    “This offsite was a really great opportunity to focus on achieving top performance as a team. We came away with a manageable set of actions and personal commitments that I feel motivated to follow through on and ensure are delivered.”

  • Jane Davison, Head of Resourcing, Barclays Bank

    “The exercise on how different people think really opened my eyes about some challenging work relationships. The course was informative, helpful and relevant. It raises awareness of different personality styles and increased my own self-awareness.”

  • Raj Panasar, Partner, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton

    “I valued Katinka’s input tremendously. She has a canny knack of translating behaviour into productivity, which I found very powerful. Fundamentally, Katinka cared about the objectives and the process, and when someone is working with you who cares as much as she does, it has a significantly positive impact on the programme. She successfully raised self-awareness levels among partners and associates without any trace of judgement. I highly recommend her”

  • Peder Anderlind, Head of Investment Banking Training and Development, Credit Suisse

    “I was very impressed with the way Katinka translated her organizational effectiveness experience into commercial, relevant and practical solutions for us. She showed great judgment when interacting across all levels of the firm and was able to build solid relationships over a relatively short time frame. I very much look forward to working with Katinka again”

  • Nick Smith, Managing Director, Management Consulting, Accenture

    “I have experienced a range of executive coaches and Katinka brings a unique approach and perspective to the discipline. More than just demonstrating her empathy and commercial experience, we were able to properly assess what mattered to me, how to respond to the choices presented and how to create outcomes with greater certainty which benefitted both my organisation and me. The experience was enlightening and I have carried both the learning’s and some of the techniques forward with me”

  • Stuart Martin, Partner, Dechert LLP

    “Thank you for the workshop. I thought it was terrific in terms of content, interest, relevance and presentation – well done!”

  • Mikael Ståhl, Partner, Vinge

    “This was better than similar seminars. Katinka understood our business and the relationship with our clients well. I found the group discussions valuable, which Katinka led as an excellent moderator”

  • Catherine Ablott, Global Head of Market Data Services, Deutsche Bank

    “I enjoyed working with Katinka on several people development initiatives. We worked together on a Talent Survey for the group at the time and setting up Employee and Manager forums to give staff the opportunity to voice their opinions on what could be done to improve people development. These sessions were lively and engaging and produced a great deal of useful information that was then used by management to develop our people development strategy.”

  • Hannah Gröndahl, Attorney, BBRT Partners

    “What impressed me the most was that Katinka had really done her homework on our industry – who we are, who are competition is, and who are clients are. So her advice and helpful suggestions were actually very relevant – and had the extra bonus of sometimes being just “different” enough to get us conservative lawyers to consider another perspective, to debate and to analyse ideas that have worked well in other analogous industries. Katinka is also very good at taking what people say and re-positioning it it such a way that it drive the discussion and debate forward. I think all of us came away re-charged and inspired.”

katinkaNever before have we had to develop our inner awareness and outer awareness at the same time at such intensity. Today’s organizations require of their people to perceive, process, synthesize and act on information from their environment, most often in novel ways, responding to unprecedented circumstances, far from being able to rely on habitual response patterns. As teams and individuals we have to create our own realities by creatively pursuing opportunities around us, while constantly adapting and calibrating our inner compass to sustain our existence in the midst of ever-changing circumstances.

Katinka Nordenskiöld facilitates leadership development programs that support strategic goals and accelerate business and personal development.
