- Is driving a strong machine a guarantee that you will be the best on the track? How important is a machine / company for career development?
It is certainly easier for you when you have a large and successful system behind you, with a strong and developed infrastructure, with a recognizable high-quality production program, decades of accumulated knowledge and experience in doing business in the international market. However, in order to be good enough, you must constantly work on yourself, improve in the business you are engaged in, be open to all changes and ready to respond to business challenges at any time.
- How important is speed in victory, and how important is strategy?
The speed with which you adapt to market demands is very important. The world and life around us, the way and conditions of business – are changing rapidly and, in order to survive, you must not only respond to the new situation with that speed, but also try to predict how the situation will develop in the future. You adjust your strategy accordingly. By the way, this year’s motto of our company is: “Speed to success!”
- On the basis of which skills and characteristics do you choose a co-driver on a business “ride”?
The basic precondition for choosing a co-driver is whether we are going in the same direction and towards the same goal and whether I can rely on him. Also, it is very important to me that he is sure that he can rely on me at any time. By supporting each other, we will go further than we could on our own.
- How often do you look in the rearview mirror (look back at previous business decisions and moves)?
In time, I realized that looking back only distracts and distracts from what is in front of us.
Yesterday’s success does not guarantee success tomorrow, and sleeping on laurels is very dangerous
If we did something good – great! If not, then we have learned a new lesson. Let’s move on.
- What do a good driver and a good manager have in common?
They both have a great team to follow them. Neither of them can realize their goal on their own. Watching the Formula One races, I was always fascinated by the team of technicians in the pit stop, who, fantastically synchronized, in a very short time prepares the car to continue driving. The victory that the driver achieved is by no means only his, but he came to it, above all, thanks to the team that did its part of the job perfectly.
