I have had the privilege to work with amazing clients and I can honestly say that I have learned a lot from them. Here are some of the things they say about me:
TESTIMONIALS IN ENGLISH
“Hiring Netta gave a clear structure to the process and with her help, I was able to define the next steps and to even get a whole new business idea, that I am now putting into practice.”
Netta’s coaching showed me in a concrete way, how empowering a good coach can be and how the right questions and tasks really help in getting ahead in life. During my career change and path-seeking, I had been reading a ton of self-help literature and had a difficulty of getting my thoughts in some order. Hiring Netta gave a clear structure to the process and with Netta’s help, I was able to define the next steps and to even get a whole new business idea, that I am now putting into practice.
As a person and a coach, Netta is very warm and easy to talk to. She has an enormous amount of knowledge as well in business as in coaching. Netta has a structured and yet calm way to run the sessions that work well through Skype and in person. I’m happy to recommend Netta’s coaching for anyone pondering important things in life and wanting to success. For me, it was one of the best choices I’ve made!

"NETTA encouraged me to face my fears and take concrete actions to achieve my big dream."
Before starting my coaching program with Netta, I was afraid to change my career path, and my new business was just a bunch of ideas in my head. Netta was a great support in the process of developing my business project. Thanks to her guidance I'm about to launch my website and start my own business! By asking me powerful questions, she encouraged me to face my fears and take concrete actions to achieve my big dream. I would recommend Netta to anyone who is looking to start a new business or make a positive change in their life.

"Netta has a winning combination, being structured, yet flexible in her approach."
Throughout the 10 sessions I spent with Netta, I refocused my life and priorities. As a coach, she is very intuitive and can navigate vastly different subjects with ease.
She has a winning combination, being structured, yet flexible in her approach. Recognizing when and how to spend more time on certain topics is the most valuable insight in a coach. Establishing trust is fast and natural, as Netta is warm and non-judgmental. Fulfill your potential with her creative and methodical guidance!

"Netta gave me the tools and techniques to carry on with my personal development process by myself."
Before the sessions started, I didn't really know what to expect. I hadn't tried or actually even considered coaching before, but now when I was given a chance to try it pretty easily, I thought let's do it. After all, I had been recently puzzling with a couple of career-related questions that coaching might possibly help solving. At least there was nothing to lose. And actually when I started thinking about my life more comprehensively, I realized I might could make some small changes here and there in other areas of life as well. Maybe coaching would, in a positive way, help push myself towards some new and healthy habits.
After 6 sessions (or even earlier but my coaching period included 6 sessions) I had to admit that coaching must be one of the most valuable actions I've ever decided to take.
I did manage to change my habits (e.g. time management in regards to my job, which was reflected in other areas of life as well). Moreover, I did, at least kind of, realise what I need to do with my career questions (it will be a longer process but I'm already much more satisfied and working more with the things I love to do professionally). I also did manage to do many other small but concrete actions along the coaching process that have guided my towards a better and happier life.
However, the most valuable learnings or takeaways from Netta's coaching sessions for me were the skills of self-reflection - a skill I will carry with me and benefit from for the rest of my life. (That's worth much more than the money you pay for coaching!) Coaching helped me to see myself better; including my actions, behaviours, decisions, habits, wants and desires etc. It helped me develop a skill of being more responsive/sensitive in everyday situations, and thanks to that, I'm now able to make more often, actually every day, decisions and take actions that are guiding me towards doing more of the things I really like doing and thus contributing to my level of happiness. I'm acknowledging my personal/guiding values better now, and thanks to coaching I'm able to spend more time in activities (even at work) that are in line with my personal values. What's great, is the fact that coaching didn't "end" after the coaching period with the coach ended. Netta gave me the tools and techniques to carry on with my personal development process by myself.
Learning a skill like that or achieving more tangible goals could've been more difficult with some other coach. Netta encouraged and supported me to take concrete actions in my everyday life (e.g. nice little homeworks that we came up with for every session). She helped me recognise some of the challenges that I was facing, and found a way for us to approach those challenges. She is good in giving you confidence and courage for taking the next steps in your process. As a person, Netta is very open, approachable and human-centric, which is a perfect fit for a role of a coach, but her business background also helped in our coaching process, as she was more capable of identifying with my situation especially in work-related issues.
For me, one of the benefits of coaching was also that I became better in speaking aloud about myself and my feelings. That's something where many Finnish guys might have some room for improvement :)
Coaching was a really valuable, sort of an awakening experience that I would truly recommend to anyone.

