Results or People? Things that matter more for company's success!

  Every company want to succeed as fast as possible with the less possible costs, right? This concept in management world is called efficiency. Usually, top and middle managers in the company build  processes that assure the best way of development, that means the most efficient way to accomplish main  KPIs ( Key Performance Indicators). From theoretical point of view it's all about results.
   But if we take a  look what is behind that we will see another word: "PEOPLE"!

   Who brings results? - PEOPLE!
   Who decides how the company should develop? - PEOPLE!
   Who pay for the company's services or product? - again PEOPLE!

   So, yes, It's all about people, their potential, the strategies they build and attitude they act!

   From one of the founders I have been working in 2014, I heard a very wise expression: "People come for the salary, but leave because of the Managers!" And that's absolutely true in my mind, because even incompetent employees were recruited( approved) by managers. That means that the manager made the decision that this candidate has qualities and talents that will be enough to accomplish daily tasks. If it doesn't happen - who made the mistake? Manager that made the decision. So, every manager that aware of this, will always admit that the fails of his people - are his fails!

  Unfortunately nowadays, companies focus so much on results and performances, that people become the second thing. Why do I say this? Because If your manager discuss more with you about results, than "what do you think about current activity" or "how do you feel today " or "was the meeting useful for you?", that means the results are more important than you.

  If you are the manager check yourself how much do you pay attention for those, who actually bring results and make the company successful:
  1)  How much Time does your employee have to think what he or she can optimize in his/her activity? 
       If it's less then 20% - it means this person is just a tool in a big mechanism, that operate by order.

  2)  Do you know how your employees feel today, are they motivated and full of energy?
       If you talk about your employee and his feeling in the work space less then 20% of total time spend with employee, then you risk to not be able to prevent the problems before they will be evident.

  3) How much do you know about professional or personal development plans of your employee? His ambitious?
       How can you help or motivate your employee if you don't know what is his BIG goal? His plans in your company? If you know less then 80% of your employees goals - then I can assure that the turnover in your team is more then 20%.

Focus on people, manage them smartly and remember that this is the best capital you have in your company, always develop and help the to grow in order to succeed! First people, then results!

The habit of being thankful for people that make my life lighter and more successful!

It's super important to acknowledge people that contribute to your development and achievements! That is why I would like to thank people periodically for who am I today!

Jian Reza - is my teacher of Swedish courses. She is amazing, super energetic and very fair person! I feel our group very lucky that we have such a teacher, because It's super interesting to come for dynamic lessons (by the way, our lessons are almost half of the usual working day) and learn by discussing new concepts of Swedish society! She also sometimes organize our visits to museums or libraries and help new comers to integrate faster! I am very thankful for her energy, help to be included in society and her fair attitude to everybody!

Tetiana Siianko - is first person who believed in me and made me part of interesting project in Sweden "Startup Weekend", where I was able to connect with a lot of interesting people, mentors and super active young entrepreneurs. She is also an awesome example …

Thanking the ones, that bring the impact in my life!

Hey, periodically I write about people that I feel very thankful, because they contribute to who I am today! They make me feel happier and show me a better world and many interesting opportunities around! Saying this, I would like to  mention in this article:

1. Inna Gurinova - is one of my best friends from former colleagues, that was always super straight about things and honestly presented her point of view. She is an amazing mom and friend, ready to give you a hand of help, good advice and a doze of positive motivation! I always felt that Inna can come up with a strong opinion about things, having wise arguments behind it!  No matter how far we are now, I am always feeling very happy when we talk  or call each other!

2. Zanda Saulite - is my today's colleague from Swedish courses and neighbor. I like her critical mind and very sharp humor! Zanda always gives  supportive hints during our experience of studding new language, since she knows it quite better then me. She can als…

Trust in yourself is a habit!

Lots of people would be able to achieve better results in their daily life, if they trusted themselves! Unfortunately, in many cases we do not believe 100% that we can achieve what we want. Our thoughts stop us to succeed!
   The good news is that we can change this! Trusting yourself is a habit and could be developed through repetition! Since we feel unsure in 2 cases:
1) when we experience something for the first time, we deal with something unknown.
2) when we experienced something negative previously  and have to repeat similar experience.

For example, when you have to talk in front of the audience, your emotions defined by previous experiences. If you didn't had the supportive audience before - you will feel very insecure or even stressed. Have you ever noticed that people, that have been supported by their family in childhood, feels more self confident and sure when they talk about something or take actions? It's because they have positive experience and are not afra…
