Johtajakin on vain ihminen

“Jokainen huippujohtaja tarvitsee itselleen valmentajan”, sanoi eräs huippujohtaja käydessämme power walkilla. Nämä power walkit ovat yleensä noin puolestatoista tunnista kahteen tuntiin kestäviä kävelylenkkejä, joiden…

Ajanhallinnan elokuu jatkuu! Olet nyt (eikö vaan?) syynännyt ajankäyttöäsi, teroittanut tavoitettasi ja pohtinut tapoja, joilla voisit saada ajastasi enemmän irti. Tiedät, mitä tulee seuraavaksi: on ryhdyttävä hommiin. Muutettava rutiinia ja tehtävä tilaa uudelle. Päivitettävä arjen autopilottiasetukset.

Se mitä ruokit kasvaa. Se mitä työstät edistyy. Ja vain se mitä rakennat voi valmistua. Joten pidä huolta siitä, että otat aikaa niille kaikkein tärkeimmille asioille.

Mutta aloittaminen. Toimeen tarttuminen. Huoh. Kuin nenään asti ulottuva kynnys.

Miten vaikeaa se voi OIKEASTI olla?

Herätä aikaisemmin? Rakentaa uusi toimintamalli? Työstää uutta ideaa? Ryhtyä edistämään sitä jotain, jota olet hyväillyt mielessäsi jo kuukausia.

Loppujen lopuksi ryhtyminenhän ei ole juttu eikä mitään. Aloittaa voi mistä vain: listasta, luonnoksesta, nimestä, you name it.

Aloittaminen tarkoittaa työtä. On kohdattava haasteita ja todennäköisesti tunnettava olonsa ensin nöyräksi aloittelijaksi ja sitten hetkellisesti täysin riittämättömäksi. Tämä on se vaihe prosessia, jossa syöt triplasuklaakermatoffeepiirakkajäätelöä suoraan purkista verkkareissa ja revit hiuksiasi (vaihe 4, ks. kuva). Täytyy suunnitella, selvittää, delegoida, tuottaa, viimeistellä, testata. Ja se tuntuu usein haastavalta.

Toisaalta mikään ei muutu, jos mikään ei muutu. Ja kaiken sen ajan ja energian, jonka käytät asian pohtimiseen ja “voi kunpa voisin”-haaveilemiseen, voisit kanavoida itse asiaan.

Sitä paitsi harva katuu asioita joihin on ryhtynyt, mutta moni tekemättömäksi jääneitä asioita.

Viikon tehtävä: Ala rakentaa uutta rutiinia. Mieti, miten voit paremmin käyttää aikaasi ja ala toteuttaa uutta suunnitelmaa. Sitoudu muutokseen. Ole tietoinen aikasyöpöistäsi ja keksi keino taltuttaa ne. Aloita saman tien.

Jos aloitat, voit onnistua. Aloittamatta onnistumisprosenttisi on 0.

Say yes and leave your contact information.

I am a devoted business identity and leadership coach, working as an expert in the rewarding field of personal transformation. It is my passion to help people embrace change and become more present in their lives and their work. For close to 30 years I have gathered extensive knowledge in the media sector, business world and top-level management. I currently work as a coach and instructor for many different companies, universities, schools and associations – in Finnish, Swedish and English.

I have 20 years of management experience in a variety of businesses and organisations. Time and again I come across the same dilemma: Managers know their company, but not themselves. Many are not aware of their individual strengths and weaknesses as leaders of people. Together with my partner Johanna Rosnell-Varjo, we have developed a path towards personal and professional self-development, used successfully by over 1,000 businesses leaders in Finland and abroad.

My career started with work as a reporter, contributing stories to all of Finland’s top publications. I then made my way into broadcast journalism, where I helped to launch a flagship afternoon show and later become a founding member of a new commercial television channel, as head producer of domestic programming. During this time, I was responsible for producing 240 live broadcasts and carrying out liaison work with Much Music in Canada, where I also led several training sessions. Following this, I worked for the advertising company Taivas and the US digital content producer Razorfish.

I hold a Master’s degree in education and qualifications as a journalist and audio-visual producer. I am currently writing my PhD on management identity and how coaching can have an effect on leaders and their conflict resolution skills.

At the end of the day, my most important coaching role is my work as a mother. I have a 10-year-old daughter and act as deputy mom to my husband’s three children. My family is my refuge and foundation, and they test my leadership skills daily – for which I am infinitely grateful.

I am a marketing and communications professional with a comprehensive understanding of both tradition and digital media and a successful background in steering major marketing campaigns across several business sectors. I am passionate about meeting targets – or even surpassing them – and I enjoy discovering the synergy necessary to create quick and effective processes that provide added value for our customers. For me, 1 + 1 is always more than 2.

My expertise lies in digital marketing and a deeper understanding of unique customer paths. My recent studies to become a licensed vocational teacher have led me to do extensive research into self-management, work attitudes and time management models. I could teach and talk about this last topic in particular for hours. It is the ultimate question: How do we use the precious time that is given to us?
