How can I help?

Best help is the one that creates desired results. That's why I always tailor my offer to your needs. I suggest we talk and see how and if I can help you. Here's a few ways I worked with my clients.

Hands-on business development, user-experience design, product discovery and validation

I basically operated as part of the team. My job was to find holes the business model and patch them.

Throughout this process, the business model was tested in the real world before the product was built and with each experiment evolved.

How does that look like in practice? Articles are in the making, so the fastest way to know is to call me.

*Best case is where I transition into a coach for your team that takes over my work in later stages.

Conversations that make you go "huh..." and then things look simpler aka. Coaching (1-1 / group)

Note: Coaching is and was NOT about me giving advice to you! Like a coach in sports, I don't have to be better than you at your game or even more experienced. I just need to help you love the game no matter the score and see things more for what they are.

What do I do in coaching conversations? I point to how our mind works, I act as a mirror and sometimes as a flashlight.

It is about you seeing new things or seeing old things with new eyes. New seeing sparks new action and new action creates new results.

*You don't have to have a problem, just a desire to create something.

Business is not magic, it's cause and effect.

Understanding how things work + Skills = Sustainable results

Deeper understanding of "physics" allows for better "engineering".

Why do we do anything? Where does the impulse come from?

Wherever that source is, that is what is running the show aka. our lives.

And since it is running all our lives and since business is just a bunch of people working together, same mechanic is present there.

Amazing people I worked with!

Sodelovanje s Sašom na skupnem projektu mi je bilo v veselje, ker sem mu lahko hitro zaupal, da bodo stvari opravljene kot smo se skupaj dogovorili. Hkrati me je presentil s svojo razgledanostjo in izkušnjami, ki so bile več kot dobrodošle in so nam pomagale projekt zapeljati hitreje in bolj učinkovito kot sicer.

Sašo organized a great workshop for our project team, where we defined a plan to set up a new product on the market, we also determined the root problems and solutions this product can offer for our customers. This was brought to us through an excellent approach from Sašo, who has really great energy and meets any obstacle we could throw at him head-on with flawless victory. I definitely think totally different about problems and solutions after our workshop and can always find a fresh approach with the presented techniques.

I know Sašo for about eight years now, and it so nice to see his professional evolution as well as personal development. Sašo knows how to ask powerful questions which lead to the next big question. And somewhere in between, there is small, but powerful glimpse of a future that I really want to live in. When I talk to him, I have that great feeling that he really listens and that he will lead me, without giving directions.

'Izkušnja (coaching delavnice) je bila super iz več razlogov. Mogoče najbolj pomemben je ta, da si tako odprto, vključujoče in iskreno podelil sebe in svoje izkušnje, ter hkrati slišal in sprejel vse, kar je prišlo v prostor z naše strani... Bil si zelo odziven in v trenutku in videti je, da znaš hitro odreagirati ter pogledati na situacijo, ki je pred tabo iz perspektive, ki je kar najbolj podporna in opolnomoči sogovornika. Zaradi iskrenosti in dobrohotnosti, ki sem jo začutila s tvoje strani sem se tudi sama lažje iskreno podelila. Dal si tudi več primerov iz prakse in nam pomagal videti čim bolj konkretno in odprto na situacijo, ki smo jo predstavili kot nas problem oz. izziv. Pa tvoj nasmeh in iskrice v očeh kažejo na to, da to kar počneš, počneš res z veseljem in iskreno verjameš, da je možno doseči čisto vse, kar si zadamo... Hvala, ker si. ;)'

We turned to Sašo and his experience in product management because we found ourselves in a situation we usually are not. With the best intention of helping our client as much as the project scope allows us, we agreed for a 2-hour workshop with Sašo. This was on really short notice, so thanks again for jumping in! In such a short amount of time, he gave us great input on the problems at hand and presented us with his process of solving them. He is a great listener, which results with great sub-questions and valuable answers and guidance.

You are alive, You are awake, You are creative and You think.

It is ok to give advice as long as I don't expect people to take it. The goal of advice is to spark ideas.
