Let’s say you are a new leader in your organization wondering how you could deploy a new business plan which engages the organization to develop breakthroughs. I can help you by introducing Hoshin Kanri model which I have deployed in my previous workplaces delivering exceptional business results.
About meI was born and raised in a small but ambitious and fast growing country Lithuania. However, due to my eagerness to explore, challenge myself and learn new things, I always felt that the place was too small for me.
So after my international studying experience in South Korea and The Netherlands, I started to work at Philips in Amsterdam. I worked for a global transformation programme where I got my strong passion for process excellence.
Later I moved to shipping giant Maersk, where I was quickly promoted to form a new transformation department and take on a leadership role. This whole transition to a new industry and early leadership experience was tremendous for my personal development. But in the midst of my promising career, I decided to do something crazy! I quit my job to pursue volunteering with women in rural Uganda.
My career break year allowed me to take a step back and think about my purpose. This is when I decided to come back to the business world which was always so exciting for me, especially as I grew up with entrepreneurial parents. Currently I am working at Schuberg Philis, which is a Dutch technology company known for its self-steering customer teams and continuous highest customer satisfaction ranking (Giarte).
On top of my daily work I am still engaged with Integrated Villages NGO in Uganda and write my personal blog on issues which are typically faced by young professionals.
Other people often describe me as someone who is not afraid to get her “hands dirty” and deliver results.

Pfff! Politics again! Why can't I just work normally and avoid those politics in my company? They distract me and the whole organization from achieving the right thing.
Many of us might have such discussions inside ourselves or with our colleagues. I thought it is such an interesting topic to learn more about. Especially as almost everyone working in an organization faces it.
The "Political Savvy" book author Joel R. DeLuca suggests that instead of looking to politics negatively, accept it and better spend your energy in learning how to play it well.
The book offers a great framework and case study which really helps you to firstly change your negative attitude towards politics and then get some knowledge on how to deal in specific situations.
What are your thoughts and maybe tricks on how to deal with politics?
More and more I learn how important it is to tell good stories. Yes! Facts and figures are great to feed rational minds, but nothing can replace a good story which stays in your mind. But this is not easy!
