I am Riitta Tihinen a Training Manager and all-around expert on leadership at HAUS. In addition to working within the public administration for 20 years, I have previous experience in being a researcher and working with competence development matters in two big international companies.

I believe that, first and foremost, a leader should try to understand how their employees think and feel and what actions those lead to on their part. Only after that can the leader affect the matters they are responsible for.


On my free time I like to bike, ski or walk, depending on the weather. My hobbies consist of practical things, which are a nice balance for work.
