- About us
Much has been said about the importance of the management team in the life of a business. This is undoubtedly the most important asset of the company, perhaps ahead of only one in importance: the knowledge that the company possesses. And if both of these assets develop in unison and with the same tenacity, the chance of success increases many times over. True, an important condition for this is the presence of a team, that is a group of talented, educated and hard-working associates.
The general director of the Vipservice holding Irina Solovieva does not believe in rope courses and joint drinking to build a team: neither the first nor the second can help managers with different levels of knowledge and experience unite, in her opinion. “I believe that the basis for unification and subsequent effective collaboration is the equal knowledge of each member of the group about the basic processes and rules of business functioning.
For a long time in the holding, the managers were of an unequal level of knowledge, which prevented them from really rallying on the way to achieving the goal, and the goals were also very different. It took more than three years and a lot of effort for such a team to appear. The internal training program for top managers, organized by me in cooperation with the Higher School of Economics, plays an important role on the path to continued cohesion. I am immensely grateful to the shareholders of the holding, who ideologically and financially supported my initiative and remained faithful to it, continuing to finance even in the most difficult time of the pandemic.
In September 2021, 15 managers of the holding will receive new MBA diplomas. I was worried when I accompanied them to school with my colleagues, I look forward to the magical moment of the hats flying into the sky at the graduation ceremony.
Of course, with all the possible everyday convenience (teachers come to the office), such training is hard work and a lot of work. You need motivation. It is also a big investment for the company in its employee, which means that those who are already the best today should be chosen. I think that getting to know them will be interesting. About what force motivates each of the students of the first course, what they dream about and what the top managers of Vipservice who study under the program tirelessly believe in - in our next posts ... ”says Irina.
“For me, MBA is the acquisition of skills of a different level of managerial competence, an approach to management from different points of view, the ability to find shorter business solutions, change the approach to processes, and the ability to build strategies for distant horizons.
Choosing Vipservice in my favor means for me that the company recognizes my value as a leader and is willing to invest in my development. This is valuable!"
"We have to work not 12 hours a day, and head."
“For me, the MBA is a new stage in my personal and professional development.
Vipservice made a choice in determining the students in my favor and this means that he trusts me. And trust is the foundation of any relationship! "
"Hiring and retaining the best people is more important for a leader's success than any other factor."
“For me, MBA is an opportunity to gain new knowledge and skills necessary for effective work, allowing me to identify weaknesses in my own knowledge for further development.
The Vipservice management made a choice in my favor, which means that they see me as a prospect for further cooperation. This is inspiring!”
"It's not about the number of hours spent at the desk, but the productivity of those hours."
