She was perhaps the first person in the world to link the terms “Agile” and “HR”. Now it’s becoming clear that Pia-Maria Thorén is the pioneer of a fast-growing global movement – Agile People.

Pia-Maria Thorén is a true multi-talent – she describes herself as a person in the middle of HR, IT, finance, and management.

As Inspiration Director for her company, Pia-Maria is a key influencer in Agile HR, Leadership and Motivation, a popular guest at conferences, and participates in numerous interviews on podcasts and blogs. In a personal, informal way – Scandinavian style – she makes it very clear that leadership needs to change.

She talks about a new leadership role, The Agile People Coach – An alternative career for HR and Managers in the Future of Work. The world is getting more complex, and there are few competitive advantages still remaining for companies who want to survive and flourish. It requires a totally different Leadership style that let people make mistakes and learn from them. It requires different principles for HR and cross-functional business teams on all levels. The old structures with top-down hierarchies, annual budgets linked to fixed performance targets and rewards will not support the speed and personal motivation that needs to permeate future workplaces.
