We offer a series of lectures on business and work. We are going to consider whether business and values can go hand in hand at all. And whether profitable projects can be about something else than cash.
„Values in business: 7 deadly sins”
What are the most common mistakes in running a business? What impairs fruitful cooperation? Pride, greed, lust… They may be a trap which ends up not only with you losing your conscience, but also your reputation and opportunities for development. Come and hear how to avoid it.
Piotr Lusina – entrepreneur, business consultant, coach.
„Values in business: employee and employer values”
What kind of ethical system should an employer choose to follow in order to avoid becoming a hateful tyrant, but still achieve his or her objectives? What values should employees embrace, so that their work does not turn into curse and anguish?
Małgorzata and Wojciech Nowicki – authors of the book ‘Uzdrowienie Finansów. Jak z Bożą pomocą wyjść z długów?’ (Healing your finances. How to get out of debt with the help of God?)

A lecture on how to respect yourself and your body while doing your work, i.e. how to make your workplace more ergonomic. How to arrange a workplace and how to work to avoid ruining your health?
Maciej Żłobiński – company owner (Activus) , a passionate specialist in the fields of workplace design for optimal ergonomics and working environment.
„Values in business: management through values”
Do ethical rules serve only to maintain the psychological well-being of the employees and peace at the workplace? Or maybe embracing values can help achieve the company objectives and increase team productivity as well as profit? How to shape the value system of the company and all its employees?
