The Big C - Courage

My dear Perfectionist, feel free to stay on vacation!

How many times have you waited to present a business case or an idea for a project because it was not yet perfect, just to be beaten by the punch by someone else? Or how many weeks have you allowed to go by before asking him out, only to find out he has started dating […]

Back to work!

Two days by the desk after the holidays, and it is the same as you had no holidays. You do not recall ever being on holidays, right? You are totally swamped with emails and tasks that needed to have been done two weeks ago. How do you make sure to preserve that state of balance […]

If I can do it, anyone can

No, this is not a story of a former drug addict who used to live in her car. I was not born in a slum, nor have I ever been homeless (so far). Was I forced to only eat instant noodles and drink boxed wine for some period of my life? Perhaps. Also, I used […]

How do I make sure people understand my requests

Reflecting on past glitches bear some pros and cons. On the one hand we can acknowledge the long way we have come, that we have learned to cope with some of our old challenges and celebrate we are no longer making some of the mistakes we used to make. On the other hand, in hindsight, […]

The Sounds of Winding Down

Never felt like dropping a bomb on your manager, wife, boyfriend, parents? I bet you did. You don’t need to tell me, but I know you did. Thankfully you don’t have a nuke […]

Death of People Management

I have clients who come to me because they want to manage their teams better and it always leaves me with an uneasy feeling in my stomach. Behind that discomfort could be a belief that, like “Simon says”: “You manage things, you lead people”. Management is a noun meaning “the control and organization of something” […]

The power of choice

Many articles have been written, and many TED Talks have spoken on this topic. Analysis paralysis is a real part of our daily lives, and although it might sound spoiled to my East-European parents, it is a real struggle. Why? Simply because it’s not only about endless options of different types of TVs and chocolate […]

Why bother with Personal Development?

Exactly, why??? Once you start the journey of personal development, it feels like a bottomless pit. You work with one thing and another issue comes up and the story never ends. So why even start? I have been working on myself for decades now (I know, I am too young to be that old 🙂 […]
