Tips & tricks how to mix and match motherhood and career
About meI’m in HR for more then 10 years & most of it working in IT. As well I’m mom of two adorable kids. My interests beside professional world goes around books, sport & traveling. My HR expertise vary from IT recruitment lifecycle, labour law to designing all employee experience in the company(including learning& development, comp&benefits, engagement, performance management etc.). Currently I’m mostly interested in to agile HR and disruptive HR topics, as change pace in last years becomes faster and faster. As human beings we are keen to develop, create, invent & discover new horizons. What’s good enough today might be not good enough tomorrow already. Agile for me is not set of tools, it’s more way of thinking. HR is not about methods and tools as well, it’s rather about people. I want to share one quotation from the book written by Pia-Maria Thoren “Agile people” with insights about future organizations: "Laloux turned his attention to the organisations of the future, which are teal.
<..> Since they are just evolving now, we don't know exactly what the characteristics are, but it looks like they will be primarily self-organizing, decentralized networks <...>"
"The central question in teal organizations is, how we can find a purpose that changes and develops us? Life and work are integrated. They focus on the whole person, instead of just the work persona. The number of hours that people actually spend at work or doing work is not as important as the amount of time that people spend developing themselves and becoming better. Employees are more accountable to their colleagues then they are to a department head or a manager. Peer pressure is a powerful motivator in both teal and Agile organizations”.

Digital Nomad Life
Over the past years, I have worked from various countries, from India to Spain or Greece. The journey has not been that easy and I have made plenty of mistakes on the way. Moving to a new country for a few months without knowing anyone can be challenging, laptop on a beach is not a reality.

Starting you own business as a Student
I have founded a company in my first year of university. My goal was to help my fellow international students have a more convenient move in by providing a starter kit.
Over two years, I grew the company to $50k+ in revenue and led a team of 6 part-timers to accomplish our mission :)
