How do you educate your employees?

A colleague of mine has just returned from our office in India. He was leading our sales office for six months and now is heading to another of our sales offices – this time in Hungary. After I asked him about his Indian experience, he told me that it was nice, but six months was enough.

Change is the right approach

"No, it's not going to be fine. Change is never fine; they say it is, but it's not."

By quoting Dr. Sheldon Cooper, a character from one of my favorite American sitcoms The Big Bang Theory, I would like to point out that humans are creatures of habit. We like to have our coffee at the same time of the day, we like to put our furniture and other possessions in the same places and keep them there forever and some of us even like to have the same haircut for a long period of time. There is nothing wrong with that. Without some system and habits the world would burst into anarchy. But still, everything should have its limits... So how can we be scared of change and at the same time scared of falling into a rut?
