Testimonial 

I am very pleased to strongly recommend Barbara Malmstrom for the work she is doing in revealing hidden dynamics in Organizations and Systems. I was impressed by Barbara’s capabilities to connect the world of research and the one from business in addition to her impressive ethical skills.

Barbara believes trust is the foundation for a good and successful coaching relationship

To be fully present in the coaching session with an open heart and an open mind creates an environment where the “key” questions evolve.  Her coaching style is open and engaging.

Babara believes coaching allows you to enable individuals/groups to uncover their own strengths and directions.  She is Finnish but her mother tongue is Swedish.  She also has excellent English, with good German language skills.
