We live in extraordinary times. For quite a long time we were talking about the extreme speed of innovation in the world, but it was just a beginning. Thanks to the exponential growth in many sectors, we’re now starting to see the unprecedented acceleration before our very eyes, when miracles are becoming part of our daily lives.

I believe that a fundamental change of our civilization has already started and all of us will be impacted by it sooner or later.

A lot of people are warning us about really big risks ahead. And few others are talking about great times of abundance. From my perspective, the abundance itself is the biggest threat. The threat, we are already facing. The abundance of food leads to obesity, the abundance of stuff to the oceans full of plastics, the abundance of information to fake news, information overload and even the flat-earthers. We are not capable of handling the world of abundance. Yet.

I want us – humans – to be thriving in the future. The best path I discovered so far leads through supporting people to become changemakers, active problem-solvers who care, collaborate and also support each other.

My agenda is called Trinity Complex, which sounds like something between science fiction movie and mental disorder, which is kind of a point here. It is about enhancing our minds, bodies and souls, making our society more collaborative and protecting and improving our environment.

The plan starts with Impact Career Centres, where people grow into very powerful beings with the hearth at the right place.

My current roles

Father – I’m sharing the parental leave with my wife, which was the best decision ever. Kids are growing up so fast and I really don’t want to miss that.

System Leader (read here) – since 2016 I’m a coordinator of the Alliance for YOUth in the Czech Republic. So I’m learning what it means to collaborate on a systemic level among a lot of organizations and achieve a collective impact. And I also design new products and services to help young people find themselves in the world of work.

Visionary – that’s what this is all about. I live in the future most of the time.

Product Manager – that’s the role I’m used to the most, even when it’s hidden under another label like entrepreneur/intrapreneur/leader. Currently, I’m working on IBM Smarter University in this regard.

Career Counsellor – because of these projects, I’m usually in direct contact with students and I try to help them with their careers.

Speaker – I share what I know at conferences, in schools, and companies. The usual topics are product development (usually Lean Startup), collaboration among organizations and career development.

Lecturer – if you’re interested more in product development, business modelling (Lean Canvas) or doing business experiments, I’d be happy to help you and your teams.
