Patrik Ekstrand

Team Coach, Scrum Master, Facilitator, Design Sprint Facilitator, Individual Coach

During all my working years my main focus has been to build strong, high functioning teams and organizations with great communication skills and strong brands. In my early years, I did this in the restaurant industry where I also learned to deliver value consistently and with the same high standard no matter what. Plate number 100 must look and taste as good as plate number 1. In my later years I have combined my knowledge, experience and skills to help people in leadership roles forming their own servant leadership to better prepare for leading in the Future. Except for my Agile Mindset my strong points are that I come from the Communications and Coaching side of Agile in combination with “Get shit Done” and an experience and interest in Facilitation Innovation and customer-centric processes.
