A character supported by a strong value system is the basis of the personality of the leader, which, like the talent profile, is the source of its uniqueness.

How does small talk influence the course and success of negotiations ?

by Eva Gaborik

In many cultures “small talk” is perceived as the first step to establish a successful and longlasting cooperation. „Small talk“, „lo small talk“, „le small talk“ or „светская беседа“ creates space for breaking ice and building an initial relationship. In some cultures “small talk” skills belong to a basic equipment of a manager. However, there are also cultures which view “small talk” as a waste of time. In their understanding a brief question “How are you?” is enough.

WHAT CAN BE CONFUSING WHEN WORKING WITH US TEAMS ?

by Eva Gaborik

Cooperation in a multicultural team can be a great experience but also a big challenge. People of a different cultural background meet together and bring their cultural software based on their key values and behaviors.

Cogito ergo sum

by Ivan Košalko

V prebiehajúcich diskusiách o tom, ako zlepšiť kvalitu vzdelávania na našich školách sa často stretávame s kritikou, že náš vzdelávací systém sa veľmi málo, ak vôbec, venuje kritickému mysleniu. To znamená, že talenty patriace do domény strategického myslenia sa u mladej generácie nedostatočne rozvíjajú.

talenty 1, všetky cesty vedú do ríma

by Ivan Košalko

Je dobre si uvedomiť, že k cieľu naozaj vedie viacero ciest. Každý by si mal vybrať takú cestu, ktorá ho nielenže do cieľa dostane čo najproduktívnejšie, ale zároveň umožní, aby si tú cestu čo najviac užíval. Paralela s Rímom sa mi zdá dobrým prirovnaním v dobe, keď sa mnoho ľudí snaží napodobňovať, resp. osvojovať si najlepšie praktiky iných ľudí, prípadne firiem. Nemyslím si že poznať najlepšie praktiky je zlé, ale odporúčam, aby neboli ničím viac ako pomyselnou štartovacou čiarou, prípadne orientačným bodom v úsilí nájsť tú správnu cestu pre seba.

Do you need a change manager ?

by Bohuslav Lipovský

Jednou z najdôležitejších osôb procesu zmien je Change Manager. Drží všetky nitky pohromade, vie o všetkých aktivitách, jedná so zúčastnenými stranami, plánuje a vedie aktivity procesu zmien. Analyzuje výsledky a dáva odporúčania vrcholovému manažmentu.
Bez Change Managera by mnohí ľudia boli aktívni v procese zmeny rôznymi spôsobmi. Následkom by bol zmätok, hnev, dodatočná námaha a napokon odmietnutie, alebo zastavenie procesu zmien.
