Who am I?
Hi, I’m Mari Järvinen, a psychologist (MSc) specialized in work & organizational psychology. I'm originally from Finland but now based in Amsterdam, working wherever work takes me. I have worked as a consultant, occupational health psychologist, work counselor, process consultant, researcher, and many other things, for many types of organizations. I am also a Certified Scrum Master.
During the past few years, I have worked with, for, and among startups in many different fields, but especially in the world of IT. I have realized that there is a lot organizational psychology can do for startups, because so much of what make or break a startup actually has to do more with the team itself than with the business itself. I want to help startups build a solid foundation for the future, so that internal conflicts have less of a chance of sinking the ship.
I am passionate about creating workshops that are full of lively discussion, debate and learning. No endless PowerPoint shows, I promise!
My working languages are Finnish, Swedish and English.
