About me ✓ Elena is a certified mentor
In work in the Transformation and Organization Development team at the WHO Regional Office for Europe/ United Nations.
I have worked in the Organization for 15 years and find it extremely fascinating to be part of the multi-national UN family both professionally and personally. I believe in the power of networking and personal branding, and have collected various tips in these areas. During my workday (when no days are alike) having tried different planning approaches, I began to focus more on goals and objectives, and in addition to the well-known aspects of time management such as urgency and importance, I began to use the third dimension of significance, which has changed the whole paradigm of the planning process, allowing me to be proactive, rather than reactive in my work. I am used to handle a wide range of administrative tasks, communicate with different people, and always test new ideas for better management of work/projects/time.
I have also seen the other effect of a high-paced and intense work environment which doesn't always allow us to truly enjoy the job that we have chosen to have, to struggle with heavy workload and feel tremendous pressure from our inability to control our day and workload, which upsets a work-life balance and negatively affects our well-being. Thus, I started exploring topics such as work-life balance, mindfulness, re-energizing yourself, as well as life-coaching and goal setting, executive coaching and mentorship.
Should anything of the above resonate with you and you feel that you need a neutral person to talk to about your own situation, I will be happy to have a chat with you, listen to your situation and allow you to make your own decisions based on the new input.
Either way, best of luck to you!
