"Barbro has been involved in a development program that was produced by Palmu/Solita and intended for their clients. The listed company has a leadership development program that involves hundreds of managers from all over the organization. Barbro has played a key role in coaching several teams during 2019. From Palmu's point of view, the cooperation has been excellent. Barbro is a strong leadership professional and a skilled coach as well as extremely flexible and dedicated in her work. The most important measure of success, however, is the direct gratitude from individual leaders that has poured at Barbro during the program."

"Barbro has a professional ability to expose people in a positive way. With existential coaching techniques, I went deep inside myself to see the light. In addition to material and old habits, there is so much positive in life. I've got a sharper focus, more energy and a deeper awareness of what is essential. We only live once, so we should enjoy every day. Humble thanks for the coaching."
