Be empowered and inspired as a leader with our global partner Sonja Klopčič

Sonja is our global partner in Slovenia. She brings to you - 'Ideas for Leaders', Inspirational, practical and very useful tips for you to improve yourself as a leader and inspire others. She is the author of the book "The Energy inside leadership".

 

Sonja is a developer of new era leadership, and describes real business stories with a personal touch. Follow this column in our monthly digest for leadership tips to help you be instrumental and more impactful in your walk in leadership.

Leadership Tip #11: Be Happy. Simple.

 

Featured leaders from the book The Energy Inside Leadership, Stories of Collaboration and Change from the Heart of Europe have gathered in an open dialogue, round-table discussion on Leadership of  the new era. The talk was concluded with the proposal to replace success with a different goal. Let our goal be to be happy. I think this is a wonderful vision for everyone. Being happy means in the first place to be the leader of yourself. And the best thing is, if your work instills happiness in others.

My feeling of happiness was invigorated by the words of my interlocutors who shared how I influence them. Tomaž Lanišek pointed out provocation, that I dare to write a book about the stories of leaders.  Ajša Vodnik appreciates that you can sense the story as very sincere even when everything does not follow an upward trajectory. Dejan Turk was happy that the book is in English, so that it can be read even by those outside of Slovenia.

Andrej Božič sees great courage in me: To have a company, like Oria Computers, which was in the then Slovenian territory a trailblazer, unique and so much more, and then to go into a story of restoration of Svea. You must follow your heart, because the mind in this situation says that this will be difficult. And to then write a book about it so that we can draw from this lesson, begin to think and change things. This is a big lesson for all of us who read it. Also very emotional. She showed a human's and woman's side. This could only be written by a woman. She knows how to create a synthesis of all the right things.

Ksenija Božič said that I was her idol since 1998. Idol in the meaning that a woman can succeed  in a woman's way, with the woman energy. She values me because of the structure I have established for myself, which is also one of the reasons the book was published so fast.

When I get scared, I think of Sonja. If she did it, I can too. When I want to connect people, when I want to get them in a flow towards a common idea or goal, I again think of Sonja, how she can connect us, how she knows how to get various characters together, give us focus and we just follow her. She really is an idol to me.

Because of all these words I am simply happy.

To whom are you an idol with your work? Who do you influence or invigorate them to feel happy?

Be happy.
