Evil People Exist, and the Problem Is That They Are Ambitious

“Give a man power, and you’ll see what he’s truly like.” Of course, this cruelty in people isn’t a product of the modern age. I’d say it has nothing to do with dates and years; it’s inside people….

Zli ljudi postoje i problem je što su ambiciozni

„Daj čoveku vlast, da vidiš kakav je.“ Naravno, ova okrutnost u ljudima nije tekovina novog doba. Rekla bih da ona nema veze sa datumima i godinama, ona je unutar ljudi. Da li znate da je čovek jedino biće…

Šta ako se ne uklapate u sistem?

Nepisano pravilo o nužnosti odvajanja poslovnog i privatnog gotovo da se i ne primenjuje u praksi. Međutim, potreba da se o nekome nešto sazna nije jedini motiv za brisanje ove granice. Suštinske razloge treba tražiti dalje. Omiljena navika…

Kako dalje posle otkaza?

„Koga nema, bez njega se može.“ Može se, naravno, ali je rezultat mnogo drugačiji. Saznanje, informacija se može saopštiti, ali ne i mudrost. Ona se mora pronaći, u njoj se mora živeti… Šta se dešava nakon neopravdanog i…

Kako se prelazi iz negativnog u pozitivno?

Negativnosti su sastavni deo naših života, toliko smo se srodili sa njima da ih često doživljavamo kao krajnje normalnu i očekivanu stvar. A kada ipak nije tako, naš mozak ih procesuira kao opasnost i razmišlja o tome kako…

Mi smo ljudi, i to treba da ostanemo

“Dobro raspoloženje se kreira dobrim delima, kada usrećujete druge bez ikakvih očekivanja zauzvrat.”   Svi se rađamo sami i umiremo sami. Život između delimo sa ljudima koji su nam dragi (ili vremenom postaju manje dragi). Nekada vas boli…

No Pressure, No Diamonds

FREUD: Before you think you’re DEPRESSED, check if you’re surrounded by IDIOTS! I’m particularly sensitive to those who spread negative energy and kill optimism, whether consciously or unconsciously. As a child, in such situations, I would fidget and…

Da li ste dijamant?

FROJD: Pre nego što pomislite da ste DEPRESIVNI, proverite da li ste okruženi IDIOTIMA! Posebno sam osetljiva na one koji šire negativnu energiju i ubijaju optimizam, svesno ili nesvesno. Kao dete, u takvim situacijama bih se vrpoljila i…

Kada reči prestanu – no feedback culture

Današnji menadžeri vrlo lako i rado prihvataju nove trendove u prekidanju veza i odnosa. Ghosting je termin za oblik ponašanja (prvenstveno vezan sa onlajn komunikaciju na društvenim mrežama, gde jednim klikom možete „obrisati“ nekoga kao da nikada nije…

Truth or Lie, That Is the Question?

Actions speak louder than words

I recently heard a saying: “When you have one worker too many, you have two workers too few.” There is a lot of truth in this because an idle person always needs company for chatting and taking breaks….

Da li više pričate ili više radite na poslu?

Nedavno sam čula izreku: „Kada imaš jednog radnika više, imaš dvoje manje.“ Mnogo je istine u njoj, jer – osobi koja je dokona uvek treba društvo za priču i odlazak na pauzu. A pauze obično budu duge i…

Ima li mesta za inovatore?

Mnoge kompanije veliki akcenat daju inovacijama. Od lidera se naročito očekuje da budu inovatori kako u tehničkim znanjima (unapređenju procesa, proizvoda…), tako i u socijalnim „soft“ veštinama (razvoj organizacije i odnosa među kolegama…). Ali to nije tako lako…

Pristalica sam i uporni zagovarač zvaničnog, transparentnog i poštenog poslovnog modela uvek i svuda, bez izuzetaka. Reći ćete, verovatno, da je to u poslovnom svetu nemoguće i da posao, sam po sebi, podrazumeva iskakanje iz zone iskrenosti i…

