The Best Advice from Business Relations Expert Katarzyna Dorosz
International Motivational Speaker and Trainer in Business Relations, Diplomatic Protocol, and Etiquette; Journalist, Political Scientist & Writer
What are some of your latest products, services, and programs you are offering in 2023?
A new methodology for business, how to manage a company.
I help companies train employees. I teach motivation, time management, and coping with stress.
To these three elements determine success in managing a company.
The company is like a family. If there is harmony and peace there, it profoundly affects its development.
Smart company management is the basis for the success of all employees and the entire management team.
This applies to every rung of the corporate ladder. You cannot require discipline from lower-level employees if upper-level management is dysfunctional.
Where did you learn these concepts?
I worked in the media, and this requires consistent discipline and good time management.
It is a job under constant time pressure and stress.
You must be ready several hours before the press runs or the TV or radio program starts.
If you have a headache or are stressed, you have to deal with it.
After all, it is similar for almost everyone in everyday life.
Nervous at work, we go home and transfer nervous energy to our friends, family, and domestic life. And if at home, we are nervous, we transfer this to work.
We literally transfer this emotional energy from one place to another.
I have learned to find my balance on my way home or on my way to work. I've been practicing this for many years, and it is efficient and critical.
This method of finding a balance between private life and work turned out to be very effective and rewarding.
I now teach how to apply it, implement it, and teach others to make it easier for us to live with them and they to live with themselves.
For several years I have also managed large companies as a director.
Besides, as a child, I practiced various sports, including ballet, for three years. Sport teaches us discipline and motivation. Thanks to this, I found the joy of learning.
Planning is the most helpful skill for me.
I've achieved such a degree of excellence that if I plan to write a book in two months, it usually occurs. I am task-oriented and motivated.
I am happy to pass this knowledge on to the owners of companies and their employees. I believe that by using these techniques, they can achieve greater business success and build peace and harmony in their companies.
I believe in and use the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen. Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning "change for the better" or "continuous improvement." This Japanese business philosophy examines the processes that continuously improve operations and also involve all employees. Kaizen sees improvement in productivity as a gradual and methodical process. This is also my experience.
Discipline can be learned - it's training, after all. All we need is a willing spirit and a determined mind.
I also wrote seven books that change habits in life and help you achieve success.
I'm finishing another one right now: "Business etiquette with elements of diplomatic protocol"
What are some of your professional and personal goals for 2023?
A good way to set new goals is to make them:
Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Timely.
I plan my goals carefully. I try to make them measurable and achievable because it motivates me to further work and development.
The basic task for 2023 in professional life is more appearances as a speaker. Finishing my books.
Also, above all, conducting trainings and lectures that improve the quality of life of many people.
Privately, it's a return to fencing lessons and visiting Japan, China, and Alaska.
What are your 5 Business Tips For 2024?
1. Savoir-Vivre Or Respect Always And Everywhere
The dream of every company is to achieve great financial results. This is often ascribed to the proper management of financial and human resources. It should be remembered that the company's organizational culture is also of great importance in achieving this goal. Without this essential know-how, all goals are lost.
2. Become Independent And Maintain A Balance Between Work And Private Life
3. Learn emotional Intelligence ‒ The Ability To Recognize, Understand, And Managing Emotions
Emotional intelligence determines how well we live and is the key to being happy.
Emotions really have great power in stimulating us to change. This is because they directly affect our behavior and the way we think and therefore play an extremely important role in shaping our personality. If we have emotional intelligence in our lives, we will be aware of the importance of ethics in everything we do. And regardless of whether we are at work, with the family, or in another place, we will always follow the same rules and always be able to distinguish good from bad.
"Emotional intelligence accounts for 80 percent of the success in life." ‒ Daniel Goleman
4. Manage the company effectively according to the principle "Happy employee is a healthy employee."
5. Remember that in business, personality counts.
Your clients are highly educated and know all negotiation methods.
That's why I recommend always following pure intention.
Show your customers what you are good at and how you can solve their problems.
Be real and feel with your heart.
If you could name one word that describes you or your profession, what would it be and why?
Creative - my work is my passion.
What is your favorite place to eat and why?
I like to eat at home because I attach great importance to healthy meals. And if I eat out, it's definitely vegetarian food.
I must admit that if I eat in restaurants, I like the elegant interiors and delicious dishes served on porcelain plates. I love to follow the etiquette.
Are you an animal person?
I love animals. Especially horses, dogs, cats, jaguars, and birds. I have hummingbirds in my garden, and they fly over me when I'm working on the roses. I like horses and jaguars for their sensitivity and, at the same time speed and agility. I can sit for hours and look at swimming dolphins, killer whales, parrots, giraffes, rhinos, zebras, lions, and panthers. Every animal has its own secret, and the greatest of them is the one that man does not comprehend with his mind.
