OK5 – Connection as a purpose
It started with a vision
Ilona Rauhala had a vision of easy access to psychological knowledge. When she started to digitalise elements of coaching she was joined by Ira Lange. In 2022, Kimmo Kääriä and Iikka Virkkunen joined the team with valuable technological and commercial experience.
OK5 set out to help organisations implement a coaching style of leadership to better manage psychological capital: emotional atmosphere, collective self-efficacy, psychological safety, and resilience.
OK5 helps organisations to make their learning agile and effective. We combine digital content, learning platforms, artificial intelligence, and face-to-face coaching. For individuals, teams and the whole organisation.
If you are faced with challenges regarding complex organisational change, merger, layoffs, growth or cultural change, our multi-professional and systemic approach is a perfect fit.
Sparked by successful conversation
OK5 stands for the five elements of a successful conversation. The model was first presented in a book about the power of convesation: "Keskustelun Voima" (Otava 2020). The model has been tested in numerous organisations and coacing programmes.
Anyone and everyone can add quality to all of their encounters - short talks in the hallway or demanding goal-oriented specific conversations.
Our digital communities OK5 Grow, OK5 Influence and OK5 Lead provide advanced knowledge for all situations in leadership, sales, customer service, creative work, teamwork and beyond.
The OK5 team helps cultivate a culture of connection and collaboration through digital and AI support for leadership development, team coach training and executive coaching.Meet our team
