If you want to be your own boss, get out of the system...

Already during my studies of physics with only one subject at the then Faculty of Education of the University of Maribor (now Faculty of Science and Mathematics) I had direct experience of learning in primary and secondary schools. However, I soon realized that this was not my future.

The profession itself was very nice to me, but the fact that I could not be creative, and above all that I had a “boss” (I did not agree with the way I walked) above me and adhered to certain rules that restricted me. It is true that I was only 20 years old and wanted to fly and was rebellious, but I was still aware that I did not want to be and act like the colleagues I met in the chamber. So I decided to leave the system.

What bothered me most was that they kept complaining. But I did not want to, I did not feel comfortable in an environment where there was a lot of “negative” energy, and because I saw that I could not do much on my own, I left the system at the age of 24, went under entrepreneur and then when the “physicist” started working on optimizing business processes. In other words, I taught other entrepreneurs how to do their job more easily and efficiently.

Faculty of Education have much more knowledge and experience than teachers see in their work. It is only when you leave the system that you see the breadth and value of the educational path you are going to take as a future teacher. The position is based on the self- experience .

Many entrepreneurs have asked me where I got this knowledge and skills from, as I trained as a teacher and was only 24 years old. I could not explain it to them at that time, but today it is crystal clear to me. The Faculty of Education itself “gave” me this, the rest I have gained through experience.

Of all educational institutions, the Faculty of Education actually teaches leadership qualities best.

Based on the knowledge I acquired at the Faculty of Education:

  • Basic behavioral psychology to understand the workings of the human personality.
  • Basics of developmental psychology, to understand what are the key factors in adulthood.
  • Basics of brain function, to understand how people perceive information and external reactions.
  • The basics of the laws of nature (physics), to see where the limits of a free and safe life lie.
  • The basics of social processes, to see how society functions and what causes chaos.

That is why I myself have brought many elements from the pedagogical faculty into the educational process I have developed. Apart from the management method and my school, my priority remains  the reorganization of companies, crisis management, crisis resolution, which I have been dealing with for 20 years.

Although it is in my nature to find myself perfectly at home in such situations and then lead the directors to success. But when I analyzed my work to see why my work was successful, I saw that I was still working as a teacher.

In a company where I come to solve different things, I create a kind of classroom where I teach the employees new organizations and different approaches, and my work is exactly the same as when I was teaching at school or at the Faculty of Education in Maribor. This resulted in the title under which I am known among my followers today – TEACHER FROM LIFE.

In the article you are reading right now, I am not praising the Faculty of Education, but I would like to emphasize that we are not aware of our primary path and institution and that if we do not change our path, we will not see all the added value we get for our lives. In comparison, I wanted to show the added value of a teacher compared to other professions. It is true that the teaching profession is underestimated today, but we are largely responsible for the teachers themselves,
because we do not know how to appreciate our work and ourselves.

Therefore, perhaps it would be necessary, especially in the process of teacher training, to add more self-confident ways to build this self-confidence from within each student, rather than through the status and obtaining a diploma.
