I welcome Pavle Sabic to my first-ever audio and video production of State of Readiness.
We talk about the human side of business; how to get more joy out of work, how to make it more joyous for others. And we talk about a company’s workforce and how organizations are constructed needs to change. Pavle invokes Peter Drucker with “culture eats strategy for breakfast” and agrees that culture is more important than strategy. To achieve this, companies need to put people front and center – especially as the workforce becomes distributed. And by that, Pavle means companies have to look to fairness, that the benefits of working together are shared together, empowerment and autonomy, empathy, and flexibility of work, autonomy.
In the best organizations, success is fueled by openness, acceptance, compassion and above all cohesion across business units. Understanding the company brand and culture promotes a clear company vision, mission and ambition. However some organizations are their own worst enemies. Their teams focus on complaining, waste valuable resources, expel energy on negativity and stretch the already limited resources.
Every single one of us has the potential to change the world and be the best version of ourselves. Pavle believes that change in a person’s life is possible no matter the age. Through the acceptance of our individuality, pursuit of self-expression and social cohesion, we give ourselves the opportunity to grow and thrive. Understanding the development needs of the individual within their unique situation, Pavle provides a confidential and supportive feedback-rich environment where clients can gain valuable insights and develop positive new behaviors.
