what client say
"From networking to group learning and more" In short, this is how I would describe my experience with Gorana. During one of the events for Global HR Leaders, I had opportunity to meet Gorana and share thoughts on relevant HR industry topics. Her project on Adaptive Leadership and Change Management, I took part of, was challenging and creative. She managed to create learning experience that is far different from already known ways of sharing quality content. Open-minded and approachable HR professional, able to map real problems HR industry is facing and give answers. HR professional having in possession one of the rarest qualities to be found among HR Professionals today, ability to question and challenge herself in order to grow and being opened for challenges coming from others.
As part of the curriculum offered to our International HR MBA students at Magellan Institute, we very often turn to recognised professionals to bring their expertise through the use of real life case studies . Gorana was very receptive to the idea and was helpful in building a case based on her experience with major multinational companies ; she offered to cover the field of talent management and the potential difficulties arising between corporate functions and local operations when it comes to implementing global policies . The students benefited from her inputs to best engage in the case , then were guided in preparing their suggestions and finally received a thorough feed back . They all appreciated Gorana’s availability to them and the fact the case spoke to them being so close to what really happens in the companies. We are looking forward to another session which is already booked!
I have experienced Gorana both one on one and in a group setting. She brings to the table a unique combination of empathy, top-notch coaching training and years of hands-on business experience with multinational corporations. She helped me explore new perspectives to my issues and get a deeper understanding of what was really going on. If you are looking for someone to "hold the space" for you and bring your self-reflection to the next level, with Gorana you found the perfect partner.
I had the opportunity to collaborate with Gorana on different faculty projects; among others, she was a guest lecturer at the postgraduate specialist study program “Services Marketing” at the Faculty of Economics and Tourism “Dr Mijo Mirković”. She is an extremely positive person and a reliable, outstanding professional with great practical experience and expertise in her field. Gorana shares her knowledge without barriers and is fully open to conversation, so the only possible outcome is lots of satisfied students. It was a great honor to have her as guest lecturer and it would be a great pleasure to host her again in the future.
I have enjoyed being part of a peer circle that Gorana organises and moderates, because it helps me connect with other professionals doing similar roles in non-competing organisations to discuss and share knowledge on topics that are of interest. It has also created a small self-help community where group members seek advice or input on topics on an ad-hoc basis, providing new knowledge pools that we previously did not have access to. Gorana is very good at keeping us engaged, we have pre-read information, consensus on the agenda topics and a flexible approach to how the conversations so we keep up the energy. It's clear from the emails that follow each meeting that the group are getting benefits from being part of the peer circle.
I am really enjoying the participation in the talent peer circles sessions moderated by Gorana. I am engaged since several months, as the sessions are well prepared and structured around super relevant talent topics (skills management, the future of talent etc), enabling that we get the most out of each meeting. Also, the participants are experts in the field, and it is really interesting to share perspectives on talent, including sharing best practices during and after each session between all of us.
Working with Gorana made my life better. Although it was difficult for me to confront myself with self, personally, it had stunning echo on my late development. I am so grateful and honored to had opportunity to work with her. Literally, life changing longterm impact. Thank you!
‘To be or not to be’ in the Future of Work
Future of Work has already started and organizations need to decide: to speed up the preparation or remain within their realities and complain about the speed of the change. The challenges for the organization are coming from two at least sides: workforce of the future and impact of Industry 4.0 changes
Future Of Talent Management: Are We Ready To Give Up Full Control?
Recently I participated in a talent strategy masterclass in which the organizer raised an interesting question: To what extent is your talent strategy fit for its purpose? Out of 126 participants, 89% of them answered that it is not.
Beyond traditional learning programs
A lot is being asked of leaders. Faced with a diverse workforce and fast, often unpredictable changes, they are also currently tasked with upskilling and reskilling their teams, successfully leading and engaging, attracting and retaining top talent — the list goes on.
