»In my opinion, the most inspiring lesson of yesterday’s meeting with Mr. Potokar was as follows: Nowadays, during this difficult economic period, confronted by changes and social malaise, while managers and leaders have more or less mastered the structural side of managing changes and their leadership skills, to be respected and a good leader to your colleagues, you have to remind yourself to never forget that first and foremost you always have to remain human.«

»Emotional intelligence is gaining on importance in business world and therefore every leader needs to establish his own way of communication with his colleagues so that people trust him. Trust is a value which is a prerequisite for following someone. Therefore every leader needs to obtain three aspects of trust which is so called triangular model – trust from family (by being real and good person to your family), trust from colleagues (by being good and trustfull coworker), personal trust (by taking time for yourself). Major importance is to find proper balance between them to obtain stability in your life.«
