Meet the Team: Tanja Mozetic

by C:F Team on 27th September, 2010 at 4:30 PM CEST

Today we bring you an exclusive interview with the best office manager of all times: Tanja Mozetic. Tanja is the newest addition to the C:F team. With her creativity, capability and bright smile, she makes the C:F office a whole lot better to work in. We find it truly impossible to be uninspired around her.

Tanja, reflect upon a time when you thought you were having a difficult time. Tell us how you turned that moment into your own personal inspiration for life.

I believe that everyone sometimes feel lost, unfocused and left behind. My time of self-pity came just after my graduation, when my work arrangements fell through and I was left full of ambitions and no place to express myself. That feeling led to a disperse and a feeling of no control over my life. However, series of bad events in my life shook my perception in a way that my priorities were quickly reorganized. It forced me to focus on things I love doing and help me to put my energy in my goals, not everyone else’s. And this was the best thing that ever happened to me, because just a week later C:F called me and offered me a job! And here I am working with the Challenge:Future team.

Tanja, tell us about your inspiration and what would you do to activate young people's passion towards their own personal future.

More and more I see young people's desperation and unwillingness to create their own destiny and it frustrates me. If you perceive and act in your career uninspired, it is very likely that you will do the same with your personal life. Having no power to control your own destiny is a disease. Psychological one, of course, but one which will subsequently affect your health. To turn this trend around we must do everything we can to stimulate young people in a way to help them find out what their passions and aspirations are. Guiding them through their own search will help them to focus on things they wish to accomplish and encourage them to put their energy and ideas into good use. Nevertheless we must not forget to create an environment where those dream can be fulfilled, because having a dream without any hope to reaching them is as frustrating as having none.

What are your new ideas to create a fun and innovative working culture within the C:F team in the office? Yes, Tanja we know about your baked muffins that you brought to the C:F office… share with us!

Many people are daily struggling to get up and go to work, therefore the best motivation for the lack of enthusiasm at morning hours is a challenging and excited work. Therefore the meeting where everyone would express their work ambitions, their strengths and their weaknesses would really help to determinate what kind of work scope suits for everyone. That of course, has to be done in non-working environment where people can relax and really express their expectations. One can create this with morning coffee and breakfast where we create an open dialogue. Through this we can also find out many things about someone's personality, which can be very useful in future. For me this kind of environment represents breakfast at my house with freshly baked muffins for all where we can discuss all the necessary and non-necessary things.

Hey Tanja! Great to know more of you on the inside, your thoughts. As a person, I can confirm Tanja is simply great, she's the missing link in the puzzle, an advice when in trouble and a solution if a problem comes up. I'm glad I have Tanja on my left side :) And another thing: as it rains a lot in Ljubljana these days, Tanja's smile is really needed to have a good morning start.
