Who is Krystyna?

I’m Krystyna, the Founding Partner of Inspire Excellence, a leading HR, Coaching & Training Consultancy. Having felt the effects of negative behaviours and non-inclusive workplace cultures, both personally and through working with global clients, it is my mission to help create efficient, productive, and happy working environments, through effective people engagement and through HR systems & frameworks that make people management much easier.

Having worked in many senior roles, including being an HR Director for a large global organisation, I bring high-level strategy and an understanding of corporate and operational challenges to clients I work with – but more than that, I commit to finding solutions that actually inspire, motivate and produce excellence.

As a Fellow of the CIPD and someone highly committed to personal development, along with my fascination with human behaviour and my background in NLP, Psychology, CBT and Coaching, I also bring a new perspective to people management, which enables me to really understand the needs of the individuals involved in order to effect change quickly and with impact.

I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to practices within businesses; whether that’s operational processes, management processes or HR policies & procedures. It’s my mission to use my knowledge, skills and expertise to give consistent, transparent, quality advice to help both employers and employees to understand employment law requirements, to feel confident and empowered, and to create a pro-active, positive work environment for all.
