Co-Active Leadership Coaching
Are you looking for your way to be a leader?
To every role in life, we bring our unique talent and gifts. I will challenge you to be yourself to the fullest in all roles in life.
To achieve that we will use my learnings from the Co-Active Leadership model. We hold it as our northern star in addition to your personal development needs.
I use Barret Value Center’s Tools for Leaders to support your development journey.
Leadership Team Development
What is the vision for your leadership team as leaders?
We often tend to forget that leadership is a service. We fill in our calenders with management of processes and projects and forget the actual work as a leader. If you want to break that habit or redefine your leadership, this is for you.
I use the Co-Active Leadership Model as the basis of our work and Barret Value Centre’s Tools for Leaders to measure where you are as leaders and kick off the development journey.
Team And Organizational Development
What is the vision for your team?
A key to success is having cohesive and united teams working towards the same goals throughout the organization. Sounds simple but in practice is rather hard.
With the Skilled’s application and the tools, it's easier as it's all about making the groundwork well. All the basics; goals, structure, interplay, development culture and engagement need to be discussed and worked on together, followed and again developed, like partial motion machine, it never stops.
I use Susan Wheelan’s Integrated Model of Group Development as the basis of our work and use Skillnad’s Team Quality Survey to see where you are currently as a team and to kick-off your development journey.
I have been supporting Dingle in their journey in changing the way they lead the company; from more traditional way to self-managed direction. We have worked together with the basis of organisational development, self-management and supporting individuals and teams.
We have measured the development with Teambook Team Quality Survey, first in January 2019 and now in August 2019 and the results give positive boost forward and point out clear development tasks. My role has been advising/consulting, facilitating workshops and coaching the teams and individuals.
Leadership Team Coaching
With MPY, I have worked with their leadership team since January 2019. We started off with Barret’s Small Group Assessment to understand the current state of they leadership team dynamics.
Based on the results, we started working towards more cohesive team. We decided to conduct Barret’s Leadership Value Assessments (360) for all team members to kick off their personal development.
My role at MPY has been to coach the leaders in their development, facilitating workshops and support the CEO in developing the leadership team.
"Our management team was non-uniform post merger. With Marika's mentoring and coaching both on the team level and with the individuals, we were able to unify the leadership team, resulting in the company to regain its lost mojo. Barrett's value based leadership system is a very powerful tool for transforming leadership in any company, especially when such a gifted, talented and heartfelt coach as Marika is on the helm. I would recommend her for any company or leader, who wants to step on the journey of value based leadership."

For Hill Audit I planned and executed a five month leadership coaching program for two new members of the leadership team. We dived into the topics of who they are as leaders, what is their impact, how to grow and develop as leader from their individual needs etc. We used Barret’s Individual Values Assessment in supporting the process and understanding the values that are important for them and how they are aligned with their work and life.
“What was most important for me in this process was understanding better where I am now with my growth through Barret’s Seven Levels of Consciousness Model, how I can impact on others by paying attention to listening, deepening my learning on my values and how to support feedback culture. I am very satisfied with Marika as a Coach and how she implemented the program. “
For the whole Hill Audit team, I planned and conducted “Taming The Time” workshop on wellbeing and how they can individually, and, as a team, take care of and support each others' wellbeing.
“Todella hyödyllinen aihe ja helppo toteuttaa keskustelut tällaisessa pienemmässä työyhteisössä. Valmentaja johti hyvin keskustelua ja piti jokaisen vastausta arvokkaana.”
“Mielestäni valmennus oli sisällöltään erittäin hyvä ja pidin Marikan rennosta valmennustyylistä. Positiivista oli, että valmennuksen sisältö oli mitoitettu juuri oikein käytettävissä olevaan aikaan (eli ei liikaa asiaa lyhyessä ajassa).”
“Hyvä innostava valmentaja ja aihekokonaisuus”
I have done pro bono coaching for REDI School employees since 2018. I love my work and want to pay it forward. REDI School is a non profit organization teaching technology to break down barriers and connecting the digital leaders of tomorrow in Munich, Berlin, Denmark and online.
“I was surprised that I achieved a lot of goals I set for myself this year. I learned that it's ok to mess up, and things needs a lot of time to be mastered, and that it's never too late to master anything in life. I am more self confident, self -controlled and I love myself more. Once I started doing things that I love, everything became more relaxing and I was more concentrated, it's like feeling reconciled with myself made things successfully contagious in all aspects of life. “
