Cihan Karamık

I'm after the power that gets me out of bed in the morning. I met the Management Center Turkey (MCT) family while tracing what Robinson calls "Oz" and what the Japanese call "Ikigai". I said this is my place, this should be my job; It is a job that makes me happy, that I believe I can do well, that I can gain value when I do it, and on top of that, it coincides with what people expect from me. I discovered this at MCT; in his mission, what he did and what he plans to do. Under the umbrella of MCT, I believe that our paths will cross in some way with anyone who pursues their life purpose and wants to discover and use their full potential.
