Pawel Kaminski

Father, friend, enthusiast of life, fascinated by conflicts and simple solutions. Strong believer in
“One, people are good.”
I build teams, manage them and lead them to be trusted, reliable and proud of their work. I helped multi-disciplines individuals become goal-oriented team members, while still being creative, happy and recognised for their efforts.

“Two, every conflict can be removed.”
I see conflicts as wrong assumptions about particular points of view. Using theory of constraints, systems thinking and brainstorming almost any conflict can be resolved into a win-win situation. I use conflicts as a tool to generate the most creative and out-of-the-box solutions, which not only resolve the initial issue but help teams and organisations move forward. I dislike compromise, where usually both sides are left unhappy.

“Three, every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple.”
I am still sometimes guilty of building complicated solutions to problems. Learning and implementing lean customer development, experiments and measurements provide me with a platform to simplify solutions and focus on crucial, most risky and most valuable options.

“Four, every situation can be substantially improved; even the sky is not the limit.”
I have never seen an organisation, team or individual who could not improve, get better and achieve more. Continuous improvements, learning and the constant search for another breakthrough solution are always parts of my “daily job”. Searching for and exploiting bottlenecks are my favourite ways to initiate change.

“Five, every person can reach a full life ” I am a happy and proud dad, book lover, cross fitter, basketball player, keen traveller and first Polish person to climb 3 highest peaks in Greenland. Fascinated with TEDx ideas and work of Christopher Hitchens.
