Vaska Zaykova, GO IT! Academy - Lead, Raiffeisen Bank International
LeadIN has been our trusted partner since 2018. Their Authentic Leadership program was part of 3 internal learning & development programs (for Agile coaches, Business Analysts and Data Scientists). More than 120 Raiffeisen Group employees (Austria and CEE) went through LeadIN workshops with a focus on successfully leading self and others towards higher performance and achieving the best results. The workshops were tailor-made and adapted to the specific needs of the respective target groups and, most importantly, have showed a visible impact on the improvement of the leadership skills of key employees throughout the whole Raiffeisen group. The feedback received from our participants showed that they valued not only the quality and relevance of the contents but, moreover, the attention and care they received during the workshop. My feedback as organizer and person responsible for the programs is incredibly positive: smoothless and beneficial collaboration before, during and after each workshop, meeting all our requirements. LeadIN has already contributed to our leadership transformation and I am looking forward to future projects together!

During my professional life I have quite often faced the situation when I was asked to change my attitude; in my case, not to see some ideas in a negative light and instead of pointing out what will go wrong to provide a better idea or solution. The word “negative” was glued to my name. Honestly, I was trying to change my behaviour and provide stellar ideas, but it took me a lot of energy and I was not really successful. I considered myself as somebody who was not good enough. Right at the beginning of this program I learnt that my talent is to see what can possibly go wrong, and what the possible consequences could be. I finally understood that there is nothing wrong with me, I am just different. This program taught me to be more confident about myself, confident about what I am doing; it taught me to be more balanced. I learnt to face challenging or stressful situations more easily. Everything I learnt I applied even to my personal life and made it brighter.

It’s the best development program I’ve ever absolved. I don’t think that this program has a competitor on the current Slovak market. It’s very useful, deep and caring. Thank you very much for being part of the program – is was an adventurous year’s journey into the depths of my soul and I really think it was successful. Thanks again, girls!

I found the Atairu Authentic Leadership program just when I needed it the most... Every meeting in life has a meaning and I can confirm this too. I deeply thank my friend, who enthusiastically told me about this program over a glass of wine. After a year, I can say it was the best development program I have ever experienced. It was a combination of expertise and humanity while dealing with issues that everyone can face, and those issues got a direction and were solved. I also greatly appreciated the possibility of individual work, where it was possible to deeper analyse some of the current topics that emerged during the year’s program. I recommend it to everyone who has begun to seek or feel the need to find answers to questions of how to become not only a better leader, but also a better person.

The Atairu Authentic Leadership program is not a typical program focused on individual management techniques, but it’s much more a probe into the soul of the leader who is increasingly facing bigger challenges in today’s world. It’s been a great benefit for me to have the opportunity to experience this program and to get to know myself from a different point of view through the people who were part of this journey. This program is an excellent way to start a journey that will be incredibly unique to everyone. Its great benefit is also the opportunity to meet new people, create new relationships and learn about stories that can support you to move forward. I personally got to know my passions better and came closer to understanding my deep purpose in life. I am aware that this journey is still only at the beginning…

I would like to express my gratitude to Eva and Erika who supported me during an amazing journey of self-transformation. The workshops in the program were developed in a way that, as a participant, you learn key topics in the best possible way which allows you to efficiently deep-dive into each subsequent theme. Intervals between interactions allow you not only to ‘digest’ material learnt but also to practice it in real life long enough to become comfortable with the NEW you in a good way! I found it very beneficial that Eva and Erika were also available for one-on-one sessions to provide feedback and support if required. I would highly recommend the Atairu Leadership program for all who would like to get to a new level of personal development!

The 10–months Authentic Leadership program, for me personally, fulfilled its meaning. Thanks to participating in this program, I realized a lot of things and started to work on them. After a very long time, I created time for myself, the space to get to know myself and understand my needs better, and I entered a long journey toward a more meaningful and free life in accordance with my values. On top of that, I became a part of a wonderful community that is greatly enriching. THANK YOU.
