KAJURA LIFE COACHING
I help people to move forward by taking them sideways.
As a professional life coach, my approach is to facilitate optimal progress through the transfer of knowledge and the acceptance of personal responsibility, rather than the massaging of egos. In other words, my primary focus is on also helping my clients get what they need, rather than just what they want. Hence, I'm not everyone's cup of tea! However, if you have the courage and you're serious about your personal growth, please read on.
I often utilise lateral thinking strategies to help my clients find new and sometimes very abstract and unexpected perspectives from which to view their environments and, most importantly, themselves. Then, via the formulation and execution of results-driven action plans, I help them to become empowered and better able to achieve more effective, harmonious and satisfying personal and professional lives.
Achieving greater self-awareness and real change in life is not always a comfortable process. In order to achieve extraordinary results, it's often necessary to forge new trails through rough and unfamiliar terrain, and that can be truly challenging. Further, there is no special secret formula to success, just that that you keep moving forward by taking action. I hope that I'll have the privilege of assisting you to reach your desired destination.

"Thanks to your coaching skills, to say nothing of our inspiring conversations, I have made many positive changes to my life. I am now having different conversations with the world around me and suddenly the everyday seems less banal. I am also enjoying working my way through the very useful books that you recommended. I have already sang your praises to my friends and colleagues and they asked me for your details, which I, of course, was happy to pass onto them."
Dr. Gareth Rice, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland
"Jyri is a true visionary who is not only able to create an appealing future vision, but can also create achievable steps on the path to the realisation of set goals. Jyri possesses excellent skills in building teams where true commitment from all the team members is required. However, being a visionary doesn't always mean goals will be achieved without understanding the realities of everyday life and how to support people in their work. In that respect, Jyri has shown good supervisory skills and has always stood by his team, even during adversity."
Anki Forsman, Wellbeing expert, Metso Corporation
“Jyri is an innovative and intelligent coach and teacher. Talking with him about any subject is very interesting and stimulating. He constantly challenges you to think more deeply, as well as guides you, one way or another, to search for and find the most effective solutions. To put it another way, Jyri doesn't necessarily choose the most comfortable path for his clients, or himself for that matter, but the best one, in order to achieve optimal understanding and personal development. He is very experienced and is able to apply his extensive knowledge in his coaching and teaching work, and that has been invaluable to me on my own path to becoming a qualified professional personal trainer. Thank you Jyri!"
Lotta Leiwo, Personal Trainer, Liikuntapalvelu ILO, Helsinki, Finland
