Marek has successfully executed extensive reforms and transformations in Tax and Customs Board. He steered it towards a customer-driven organisation that enjoys a high level of public trust. Most notably, Marek challenged long-held assumptions and positively disrupted the Tax and Custom's Board by re-defining its vision as supporting businesses and their growth. After a very successful career in public sector Marek joined Nortal to advise the public sector financial systems development and support implementation of VAT in Oman with change management.
People often have a stroke filter. They only let in strokes which they think they are allowed to let in. For instance they allow themselves to receive strokes for being clever and keep out strokes for being good looking. One way to think about this to consider being out in the rain. The rain is the strokes that are available to us, both positive and negative. There is a hole in the umbrella and some of the strokes go through and we save them in a bucket to enjoy in lean times. Conversely we might use them negatively to reinforce the negative strokes we give to ourselves. Of course, some just bounce off the umbrella and we might not accept the good strokes that are coming our way. Some might come in but fall straight onto the floor.
