LEADERSHIP Decoded.

Leadership – the action of leading a group of people or an organization, or the ability to do this. But what does it mean to be a Leader? On one of my recent trips to The United Arab Emirates, I have come across an interesting description of what makes a good Leader, here it is: L is […]

Godzina z Katarzyną Miller

Tym razem dzielę sie z Wami wspaniałym wywiadem jaki przeprowadził z Katarzyną Miller, twórca programu 20m2, Łukasz Jakóbiak. Dużo by tu opowiadać na temat ich rozmowy, lepiej zobaczyć samemu. Powiem tylko, że każdy znajdzie w niej coś dla siebie, bo różne sfery życia przeplatają się tam niesamowicie ciekawie. Jednym z intrygujących momentów tej rozmowy jest teza wysunięta przez […]

Sounds dreadful, but it doesn’t […]

Because I Said So

“How we went about testing these questions and what we found may astound you.
