Certified Neemo™ Coaches deliver powerful and engaging team coaching

Photography brings magic to team coaching and facilitation

We dream and remember things in pictures, and we all know how to take pictures. In fact, we share billions of photos every day. Pictures affect our emotions, and our personal inner picture influences our behavior toward each other. Neemo™ takes inspiration from this.

Whether your clients are in the middle of defining leadership principles, creating the core values and culture of their organization, or implementing effective change, as Neemo™ Coach you can help your clients and their remote and cross-functional teams. Harnessing pictures and creativity is an effective team coaching and facilitation method for learning empathy skills or developing organizations. In Neemo™ Method workshops your clients will save time and money. Let your clients produce creative ideas and nurture an appealing organizational culture!

We believe that purpose and meaningfulness belong to everyone. As a Neemo™ Coach you will inspire and engage your clients to hone their creativity, empathy and leadership skills to reach their full potential.

100% engagement

“Harnessing photographs really helps development processes. I have used many other methods before, but none of them are as creative as Neemo™. Realization – the solution, or a common understanding – comes almost as a surprise when we talk about the photographs. Neemo™ Art is so engaging that I don’t need to tell participants to focus on the subject because they are so fascinated by it. I’ve had 100% engagement – which is a huge advantage for me as a coach!”

Merja Vehviläinen, Neemo™ Coach

Creativity belongs to us all

We use art to unlock hidden potential in people. We know that everyone is at their best when using their creativity to explore new perspectives. We believe that curiosity and empathy create an inclusive environment where diversity can flourish.

And it all starts with you and a picture!

Minnariikka Rajala

Neemo™ Coach in training
Every human being and organization has a lot of energy and hidden opportunities. In order to be sensitive and to interact effectively with each other and with our environment, we need to hone our ability to listen. The desire to understand the ideas of another creates new understanding and opens pathways to renewal, genuine context, cooperation and trust. Through building trust, courage increases and with it come new perspectives on how things can be handled. We need space for creativity, renewal and learning. The diversity and complexity of the issues we face train us to let go of simple solutions. In this way, we are more vigilant for our customers, our environment and each other. All this will ensure success.
