LONG

Agnieszka Bajer is a culture strategist, in-demand speaker, executive coach, facilitator and organisation development consultant. 

Agnieszka is a passionate believer in the transformative power of workplace cultures that simultaneously focus on bottom-line results and on making organisational life a forcing-bed for growth and development.

Her experience and research show that unleashing the full potential of people in a team or an organisation is possible; it simply requires a clear vision, a sound strategy and an unwavering commitment to bringing about the desired changes.

 In the past 20 years working as an organisation development consultant, executive coach and facilitator, she has been an advisor to numerous leaders and helped them design and implement interventions that resulted in strengthening or transforming their culture, developing leadership skills and inspiring people to engage and contribute more to exceptional business results.

Her work in the field of organisational culture and coaching led to co-authoring the book ‘Building & Sustaining a Coaching Culture” – a complete guide on how to embed coaching in an organisation’s DNA. 

Agnieszka is a “modern nomad”: she moves around a lot and divides her time between a number of beautiful places in Europe. In her daily life, she finds happiness in spending time with friends, reading, traveling, learning the Argentinian tango, studying Eastern philosophy, and exploring ways to bring more mindfulness into her life.
