3stones Consulting Flagship Events launching in July 2023!  More information upcoming. 

We have a new mission:  "Learning Together"  一起学习

Did you know that investors are going "back to school" to learn about climate change? According to the Financial Times Moral Money initiative -  they are!

In line with this sustainability shift, join founder and cultural expert Päivi Kuusela as she interviews investors about how they see the social imaginary, or moral horizon, changing globally in finance towards increased sustainability. In the podcast, which is connected to the founder's international relations MA thesis on global green finance collaboration, Päivi raises questions for discussion from the perspective of a cultural mediator navigating the contradictions of global political economy. She applies paradox management lens in order to navigate these complexities.

The operational principle of the podcast is simple - that of learning together, because we are all students when it comes to climate change! In connection to the podcast, think tank events for the business space will be organised with the mission of "Learning Together". Why? Because global cooperation for financing the green transition requires 1)personal-level awareness 2) government and private sector coordination 3) reimagination and creativity to find ways forward, transcending geopolitics 

Tailored stepping stones as a service - elevated to serve sustainability! May 2023 

The three new emerging key service areas (or stepping stones for crossing rivers of challenge) are: 
EDUCATION. Creating awareness and a culture of embracing difference for green innovation (think tank events, podcast, coaching)

RELATIONSHIP. Strategic networking for business, think tanks and international relations actors

CONTRADICTION MEDIATION. Helping companies navigate geopolitical pressure and contradiction on behalf of sustainability


The Art of Cross-Cultural Relationships - at the core of the company

Knowledge can be studied, but skill must be acquired. And true skill is only learned via practice! We provide experience-based live training via which personal cross-cultural communication & management skills can be practiced in a psychologically safe setting - before stepping out into the real world. For both Nordic to China and China to Nordic transitions! In practical terms, are you transitioning from

-a high hierarchy context (China) or a low hierarchy context (Nordics)? 

-direct communication setting (Nordics) or indirect (China)?

- a more data-centered individualist culture or more relationship-centered collectivist culture?

How to understand other ways of communicating and doing things, and modify one's own "comfort zone" preferences? It is possible. As a first step, it is essential to map your unique personal cultural preferences and styles. Let's meet for tea and take the first step, planning a tailored personal-level program for you (planning meeting without cost). 

Our "context-based" training experiences can be produced at, for example, a lake-side cottage, startup office, teahouse or boardroom! Would you like a simulated startup interview? Insight into how to navigate some boardroom drama? Intrigue at the legal office? Guidance through a tricky management scenario where two management styles collide? We bring in live actors, create a tailored setting for experiencing different communication and management styles... and guide you through strategic options - tailored for you. Luxurious historical contexts are possible as well - for example Finnish President Kekkonen's sauna experience for guests.

(FIN) Ihmissuhteiden Taito 

Tieto ja taito hankitaan eri tavalla. Taito luodaan harjoituksen kautta.  Me tarjoamme turvallisen alustan näille harjoituksille!

Kulttuurisensitiiviset viestinnän ja johtamisen taidot ovat henkilökohtaisia taitoja, joita opitaan "tekemällä oppien". Kauttamme näitä taitoja voi harjoitella turvallisesti ja elämyksellisesti (live simulointi), jotta kalliita reaali-elämän kulttuurienvälisiä väärinkäsityksiä voitaisiin ennalta-ehkäistä mahdollisimman tehokkaasti. Jokainen tämänkaltainen kulttuuri koulutus räätälöidään. Ensi askel, alkukartoitus, on maksuton.