"Netta showed me a structural method than enhanced my intuitive & experience-based approach to doing business. "
I am grateful to Netta for the chance to improve my entrepreneurial abilities, by means of coaching. I've been entrepreneur during almost whole business life (and I am 60 years old now), but any previous training I took was mostly about some technical staff (I work in digital printing; informational logistics of personalized data paper documents production). And Netta's coaching course (8 sessions I guess) showed me a structural method than enhanced my intuitive & experience-based approach to doing business.
Thanks to Netta's analytical questions/tasks I could evaluate different sides and features of myself - to lead me to more successful and enjoyable life, not only from business perspective, but to social and even friends&family progress. We discussed how my habits, strength & weaknesses could be assessed and better used. Thanks to Netta's very logical and friendly discussions I could better imagine how to develop my new startup's business ideas / new business models, that might be so disruptive that I felt a strong need to start changing myself in order to implement them. Even my physical state improved thanks Netta's co-creation of tasks for me in discussions: we elaborated my needs and features together :-)
I couldn't imagine before, that profoundly professional - like service designing - developments are manageable via non-technological assistance. Good luck, Netta!

"I can warmly recommend Netta for anyone ready to start working for their goals. "
Coaching was a very powerful vessel for me to reach my goals. The regular sessions I was having with Netta provided a structured way to revisit my goals when I was having a period of my life with a lot of change and when it wasn't that clear what to focus on. For me personally just being accountable for someone and scheduling a regular time slot to think about my goals had a huge impact. However, doing it with a professional coach who followed a clear, structured methodology and asked the right questions gave 10 x impact to the sessions. I can warmly recommend Netta for anyone ready to start working for their goals. She will be an asset no matter how unstructured the goal or path forward will be :)

“Netta helped me find out what my passion is and how to follow it. “
When I first met Netta I had so many doubts and questions about my professional life and what to do in the future. She helped me find out what my passion is and how to follow it, but not only that, during our sessions she helped me create a short/mid and long term plan on how to get there.
It looked difficult in the beginning, but with the help of great questions and activities she made me find out that I already knew most of the answers, it was just a matter of approaching them in the correct way.
If you are (or want to be) an entrepreneur or you are just trying to figure out the future of your career or professional life I would really recommend coaching with Netta.

"Minulla on nyt selkeä kuva tulevien vuosien suunnitelmista.
Coachaus sai minut suunnittelemaan elämääni tarkemmin tärkeimpien arvojeni perusteella. Suunnitelmani ja tavoitteeni konkretisoituivat opintojen, perhe-elämän, yrittäjyyden sekä työelämän suhteen monipuolisten harjoitusten avulla ja aloin tavoitteellisesti ja konkreettisesti työskennellä niiden eteen.
Arjessa ja työelämässä päätöksentekoni nopeutui ja toimin nyt tehokkaammin ja tiedostavammin tavoitteideni eteen. Coachaukselle asettamani tavoitteeni toteutuivat ja minulla on nyt selkeä kuva tulevien vuosien suunnitelmista.

"Netta todella halusi, että saan yritykseni hyvin liikkeelle ja pääsen palvelemaan asiakkaitani mahdollisimman hyvin"
Olin miettinyt yrityksen perustamista jo pidempään. Valmennuksen aikana sain yritykseni perustettua ja ensimmäiset maksavat asiakkaatkin. Koin hyödylliseksi sen, että sain asetettua itselleni tavoitteita ja pohdittua oikeita vaihtoehtoja tavoitteiden saavuttamiseksi. Oli myös hyödyllistä, että kävimme aina läpi, mitä oli tapahtunut tavoitteiden saavuttamisen suhteen. Sain itseni siis toimimaan paremmin Netan valmennuksen avulla. Oikeita asioita oikealla tavalla.
Pidin myös siitä, että jokaisella kerralla oli oma teemansa, joka istui hyvin aina tilanteeseen sillä kohdalla. Netta osasi nähdä, ja toki myös kysymällä selvitti, että mitkä kokonaisuudet aloittavana yrittäjänä ovat minulle tärkeitä. Koen, että voin nyt paremmin toteuttaa omaa kutsumustani elämänsuuntavalmentajana Netan vetämän valmennuksen avulla, Minulla on esimerkiksi muodostunut hyviä rutiineja, olen saanut piirrettyä tiekarttan ja ymmärrän potentiaalisia asiakkaitani paremmin.
Netta on valmentajana läsnäoleva ja osaa kuunnella hyvin. Hän hallitsee ja ymmärtää mielestäni valmentamisen lähtökohdat ja käytännön erittäin hyvin. Minulla oli myös turvallinen olo käydä läpi asioita ja tavoitteitani yritykseni ja elämäni suhteen Netan kanssa. Koin myös, että Netta todella halusi, että saan yritykseni hyvin liikkeelle ja pääsen palvelemaan asiakkaitani mahdollisimman hyvin. Kiitokset Netalle siis erinomaisesta valmennuksesta, mikä minun oli ilo saada kokea.
Voin suositella Netan valmennusta kenelle tahansa joka on miettimässä aloittavana yrittäjänä asioita, joita hänen tulisi tehdä ja missä järjestyksessä. Netan valmennuksessa näihin asioihin saa selkoa ja näkee ne tärkeimmät asiat, jotka on hyvä tehdä.
