Why did you join ST6?

I am truly passionate about transforming work culture and the ways humans create value together. I have co-founded several organizations based on the principles of Sociocracy, Holacracy, and self-management, and one of them was acquired by Amazon in 2019. After the acquisition, I dedicated my time to sharing my learning and experience with other organizations as a professional coach and advisor. The passion for co-creating “human-loving organizations” never left me, so joining ST6, as one of the best genuinely sociocratic organizations in Bulgaria, was the natural next step in my career and life as a whole.

Tell me about your work at ST6

I am a member of four circles, and I hold multiple roles within the organization. They all inspire me.

As an internal coach and advisor , I partner with people in a creative and thought-provoking process focused on personal and professional growth. By exploring their own inherent wisdom, people are inspired and curious to grow, find their own truths, and live happily. This type of relationship provokes me to grow as well.

As a member of the Organization circle , I support the organization on its journey to becoming even more sociocratic, self-managed, and human-loving. It is a never-ending evolution where we all learn to think, behave, and interact with each other mindfully, with higher awareness, empathy, and acceptance.

As a member of the Strategy circle , I support the organization with our strategic and business efforts and I participate in key strategic decisions that are the responsibility of the circle. Our purpose is to sense the ever-changing external environment and adopt the organizational strategy in the best way possible.

As a member of the Branding circle , I support the organization in all branding, PR, marketing, and communications efforts. Our purpose is to inform and educate people about the type of organization we are creating and its opportunities. Thus, people who resonate with our values can self-identify and decide if they want to join our organization.

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day?

After a busy day, I like to spend time with my family. I’m a father of two boys—two and four years old. We play games and have a nourishing dinner together, and after they go to bed comes my personal time. I usually play video games online with my friends, meditate, or learn new things.

What are your interests outside of work?

Latin-American dancing, snowboarding, kite-surfing, motorcycling, mountain biking, hiking, video games, photography, meditation, yoga, eastern philosophies, psychology, you name it! :) My restless mind pushed me in many directions, and as a result, I started various hobbies and later on struggled to keep up with all of them. Lately, eastern wisdom and meditation have helped me learn to let go and find pleasure in doing less rather than “drinking more coffee and doing more stupid things faster” :)
