Matti Hirvanen
Dialogue Tools Finland Oy

During my career of over 25 years, I have gained extensive experience in a coaching leadership style and developing organisations in various roles. For most of my life, I have worked outside Finland and learned to appreciate the strength that derives from diversity of cultures in organisations.

Personally, I have a coaching leadership style: I am goal-oriented, thorough and I see challenges as possibilities.

A coaching leader is someone who helps others recognize their own strengths. When necessary, good leaders must also be able to step out of their comfort zone.

I have a degree in engineering as well as an eMBA. I have also completed a training for board members. I believe that continuous self-development is a prerequisite for working as a coach. A degree in solution-focused brief therapy is my latest accomplishment, which I completed at Helsinki Psychotherapy Institute.
