About me

Executive Coach, PCC; marikaraiski@gmail.com

Marshall Goldsmith, the most well-known executive coach in the US, has fittingly named his book “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There”. Indeed, what got you here won’t get you there. It is hard to find ways to move forwards on your own. With me, you can face your issues outright, approach them from new angles and this will make going forwards easier for you. Therefore, I invite you to expand your perspectives and participate as a manager in 1:1 coaching sessions or come to a team coaching session with your whole team. The coaching is effective as we use various coaching methodologies and a full toolbox of exercises.

The main aspects of coaching are focusing and targeting. This means that you believe in the existence of potential and the ability to achieve profitable growth through eliminating restrictions and obstacles. Coaching will help you grow as a manager and spearhead your team to become unified and more successful.

Executive coaches have become conventional globally, especially in the US, Canada and progressive European countries. Forty percent of Fortune 500 companies use their services. Give yourself and your team this opportunity to grow. 1:1 coaching and team coaching are the most personal and successful learning methods for managers.

I consider confidentiality to be of utmost importance in our cooperation and, as an ICF coach, I follow the ethical code established by ICF. Find out more here


I have 20 years of management experience, 14 of which as a middle manager, where my duties included developing the company’s strategy as well as setting the focal points of the field and implementing them. As Head of PR, I had a major role in communication during the merger of two large companies, i.e. the biggest possible change processes.

I conduct 1:1 coaching and team coaching sessions in companies and organisations. I have led more than 500 practical coaching sessions. My client base includes younger and more experienced managers from fast-developing and progressive companies such as Bolt, Wise, Directo and Elisa. I have provided pro bono coaching to teachers and family doctors.

I am a certified Executive Coach, 2021 ICF-Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and 2022 ICF-Professional Certified Coach (PCC).

Some of the words that describe me as a coach are professionalism, passion and persistence. My greatest strength is my ability to create an optimal growth plan with a manager. I aim to support managers in finding solutions to their issues and new, out-of-the-box perspectives. My main coaching topics are the strategic planning of work, setting targets and measuring results, achieving results, building a unified team, solving communication issues with a manager or co-managers and hiring new employees. Some managers wish to become better time managers, in-house or public performers or more confident leaders or to simply figure out their future plans.

I have work experience in both the public and the private sector. I have worked in the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and, for the past 14 years, in entertainment and communication company Elisa. As a manager and executive coach, I am an active spokesperson in media and I have taught seminars on modern management styles and building a personal brand for managers at various universities and companies.
