He is at the forefront of entrepreneurism and leadership in Central Europe. Like ITAM promotes in its leadership classes, Rastislav says the key to building an amazing company is to ensemble an all-star team with a common mission. It's about the people! It’s about empowering team members to try new ideas and not to worry about making mistakes.&nbsp; Rastislav talked about the meaning of Googliness within their company. 1) Doing the right thing. 2) Striving for excellence. 3) Focusing on the mission. 4) Being proactive. 5) Being ethical. 6) Being nice to others and having fun! Rastislav is a role model for up and coming entrepreneurs and leaders.