Informacija je moć

Form or essence

Style reflects self-respect. Attitude towards clothing speaks about how much you value yourself or whether you have a bit of “gay” genes. Like it or not, people are visual types – especially men, and the aesthetic moment matters…

Forma ili suština

Stil odražava samopoštovanje. Odnos prema garderobi govori o tome koliko cenite sebe ili da li imate malo „gay“ gena. Svidelo vam se ili ne, ljudi su vizuelni tipovi – naročito muškarci i bitan im je estetski momenat. Zato…

Kako se napreduje bez znanja i morala “fake manager”

Za pomeranje ka vrhu lestvice najvažnije je da „plivate“ i opstajete u korporativnoj politici. Ako se opredelite za takav put, imam nekoliko saveta za siguran uspeh. Formalno obrazovanje, dakle, nije presudno, a nisu ni moral ni savest. Osnovni…

Korporativni izazovi: usavršavanje, druženje i “work-life” balans

Savremeni trendovi u poslovnom svetu nameću „pravilo“ da svaka ozbiljna kompanija, koja drži do svog renomea i uspeha u budućnosti, zaposlenima mora pružiti mogućnost dodatnog razvoja. Nema ničeg lošeg u tome, naprotiv. „Čovek se uči dok je živ“…

Kada sastancima dodate malo logike (kakvi sastanci treba da budu)

Ne volim duge i besmislene poslovne sastanke. Zapravo mislim da ih retko ko voli, ne računajući one kojima su oni pozornica za demonstraciju moći, lečenje kompleksa i jedino mesto gde mogu pričati a da njihova nestručnost ne dolazi…

Uspešni rezultati i zadovoljni zaposleni? Moguće je!

Agilni timovi nisu nadzorni organ, niti ad-hoc kreiran tim, već izvršioci. To su osnaženi timovi koji imaju autoritet da donose odluke…. Članovi agilnih timova dobijaju osećaj svrhe i pripadnosti i imaju motiv da smanje kompleksnost, eliminišu ponovni rad…

Upravljanje prilagođeno kompleksnom okruženju

Raspad sistema! Tu izreku često koristimo kada primetimo da stvari ne funkcionišu onako kako bi trebalo. Tada na scenu stupa Manadžer 3.0 koji „upravlja sistemom, a ne ljudima“. Sve teče, sve se menja, pa tako i menadžment. Tvorac…

Istina o disfunkcionalnim timovima

Ideja da se ljudi organizuju u timove, kako bi stvorili proizvod ili pružili uslugu, deluje prilično jednostavno. Šta se u praksi desi, što čini realizaciju ove ideje komplikovanom? Ja lično, uvek dobijem nalet entuzijazma i energije kada počinjem…

Crno-beli pas, rase border koli, po imenu Bingo, bio je dresiran da čuva stado koza. Slušao je gazdu sa kojim je proveo mesece rada i druženja. Dobro su se razumeli i Bingo je sve radio besprekorno. Jednog dana,…

Manipulatori u svojoj omiljenoj predstavi “Fake it until you make it”

Znanje je najbolje oružje za svaku borbu u životu, pa i za one na poslu, ali ljudi koji ga nemaju – odabraće ono koje im je dostupno. Za prikrivanje istine o tome da nema neophodnog znanja i umeća…

Otkaz kao emotivna kategorija

Ustavno pravo je pravo na rad. Takođe je i ljudsko, lično… Nezaposlenost je pogubna za dostojanstvo i samopoštovanje. Problem koji postoji na ličnom nivou ne ostaje tu, već se, posledično, prebacuje na porodicu, ljude u okruženju, povlači za…

Svi se rađamo sami i umiremo sami. Život između delimo sa ljudima koji su nam dragi (ili vremenom postaju manje dragi). Nekada vas boli kada određena osoba izađe iz vašeg života, a nekada osetite olakšanje. Razni ljudi će…

Rođendan na groblju

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” Čovek često razmišlja unapred i očekuje neke događaje, čak i one nimalo lepe i prijatne, bolne, kakav je gubitak voljene osobe; pokušava da se pripremi za njih, a onda,…
