My Background and Career

I studied molecular biology and microbiology and for the short period of time I worked in a hospital microbiology laboratory. I enjoyed my work, but I missed the people and creative work. On maternity leave I helped a classmate to launch a series of cosmetic creams and I found that I like to educate people, and what was the most important - that they trust me and take my opinions seriously.
There were also threats on my way - especially the number of people who tried to discourage me from my work, their arguments. Colleagues and acquaintances. They tried to derail me from my style of work and force me to use that one experienced for years. Often they are taking as an argument insufficient time for children. But I was on maternity for leave six years and my care about the kids I have always evaluated my care about the kids in terms of quality, not quantity. Luckily, I had the full support of my husband, his mother and my family.
I'm open to new things and opinions, I use a lot of typically female characteristics in leadership - listening, emotion, love working in a team, invent new ways.


My Experience

For some time my income was the main income of the family. In the Czech Republic was initially too conservative model - working man, woman makes domestic chores. To have help in the household was frowned upon as the inability of women. For money, I could pay for the services, for which I did not have time to arrange because of work, and then I was able be more with my family.
Family has helped me a lot. They supported me in every way they could. My husband's mom helped me a lot with children, husband had understanding for the time that I spent at work and even with his demanding job he took care of children when circumstances permitted.
Education and training were fundamental help. I make use of my studying field of science specialization while working for a pharmaceutical company, and MBA education helped me in managing people, in the financial outlook, etc. The biggest school is the practice.
I'm open to new things and opinions, I use a lot of typically female characteristics in leadership - listening, emotion, love working in a team, invent new ways.
The deciding factor of my success also were good opportunities for which I was prepared.

Communication skills, listening skills and empathy - I make use of them in leadership. Also the practical approach.

I am able to learn and put into practice new information in my work. I easily adapt myself to changes. I know and I use the required techniques to do a good job. I easily spread and transmit information. I listen and I pay attention to other people’s problems. I like partnership building. Personal development through my job is important. The personal development of people working with me is important. In case of arguments I’m looking for peace. I like to negotiate so that everyone ends up satisfied. I coordinate and motivate the staff. I like to work as a team. I schedule activities and organise myself easily. I solve problems and I find solutions. I like to have objectives and to reach my goals. I am able to quickly make up my mind. I know how to manage all my activities (at work and in my private life). I don’t hesitate to ask for advice. I am able to use the experience and advice of others.


Hints & Tips

So I might be loved by the others, I have to love myself.
Assumption precedes the problem.
If you have an idea, do not get discouraged. Do what you enjoy, and be happy, it brings happiness also to your surroundings. Just do not hurt anyone, especially not children. And remember also that once can finish everything, so have somebody to get back to.
Leadership is perfect for a woman, it exploits her feminine qualities that many men do not possess.
Do not suppress your femininity, do not try to imitate men, it never comes out and looks funny
