Thank you for visiting my website
A few words about this site
This site is meant as general description of the services offered by my company: SKRIS. The idea is to give the visitor short overview of what I can offer. The services offered are based on my professional experience gained at work, used in practice, proved to be successful. Although using any approach was always preceded by training, it's real value was tested in practice and some tools have been adopted but some dropped. Simply because some of them worked for me and some not.
Working for several years as a scientist I am used to critical evaluation of any idea and I apply in practice only those to which I am convinced and I can see that they are working for me.
The two areas on which I concentrate now, are: project management (focusing on saving projects at risk) plus coaching and mentoring (focusing on stress management, emotions and communication). The structure of the website reflects these areas.
To give you more insight in my skills I asked my Customers for feedback. You can read those opinions in "Recommendations" window. There is a page "About me" providing my short CV, too.
In case you want to contact me, please use "Contact" page where you can find contact details as well as a simple form to send me a message. I will appreciate any question or comment regarding my offer as well as the website.
The necessary element of every life aspect, whether personal or professional is a project. Even buying "just a bulb" proves to be a project which should be well planned not to waste time when going shopping.
When talking about project immediately I refer to Krzysztof Skubis whom I had a pleasure to meet recently during workshop for workers of bureau of Polish Chess Federation. I recall a lot of information and details (including didactic story about elephant consumption) helping to see some endeavors, at first glance impossible to achieve, in completely different light.
Krzysztof Skubis is a professional teacher demanding from his interlocutor both discipline and creativity. Thanks to him and his pieces of advice I feel now equipped in practical tools which help me to achieve success in work and personal life.
To those who habitually „fight fire" and cannot deliver their projects on time I, in good conscience , recommend professional help of Krzysztof, who will teach you as well that sometimes you should give up on some high risk projects....

I used to have caoching sessions with Krzysztof in the form of barter services. Every session with Krzysztof (me as a customer) is great curiosity. Every session with Krzysztof brings for me new discoveries about myself. I value work with Krzysztof for preofessionalism, persistence, goal driving, direct communication, wit, accurate summaries, a liitle bit "sharp tongue" which I sometimes need. This motivates as well as amuses me, making session time interesting and fruitful. I value work with Krzysztof for his mentoring elements. Everybody has his own working style and this is how I see Krzysztof's style. Thanks for this.
Top advisor, full trust, extremely knowledgeable and reliable partner. I was working with Krzysztof 5 years, incl. the time when Krzysztof was my direct manager. Krzysztof proved himself to be very successful consultant as well as people manager. Always helpfull and a step ahead. Pleased to stay in touch as a coachee.

I had a pleasure to work with Mr. Krzysztof in coaching process for half a year. During this time we worked out three topics: delegation, resistance and emotions. What suprised me the most was the knowledge about myself. Work with Mr. Krzysztof opened my eyes on certain aspects, to which I did not put attention so far, but which had/have big influence on the quality of my job. Mr. Krzysztof is excellent professional - with big experience, always valuable pieces of advice. To be honest there were no situation for which Mr. Krzysztof could not have had soultion ready. What he says is realy worth application. The most valuable for me was proper division between my skills and weaknesses. I learnt that what everyone sees as negative in reality can be positive. However, to achieve that it is worth to apply Mr. Krzysztof 's tips. I would higlyl recommend to everyone who is willing to develop and work on himself or herself!
I am strategic advisor in time management and productivity area working for corporate and big enterprises managers. If I was asked to point at people who significantly contributed to my professional development, Krzysztof Skubis nearly automatically comes to my mind. Our cooperation started at Microsoft, where Krzysztof supported my development in project management and solving situations with customer in project team. Till today conversations with Krzysztof and his point of view add a lot to my development and improve project "Ogarnij Chaos" ("Grasp the Chaos"). I especially value Krzysztof for his composure and complex overview of the problem discussed. Even extremely difficult case, after Krzysztof's analysis become just case to manage. Rich business experience and highest communication skills make him exceptional business partner and mentor. I can recommend in good conscience Krzysztof Skubis' services to all professionals looking for consultant - practitioner who will become their partner in long term development.

It is a pleasure to have been asked to write recommendation for Krzysztof Skubis: who was my Coach and Mentor from the beginning of my professional career as project manager. I was a very lucky person because after I was hired by Microsoft, just by accident Krzysztof was assigned as my “Mentor”. From day one to the last day in Microsoft we had a monthly meeting during we had a chance to discuss and evaluate different approaches of leading projects as well as different way of dealing with people / team member problems. He is also a watchful observer while he spots lack of competences in the project management discipline in our department he immediately organize a workshop with world best guru in this area.
After five years I can say about myself that I’m very efficient project manager and I can definitely say that one of the most important, fundamental brick in my evolution was added by Krzysztof.
I strongly suggest Krzysztof Skubis as a coach not only for beginners but moreover for those who are acting as PjM for a long time. With Krzysztof you would be able to learn how to make this better, faster and become reliable partner and team member.

I had the pleasure to participate in coaching sessions for K&K Media Solutions Management delivered by Krzysztof. His great experience and true willingness to help led to reach interesting conclusions who you treat as your own. Surprisingly they exceeded the expected professional area. Krzysztof opened our eyes on what was obvious but still not noticed.

Work with Krzysztofem allowed me to achieve my goals, thanks to his experience and ability to find problems which were worth to deal with. During our sessions he helped mi find several solutions which I implemented in my professional life. Those meetings convinced me to cocaching, when next problems appear I will be glad to work on them with Krzysztof. I sincerely reccomend, I think that Krzysztof helps to find "shortcuts" to the goal.
Cooperation with Krzysztof enables you to believe in belief in your own abilities.

What was valuable for me in cooperation with Krzysztof as a coach was his experience, openness and above all ability to draw my attention to some aspects in area "I do not know that I do not know". Notifying those improves your actions and goals achievements.
When I was Microsoft employee Krzysztof was my formal mentor. His knowledge transfer was not strictly limited to work but covered more areas, for example psychology and sociology. This knowledge was so helpful that I used it at work as well as in my private life. Despite the fact that we do not work together for several years now, due to Krzysztof's great knowledge and trainer's skills I am still his mentee.
Krzysztof is very professional in his coaching. He helped mi understand my strengths and weaknesses as well as to decide which areas to work on. Krzysztof in majority of cases showed me the path to the solution, to the knowledge - this way allowing me prepare for self-development - rather than providing direct answers. I value cooperation with Krzysztof especially due to his ability to build relationship, his commitment, business experience, high personal culture and ethics in professional and personal life.
