Understanding your partner – in good & bad times

If you are starting a new business you should know that you won’t always have all the resources to grow the business and that partnerships down the road are unavoidable. At the start of a new relationship almost no one thinks about divorce since one looks positively into the future. Similar to social partnerships. ☺ […]

Products of an unrealised dream

Let’s say you dream about making a short film to participate in festivals. You are an executive in business life and have never made a film before. What do you do? Don’t say “How come?” I said it’s a dream. ☺ Using your business skills, you will probably first think about building a team to […]

Romania… a new start

Choosing a hospital

Before an operation I had some time ago, my doctor asked me to choose one of the possible three hospitals he used for his operations. Answering such a question is impossible if, especially like me, you don’t know much about the medical world. I didn’t even know which criteria to use for such a decision. […]

Difficulty of first contact

You see someone in a social meeting and your inner voice tells you that you have to get acquainted with this person. I don’t know if you would prefer to silence your inner voice or go directly to this person and introduce yourself in such a situation. ☺ What I know: in order to discuss […]

“I want your chair!”

This would be his second job. He wanted to change his current one after four years of employment. He was sitting on the other side of the table, facing my HR manager and me. I was one of the partners and the general manager of the company. The meeting was one of the steps in […]
