Curious About My Services?
My most common assignments/undertakings are:
Figuring out what’s going on in organizations
If your organization is not working as well as you know it can be, but you’re not sure why, it can be really helpful to get to the bottom of what’s going on. Often, doing so involves immersed qualitative studies and I take inspiration from anthropology and systems thinking. Sometimes, however, it’s enough with a series of workshops with a cross functional group or senior management. I help out with both and do both short and long term studies. The goal is always the same though, to identify systemic patterns and visualize the effects they’re having. (Read about the work I did at Avanza–Download the Case Study here.)
Coaching organizations and teams
Coaching organizations and teams differs from coaching individuals in that we together first need to correct the environment so that coaching even can be effective. Knowing what to correct and how to correct it isn’t that easy though. I help you correct your environment and coach your organization and teams.
Whether the goal is to overcome dysfunctions, increase innovation and engagement, or to create a learning organization my services can be helpful.
Some of the more common situations that I’ve helped out in are: kicking off new teams, re-focusing teams, helping teams improve internal and external collaboration, and helping teams find a path forward when they’re facing really difficult challenges.
I coach product and work with big questions such as establishing a cohesive product development process stretching from senior management to the team level, or how to increase innovation and enable more product discovery. I also help set up product operations, increase product autonomy, and implement strategy creation and deployment frameworks that fit your context. And if you’re scaling and have lost track of your customers, I can help you visualizing and organize around customer journey steps or your funnel.
When there are events where everything has to click and work exactly as intended, or if you have a workshop with a really important goal that you absolutely must reach, you might be in the need for professional facilitation. I faciliate large and small events such as off-sites, conferences, organizational retrospectives, and self selection events.
Running context specific training
I offer a range of trainings such as my Mastering Team Dynamics training, Product Management training, Feedback training, and Agile Coach trainings. I do both context specific and general/open trainings.
If you’re running an offsite, kicking off an event, or taking on a new challenge where you’d like inspiration, you might be interested in my public speaking services. All my presentations are tailored to the clients needs and context and I often pair them with experiential workshops to really energize and deepen learning.
The most frequently request presentation topics are running qualitative studies of organizations, psychological safety, and how to build organizations and teams.

“Any organization would benefit from having Viktor Cessan around! The success of our transformation to a product driven organization is in no small part down to his amazing work!
“Viktor is one of the best coaches I’ve worked with. Your organization needs him to uncover its hidden potential.
“Viktor doesn’t only help organisations and teams to shift. He really applies coaching as his main driving factor so he doesn’t make the change. The orgs. teams and people do with his guidance. Viktor has helped us open the eyes to new ways of thinking. So, don’t hesitate to get his help if you feel something is wrong and you want to change but you can’t do it yourself. Or sometimes you think you know but keep applying old transformation patterns that don’t fit your purpose. He is your guy.
“Viktor helped us during our organizational transformation to product and customer journey teams and he was a crucial part to its success. He helped us to analyze the root cause to our challenges and he coached and worked close to our management team during the journey. He held trainings, coached individuals, teams and us as a management team. Viktor has the ability to challenge you and your organization in a constructive way and at the same time holding your hand and helping in every step of the way. He makes sure that you are not dependent on him in the long run and it is important for him that he helps in a way, so you are the one responsible for the changes.
“Viktor is one of the best Organizational and Agile coaches that I’ve had the opportunity to work with. The ability to quickly grasp the business needs, frame up issues, and propose innovative guidance, made him a great asset in Viaplay. His style of coaching was truly inspirational – in many situations he brought such clarity with a simple powerful questions or observation that created self-awareness and forward momentum!”
“Viktor has been a key on the Viaplays transformation toward Product Teams. His approach is an organic change that enables the organisation to spot where they need to change. What impressed me most about Viktor is his ability to carefully listen, capture and understand the team and the group dynamics and then present the patterns to the team. Leaving the team to acknowledge how to improve. He has been an enabler I highly believe that Viktor would be of great help to any organisation that is looking for a meaningful change.”
“Viktor exemplifies a rare combination of technically skilled and empathically focused leadership qualities. In the year that I had the honor and pleasure to work with Viktor, he brought his personal style of humility, tremendous agile knowledge, insightful observations around human dynamics, and patient coaching/teaching to every interaction. Viktor excels at challenging preconceived notions and assumptions while creating a safe environment of continuous learning for the teams with which he works. He is able to work in multiple domains: providing leadership coaching, influencing agile organizational transformation, developing high-performing teams, all the while building communication and collaboration rooted in transparency, trust, and commitment. While his extensive domain knowledge means he has many frameworks in his toolbox, Viktor also shows the flexibility to stay agnostic to one preferred method in order to help the team find the right tool for the right situation.”
