From the perspectives of Pudasjärvi's managers and employees, this master's thesis focuses on the effectiveness of coaching leadership training in management practices and the work atmosphere conducted by the University of Lapland's Training and Development Unit.

In order to develop a work atmosphere in similar situations, Chapter 7 suggests new tools to be tested. ...
