new product, now succesfully on the market, was created during this program as one of the projects. I recommend Nonna to individuals and teams, who want to take accountability of business development and further develop own leadership.”

“About 15 months ago we formed the Leadership Team and we started the leadership coaching journey together that has truly changed our thinking and united us. Even though a couple of persons joined the team along the way we have been able to form a great level of trust and collaboration within the team. Nonna has been true partner for us all during that journey. She has given mentoring and coaching and really challenged us. We are thankful for her support. I feel now that we have a strong team that will achieve amazing results in the future. We now have the right leadership mindset and toolset to nurture the growth of our people!
