I’m delighted to announce that I am among the newest member of the Forbes Business Club and featured in the 10th anniversary edition of the magazin, in November!

For me, this is a powerful reminder of the immense importance of continuous learning for leaders and that adaptability is not a luxury but a necessity.

Over the years, I have learned (despite my youth, or perhaps because of it) that it is not enough to rely on past achievements and experience; the key to future success lies in the ability to continuously evolve, to be open and to adapt to change. The younger you get involved in business, perhaps the easier it is, because the 30s and 40s are already socialised in an era of rapid change, where the pace is very different to what it used to be.

In a (very) fast-changing business environment, decision-makers need to constantly update their knowledge to keep up with new technologies, market trends and labour market changes. In this respect, the Forbes Business Club (and its amazing community) is not only a resource but also an inspiration for me.

As an active player in the market, it’s a huge bonus, so you can implement the knowledge you acquire almost immediately – which is why I celebrate the fact that when you decide to go to university as an adult or join business communities, the results you get are completely different because you can apply it, test it, work it out the next day.

We are lucky! How much!

Of course, working on the base of your business takes not days but months – and in terms of organisational development, it’s much longer, but the sooner you recognise you need it, the sooner you start, the sooner you will see results. I am just starting out on this journey, so any tools and inspiration are a huge help!

It’s useful to surround yourself with people smarter and more experienced than you, so that you already have a system to work on.

The benefits of continuous learning also include flexibility, better decision-making and the development of creativity. As the world changes, so must we change (while maintaining our core values, of course) to respond effectively to challenges and seize opportunities. Written in this way, it seems so general and obvious, yet a dog’s work there is and will be.

But if you have a PURPOSE, you know what you’re doing, you’re authentic about it and you put your heart and soul into it, then it should work, no problem.

In the coming months, we’ll be looking at topics such as burnout and rebirth, organisational change, the 21st century and the future of the EU. measures of leadership performance, decision traps and challenges of leadership character… and many more useful things that are essential. They are not only basic knowledge but also highly relevant and help us to better understand how to be more effective and adaptable as leaders. However, perhaps most importantly, how to look after ourselves as we go forward.

In other words, how to be the best version of ourselves – which benefits everyone around us.

Because I know about myself when I’ve really put myself out there and when I’ve just “done the job” or pushed myself to the point of sickness after 2-3 weeks of being off. One way or another, I am learning how to do it well in the long term!

The newest members of the FBC

The goal is to create real, cool things, systems that work – that serve not only us, but all participants in the long term. They are also useful, innovative and niche. Now I think that’s the kind of creator that makes the Forbes cover. Let’s be creators, we only have to climb a few pages forward, but we have time!

I thank Forbes for creating the Business Club and for organising it so carefully, from the selection of participants to the quality of the meetings – and I am grateful to all participants for creating such a valuable and inspiring community together! I love that we dare to be honest with each other and that the community is so intelligent and supportive.

My experience (even more so now that I see myself as a leader and not just myself) is that there is nothing more important than attitude and commitment. The road to business success is often bumpy and challenging, but with the right attitude and commitment to our goals, we can overcome obstacles and make the most of every situation.

From my attitude and my commitment has led me to the Magyar Terkephaz Kft, the University of Warsaw and the University of Switzerland, and the Forbes Business Club. I believe that a positive attitude, openness to change and a willingness to learn are essential elements of successful leadership. This community is a place where I can not only share these values but also develop them further, while surrounding myself with like-minded, inspiring people.

Let us support each other where we can, because it is not only you and not only me who face similar difficulties and dilemmas.

I look forward to the November meeting to start working on the topic of “Burnout-Rebirth and Organizational Change”; and to meet my fellow entrepreneurs again!

Congratulations to all those who work day by day and CREATE and to those who PARTNERS in it! Without trusted, valued colleagues and partners, a leader would not be a leader.

Perseverance to all and good luck Aletta
