Why work with me? – Olari Ilison

My main role as a manager is to enable the team – to find interesting tasks to fulfil, open doors to the management or stakeholders, help the individuals to grow, let the experts to take and stand for their decisions. I believe that every person is good at something, finding the best usage of individual skills and personalities in a team setting is what I care about.

I'm eager to try out new ways of working, as well as learn from my own and other's mistakes. In problem solving I choose to be pragmatic and open. Being honest and caring is what I believe to be the right approach in communication and feedback giving.

Despite the years of work in Sweden, I sometimes fail to put the flowers to the message. I also need to learn how to use fika at work.
