Bio - Pia Maria Thoren
I am the author of Agile People – A Radical Approach for HR and Managers (That Leads to Motivated Employees), and the founder of Agile People. I specialize in helping companies move towards a culture of increased agility through Agile HR, Agile leadership and Motivation. I have worked as a consultant with many of Sweden’s largest companies, helping them to implement HR processes and solutions, always spiced with an agile mindset. Being a People management consultant and devoted change agent with an enterprise perspective, my main focus is to contribute to creating organizations where people perform better and feel engaged. Agile leadership and agile frameworks are the best ways to create successful change, in my opinion. I am the founder of Agile People, which is a network and a conference with the purpose of spreading the agile mindset in organizations. My main drive is to see the movement from one state to another in a company, contributing by making that change successful both from a financial and human perspective. My vision is to create customer value and have fun at the same time!
Special focus areas: Agile People (Agile HR AND Agile Leadership), Agile Culture Journeys, Management 3.0, Performance development, Employee engagement & motivation (Reiss Motivation Profile), workshop facilitation, event moderation and professional speaking.
