Designing your career as you go
Success can be short-sighted nowadays with people chasing cool sounding positions. Having spent the last 5 years in the startup world, surrounded by founders, I’ve experienced that true fulfillment only comes by constantly checking in with yourself: Resdesigning your life often so it corresponds with your current values. There are fears and limiting beliefs connected to career change (taking bigger job, switching fields, starting / leaving business). How can we allow ourselves to go for it?

Details zum/r Referent/in Pavla Lokajova
Vita: Pavla is a Prague-based writer, content creator, aspiring global journalist and future-of-everything enthusiast. Her journey in media started 10 years ago as she co-founded a university magazine and continued in various advertising agencies until she co-created, a startup focusing on employer branding. During those four years, she worked as editor-in-chief, led a bunch of reporters and videomakers, as well as managed to interview over 300 CEOs and top leaders. Then she felt this business chapter was over and carefully designed her way towards new, more global career, which she claims is still in the making. “Growing up, I’ve always envied the best storytellers such as George Orwell, Stephen King or Gabriel Garcia Marquez the incredible opportunity to witness an exciting era of humanity and turn it into legacy for generations to come – until I realized that we, too, live in unprecedented times,” Pavla says, “owning the shift in media narrative towards authenticity & understanding, I believe this brave new world is ready to listen to new leaders, diverse stories and empowering messages.” From startups, ecommerce, diplomacy and politics to migration, racism and gender gap, she aims for her work to bring understanding, hope and practical implications.

Why do we hold ourselves back?
We all grow up with biases. These help us get on with our daily lives. Some are self-serving and some are self-restricting. When navigating certain pivotal stages in our lives, being cognizant of these biases can help ensure we base our decisions on the right factors. I look forward to sharing few examples from my career journey, moving between cities, finding my ‘Philia’ peer coaching partner in my friend and continuing to want more from life, while being happy with where I am currently.
