Hey, I'm Pia...

Team leader, UX Designer, Career Coach

As a neurodivergent person, I’ve learned very early on that I see and experience the world differently from my neurotypical friends. At the time I didn’t see it as a gift but rather a curse that I had to deal with and like every other person with ADHD, I’ve created strategies to live and work in a neurotypical world and mastered the art of problem-solving.

Today I use this power in my day-to-day work and am on a mission to empower others to create a career in which they’ll thrive and not just survive.

Building and developing a team

Team leader

Teamwork and collaboration / Team purpose / Career vision / Goal setting / DISC profiling / Values & Beliefs / Strengths / Asking and receiving feedback / Team building and events

Building a team is easy but building a high-performing team is an art form.

My vision for my team is to empower every individual to find their strengths and use them to their fullest – to shine like the brightest stars in the sky. At the same time, I envision a team where people help each other recognize their blind spots and empower each other to create opportunities for personal and professional growth.

I believe in teamwork, kind and honest communication, and the importance of psychological safety.

I fell in love with user experience and design before I even knew what it was…

By now I have experience in leading every stage of the design process from discovery to delivery. My passion lies in the discovery of the true problem and my superpower is ideation. I’ll work with pixels but am happier to hand over the visual design to an artistic Visual designer.

The power of design for me lies in finding the balance between pushing the edge of reality and staying pragmatic.

Thriving vs surviving

Career Coach

It takes courage and action not just to survive at work but truly thrive there.

As a teacher by study, I was craving to work with passionate people who were ready to push the boundaries and reach higher. It felt as if it was only a matter of time before I started working first as a Design mentor and later as a Career coach specialising in Career changers.

Empower people to thrive at work and your business will thrive with them.

I am one of those “new age” people that for some reason don’t like phones. Write me a message, meet me for a coffee, or schedule a Zoom call and I’ll be happy to chat.
