Who is Anetta Pizag
I am a workplace design consultant and strategist, workstyle coach and author. I find it fascinating how our environments and habits influence how we think and feel and what we are able to achieve. My calling is to help people excel and find joy in what they do by making conscious and intelligent choices about where and how they work.
Why I’m here
I have seen and worked at a large variety of workplaces. I notice that the qualities of the space, and the ways we approach our tasks, can make a difference between having a good day or a bad day at work. I’d love to help people to get into the right headspace and do amazing work every day, by giving them training, guidance, and the environment they need to thrive.
What I do
I assist with the creation of human-centric, future-ready workspaces that enable people to effectively tackle the ever-changing challenges of work while maintaining a healthy body and mind. I guide and educate people to explore their unique work styles, and develop work practices that bring out the best in individuals and teams.
I work with business leaders, managers and team members as partners in the change process, and explore problems and solutions in close collaboration with them. I also consider scientific insights, proven design solutions and work practices, the results of pilot studies and experiments, as well as my intuition, when developing a tailored workplace strategy.

7 key qualities of high-performance work environments
My design strategies are based on how the most successful, consistently high-performing businesses work, how their workplaces are designed, and how they use the space. This is the foundation of my unique design model which focuses on 7 key areas of business and workplace performance. I make sure that every single aspect of the physical space – including colours, textures, materials, lights, sounds, room layouts, furniture, technology and media – supports excellence in each of the 7 areas of your business.
