Hi, I’m Anetta Pizag

I’m a workplace design consultant and strategist, workstyle coach and author. I’m intrigued by the relationships between people, places and performance, and I’m passionate about creating better environments and experiences for people. 

I started out as an architect and environmental consultant, working in Europe, New Zealand and Australia. After a decade, learning about psychology and business leadership became a turning point for me. I realised that the main purpose of our buildings is to make our lives more fulfilling and to help us succeed in an effective and ethical way. And when we make smart decisions about where and how we work, things reach the next level.

How I think and work

At an early age I became interested in how our surroundings influence who we are and what we do. I love walking in nature, exploring countries where people live in harmony with their environment, or just watching people in different places.

We spend so much time in the workplace, and our experiences at work affect our life quality to a great extent. I feel a strong calling to do whatever I can to create engaging, people-centric workspaces, and to help people find their flow, feel happier and achieve more.

I see no boundaries when it comes to finding innovative solutions to problems. I believe that essentially any places can teach us something about creating better work environments. Insights can also come from outside the realm of work. In my case, from my interests such as movies, literature, music, health preservation and psychology, as well as from simple events I observe in daily life.

I consider myself an eternal learner, and I constantly review and develop my own work style. I’m particularly fascinated to learn how other people think and feel. To put myself in the shoes of my clients and partners, and to get on their wavelength, I sometimes try out their work tools and methods in my own practice. I always learn something new, but more importantly, I find that this can take collaboration to the next level.
