Commenting on the award, she said: “I am delighted and very humbled to have my work and service recognised in this way for the seventh consecutive year. I feel extremely proud to be part of this prestigious HR community of influential thinkers”.
“Helping individuals, companies and society to go through positive transformation, do well by doing good and create happier, more purposeful and successful workplaces is my passion – it is my life purpose. It gives me drive, energy and motivation, and it is hugely satisfying to see the practical impact of my ideas. This is more important now than ever before as we co-create new post-pandemic world”.
“What I have seen in many companies are over-controlling management styles and systems that employees find stifling and demotivating. Companies need a better understanding of human psychology and motivation. I call it humanising management – treating people with respect and distributing power and decision-making. The results, in terms of performance and success, can be astonishing. This is why I have written my books, The Management Shift and Humane Capital. As many companies embrace the hybrid way of working, humane leadership is the only way that can bring long term prosperity.”
Through her consultancy, Management Shift Solutions Limited, Vlatka and her team are helping various leaders and organisations globally to shift their performance, fulfilment and profit to a higher level, using research based tools and methods she developed over more than 25 years of her academic, consulting and coaching career.
