Nature photographer Ramunė Vakarė: in nature I realised that all the answers lie within us
Ramunė Vakarė, an enthusiast of wildlife photography and winner of the competition "Plant Portraits", lives in a remote forest village in the Karšuva Forest, which she calls her paradise.

Why apply lively systems principles in organisations?
It is important to understand the intention behind the desire to create or transform an organisation into a living one - is it the desire to be unique, to be modern, to be on trend, or is it above all the inner desire to create a healthy organisation? In the first case, the organisation will be a pretty façade without substance, another construct of rationality. Creating an organisation based on the principles of living systems first requires a change in one's own thinking and behaviour, which can often be emotionally difficult.
Business psychologist R. Baltė Balčiūnienė: how is a leader different from a manager or an entrepreneur?
In these times of change, which some intellectuals describe as a permanent crisis, we need leaders more than ever to propose new ways of acting. However, we often confuse the terms, equating leaders with leaders and entrepreneurs, and it is therefore important to distinguish between them.
6 meta-competences for modern business and human flourishing
While the industrial labour market has been much concerned with the importance of functional competences, it has been realised that soft competences are also important. Today, we hear another term: metacompetences, which are competences that a person develops throughout his or her life, and whose relevance is only becoming more pronounced in the face of the ongoing crisis (or polycrisis) and the rise of artificial intelligence. The success of our activities, and indeed of our lives, depends on them.
