About us
Our goal is to use coaching methods to help companies transform the way they approach leadership at scale.
To support strategy implementation. To enable people to nurture more self-understanding and agency. And to build a genuine understanding of the state of the organization through data from the source that actually matters - the people. Our vision is a world where leaders see a 10X return from investing in their people.
Our history
March 2016
Dima Syrotkin and Lauri Paloheimo founded Panda Training. Idea at the time: marketplace for corporate training.

Came to conlusion that the problem is not in finding trainers but in finding good trainers. Started providing evaluations of the training impact. Brought Jere Partanen on board.
March 2019
Our evaluations have shown that the problem isn't the training itself, but the application of the training. Started providing a micro-coaching service.
February 2020
Started working on scaling micro-coaching service with chatbot technology. Brought Miika Wilen, Tiago Roberti Sampaio and Teppo Hudsson on board.
