We help individuals, organisations and communities prosper – to shine bright like diamonds.

We work with leaders hungry for growth.

We believe that strong companies have shaped these three areas into brilliant diamonds: 

  • A meaningful purpose and a clear and compelling vision
  • Authentic leadership, values and corporate culture that drive the team effort for success
  • Engaging communications, marketing, sales and customer relations.


We also believe that it all starts with you. If you want things to change, you need to change.

FIND FOCUS

It all starts with you. When you improve your own clarity, direction and abilities, you have better tools to lead others with. A clear purpose and focus and a compelling vision help you inspire and lead others.

develop leadership

As we take time together to explore your thinking and actions, we work to broaden your perspective on the world, to alter your thinking and to expand your repertoire of behaviour. Personal growth leads to organisational growth.

engage with influence

Impacting others is what changes the world. And that’s what it’s all about in leadership and communications, branding and marketing, public speaking, sales, customer relationships, and in life in general.

It all starts with you.

We serve as speakers, coaches, mentors, consultants, advisors, board members or a combination of these, but our approach always has elements of coaching as we believe growth is achieved from within. In consulting, the knowledge and answers are with the consultant, whereas in coaching the wisdom lies within the client. In mentoring, a more experienced expert on the topic at hand shares knowledge with the client. In coaching we work together to guide your growth. Coaching is powerful as a methodology on its own or in combination with other approaches.

We can be there for you in many ways.

A MIRROR FOR YOU

that observes, listens, and reflects observations back to you to help you understand your leadership and communication style, environment and impact on others. Being a leader doesn't have to be a lonely ride.

A CREATIVE GUIDE

helping you explore and invent new behaviours to enable you to develop as a leader. We can work together to interpret different kinds of dynamics within your team or organisation and to plan how to lead in those settings.

A THOUGHT PARTNER

enabling you to discover insights and strategies by discussing ideas, options and opinions. We can serve even as a practice partner who can role-play with you to practice tough situations or new behaviours.

Our team.

We have over three decades of experience to serve you with.

How others view us.

Kimmo has a sharp mind and an exceptional ability to dig deep into to the most essential issues of your growth strategy. He has a big heart, strong dedication and always diplomatic approach to serve you with passion – this is how he creates trust and credibility.
Katri can piece together all the essentials with incredible speed. She asks great questions that have helped me eliminate many of my limiting beliefs. She is such an inspiring and encouraging professional with whom it is always a pleasure to meet!
Iida Kujanpää
Founder & CEO
Kimmo gets my highest recommendation as a coach and mentor. His unique ability to recognise, understand, and explain different business dynamics – and most importantly, guide you to get your own answers – has helped me to understand how to be a better leader.
Katri has the ability to push me to develop without it feeling like pushing at all. She has helped me in very concrete ways, e.g. I have found entirely new ways to approach challenges, learned to dream, to find focus and to set clear goals. She coaches from the heart with a sincere interest in my development.
Anna Ojapalo
Entrepreneur
I started in my coaching process with Kimmo with an open mind and not knowing what to expect. I quickly started to find clarity in many of my business and personal matters. The many pieces of my puzzle started to make sense and it was actually quite an amazing experience of self-discovery.
Tommi Harju
CEO
There have been some big changes in life and business. In my discussions with Kimmo I have found reassurance that I’m on the right path and I have clarified my direction and focus in these turbulent times. Our meetings have provided me insight and realisations that will serve me for a long time in the future.
