Leaders are seeking to pay more attention to addressing issues related to human resources within the organization.

The latest research reveals that they mainly focus on organizational culture, employer branding, and retaining their employees. However, new trends increasingly indicate the growing importance of developing their own digital skills. Those who aim to become more confident in making technological decisions have already recognized the need to update their colleagues’ qualifications as well. They would also take on a greater role in addressing business or organizational issues arising from developments, as well as in forming strategic partnerships, because they believe their company is at critical strategic turning points.

„As a founder of five successful brands, I have been able to demonstrate my entrepreneurial skills and ability to identify market gaps and develop innovative solutions to meet business needs. Through my current venture, Sailinghangar, which provides leadership development and assessment solutions, I have been able to showcase my expertise in people management and the importance of aligning executive roles with strategic objectives.

In addition to my experience as a founder, I have also held roles such as interim chief operating officer, deputy CEO’s personal advisor, and change manager, which have enabled me to provide strategic guidance and support to senior leadership teams. I have also demonstrated my expertise in agile project management and software development, which are increasingly essential in today’s fast-paced digital world.

My education in economics, supply chain management, and organizational development, as well as my licenses and certifications, including IBM Cloud Pak for Security Sales Foundation v2, demonstrate my commitment to continuous learning and staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends.

In recognition of my innovative approach to leadership and management, I have been honored with awards such as the Industrial Innovation Awards and International Innovation Awards of the ERP category.

Overall, my extensive experience in management consulting, IT leadership, and digital transformation, combined with my entrepreneurial mindset and commitment to continuous learning, make me an ideal partner for any organization looking to drive business growth and transformation.

I believe in our mission, our people, and our solutions — and in providing the best possible customer service. A data-driven approach informs my management style and my customers’ success, but I look beyond the numbers because I am passionate about the work we do. I am driven to do whatever it takes to be the best partner with the best company culture in the business.”

@zoltan.szeker – „Everyone wants to be successful — but not many understand how to get there.”

The latest survey mentioned increasing cyber risks due to AI, as over the next five years, even more leaders, 77 percent, anticipate such cyber risks. Many are anticipating challenges threatening their company’s reputation and the growth of legal regulations. However, it’s important to note the trend that over the next three years, expectations point towards AI not just requiring new skills from their employees but also changing the way value is created and the nature of competition within their industry.
Digital transformation? How can I succeed in the digital business world?

Among the threats, skilled workforce and cyber risks are at the forefront. At least one-third of leaders are concerned about these, according to the latest survey. It’s worth noting that concern among business leaders about risks posed by cyber attacks has not changed since last year!
Enhancing Performance and Mental Health: Integrating Positive Psychology and Digital Skills

Organizational Development Specialist

In a mentally unstable environment, work can negatively impact performance. Positive psychology can help facilitate clear communication, thereby supporting mental health and enhancing resilience. Therefore, it is important for digital capabilities to evolve concurrently. During the #sailinghangar training sessions, we compare real-life examples with practical instances of cyber spaces and leadership.
Risk analysis and management are also crucial aspects of this framework.
