MY PROGRAMS

EVOLUTIONARY INSIGHT

2-day offsite training

We explore an integral framework of the development of a human being, a leader, and an organization. We examine why soft skills have become essential skills, why leadership maturity is of extreme importance, how it correlates with the levels of organizational development, how to increase self-awareness, build healthier relationships, and enhance trust to help the organization evolve to a new stage of its evolution. 

LEADERSHIP TEAM UPGRADE

6-month leadership effectiveness development program for teams of top-managers

Comprehensive corporate program for increasing leadership awareness and effectiveness, aimed at developing leaders' capabilities to perform decisively in the conditions of VUCA-world, make difficult decisions with authenticity in the face of complex challenges, and build healthy relationships within their teams. 

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

Program for individual leaders who are willing to accomplish an important adaptive change

Based on the Integral Coaching® method (Integral Coaching Canada), the program enables leaders to become more aware of their current approach to situations, to see new possibilities and then build sustainable new competencies to achieve outcomes that deeply matter to them.

by raising their own "ceiling," leaders create space for the development of their teams and the whole company

leaders grow new leaders

"Climbing the career ladder for many years, you may think that you have reached your peak... only to find many new doors in front of you. Then suddenly, you realize that you have more questions than answers. And you don't know which door to open, which direction to go, which path is truly yours. Vytas has become my guide on the journey of rethinking my achievements and searching for new horizons. The coaching program helped me open the new doors and give a look not only into them but also inside myself, to see the new perspectives and what is very important - to get the tools for further transformation."

Oxana Sokolova 

Journalist, TV-producer, author, and hostess of the "Facts of the Week" project (ICTV)

"Vytautas helped me chart a clear path along which we walked together during several months of coaching. During this journey, I was repeatedly convinced of how important it is to have a "mirror" - a mentor or coach who helps you see yourself "from the outside" and define your own path of transformation and walk it. 

His life wisdom and a profound empathic ability to find the insights that are truly important to me have helped me deconstruct some of my inner barriers, widen the horizon of my worldview and discover the new sources of creative transformational energy."

Yuriy Verhovod

Founder and CEO of "SVOI" Holding

"Our thinking is arranged in a way that we think in templates, without even noticing it ourselves. The Integral Coaching program led by Vytas helped me see this frame, remember what my gift is, "wake up from my slumber," and find my own world. Regular practices during the program focused on different areas have revived my faith in the interconnectedness of the human world: nature, body, spirit, consciousness, energy flows. 

If you think you are ready to be honest with yourself, the first thing to do is find your mentor. It is unlikely that you will be able to go through this path on your own. 

I am sincerely grateful to Vytas for believing and guiding me through this challenging new path. And, if you are lucky to have Vytas as your mentor, you can consider that you got a chance to rewrite your book of life from the very beginning."

Klaudia Shevelyuk

Sustainable development consultant, Co-founder of the NGO "Responsible Future"

"Meeting Vytautas is an acquaintance that sets things straight. It is a depth in simplicity, wisdom in an accessible form, a person who can get through to your heart. He helps to systematize, elaborate, globalize all knowledge, patchy moments, episodes of life - as if fitting together pieces of a jigsaw puzzle - which makes the picture whole as a result. 

He helps to see the beauty and harmony of the integral frame of life and interactions with other people. Everything he does is about how to mend the relationships not only on this planet but with yourself and the universe."

Alena Goncharenko-Isak

Leader and the founder of the NGO "Educational Center "AGAPE," master of pedagogy, educator, teacher, mother of three

"A personal transformation program enables you to open up your heart, balance your heart and mind, and see the path in which your calling and your soul will be able to actualize as fully and completely as possible. This program is for those who are faced with the questions "What's happening to me?", "How to make changes and engage in my activities to the fullest?", "How to make my dreams come true?". It shows the growth opportunities and determines on which stage of development you are now and where to go next."

Lina Strygina

CEO of "HR Consulting" Organisational Development Center (Kazakhstan), trainer-consultant, executive coach, integral approach practitioner, VUCA-expert, psychologist

"Vytas has been working for 20 years in an international corporate environment, so he really knows "the game," he really knows what corporate environment means, what big money, big business, and different interests mean, and how to bring human values to that world. That's what we really need today because the world is sinking in greed, sinking in egoism, and we simply need people who are able to transcend that and bring back deeper human values. So if you work with Vytas, I guarantee that you will find the deeper human values and higher stages of development with a thorough understanding of these areas of the corporate world."
