What can Ylva Johansson and Why Be Jammed do for you?


She will manage your tough projects and changes by daring to remove details, focusing on what's essential and visualizing the solutions. She will make difficult things look easier to help your competent employees find more improvement possibilities. She will communicate with pictures and summaries so managers and employees get a good overview of issues and solutions. And she will listen to their views and ideas to achieve optimal solutions.

Why should you choose Ylva as a business developer, project manager, interim manager, workshop leader or coach? She has solid competence and long experience from managing complicated investigations and projects, achieving very good results and always delivering on time. She always manages to motivate and engage the employees. It might be that the combination with a background as a nurse combined with Stockholm School of Economics provide the perspectives that are needed, but you can read more about how she thinks and works in her book "Leadership & Wisdom – How to Motivate Yourself and Others".



Ylva and I met when she was project manager in a complex Solvency 2 project. Ylva is pedagogical, intelligent, driven and very easy to work with. She raised difficult questions and, with her true interest in people, she managed to explain, break down difficult issues and make the group work towards a common goal. Ylva sees the people she works with and makes everyone involved.
I have also used Ylva as a job coach to develop myself as a leader. From that work, I have tools that make my everyday life as manager clearer and better.
