''The idea of starting a coaching business started forming already in 2017 when I returned home after traveling the world. After living in Finland for a few years with my husband, I went through leadership and self-development courses and started a corporate job as a manager. During a furlough with a lot of spare time in hand, I discovered that I was able to combine my two passions, self-leadership and cultures. After that realization, the concept of coaching cultural intelligence and inclusive leadership started molding, the wheels started turning and here we are now!''

We at Numinos understand the adventure your company is about to embark. That is also why we have embedded old Viking symbol raidho to our logo since it symbolizes the meaning of the journey and new experiences. Raidno emphasizes the insights awaiting us over the horizon, and that we have inner power and compass to decide what we want from our lives.

For Numinos, it all begins understanding yourself: we use our drive and commitment to empower, engage, and inspire others to appreciate each culture’s uniqueness, and to collect passport stamps of your dream destinations. We are here to help you to see the world of wonder with a backpack full of courage. We want to encourage your company to embrace new cultures with confidence and set you off with luggage filled with tools for self-leadership.

Lastly, we always emphasize the importance of comfy shoes when traveling. We acknowledge that new shoes need to worn before you can truly trust them and that is why we highlight trustworthiness and collaboration in our values. In the end, we hope that your company can realize how many paths your favorite old boots have taken you, and how much you have expanded your horizon. We hope that you can cherish those memories while creating new ones with confidence on your cultural intelligence abilities.


Nice to meet you! I am Tanja, your cultural intelligence and inclusive leadership coach and WSA- expert. I have a bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management and Master's Degree in Business Administration, specializing in Leadership and People Management. I have always been motivated to challenge myself and to see other people reach their potential. 


I have been living on and off Finland my whole life. Traveling and exploring new countries have always been part of my life. So far I have traveled to over 40 different countries and the list will get longer almost every month! Traveling for me is like chicken soup for the soul. It is the numinos experience that draws me back to traveling year after a year. You can read more about my adventures in blog!


After a day at work, I love to go for long walks with my dog Ramón. If my head still feels overwhelmed at the end of the day, meditation or reading a novel will calm me down. PS. I always wear woolly socks no matter if it's winter or summer!
