Eastern Principles meet Western Psychology
Is leadership simply a set of techniques, or is it something that springs from within each leader? What is the source of leadership, and how can we connect to it? This program, uniting principles from the Japanese arts of Aikido and Kaizen and Western models such as Emotional Intelligence and Positive Psychology, is designed for leaders who wish to access a deeper dimension to their leadership. The event will generate many insights, helping you to find strengths and energy you never knew you had, which you can apply to create maximum positive effects using minimal actions, whether in your own performance or that of your team.
OUR NEW LEADERSHIP EFFECTIVENESS SOLUTION is designed to connect you with the inner source of your leadership and discover new sources of energy in both yourself and your relationships with new ways to manage your energy and energize and motivate others. The training will also give you a powerful set of practical tools to apply its insights in your daily life and leadership.
AIKIDO LEADERSHIP incorporates insights and principles from Aikido, Kaisen, Positive Psychology (the psychology of growth) and Emotional Intelligence into our leadership of self and others. During the program leaders are guided through an in-depth and exhilarating exploration of these fields enabling them to examine their effectiveness in each of these diverse areas. Through a combination of facilitated dialogue and safe, gentle solo and paired exercises based on Aikido movements, leaders will have an opportunity to explore new ways of acting, speaking, listening, and relating to others with increased balance, grace, and effectiveness in everyday situations. In order to bring this new knowledge into the workplace, the principles behind the physical Aikido movements are matched with cutting-edge models in Western psychology to enable leaders to develop proven strategies for continuous and profound personal development.
By the end of the program participants will be able to:
- Connect to the core of their motivation and leadership.
- Find new energy and balance.
- Lead others in ways that are energizing, creative and facilitate growth. Prerequisites None

“After conducting preliminary consultations with Develor, we have come up with an appropriate form of an individual event with our team in the beginning of 2012 which aimed at dissolving different problems of people with various responsibilities, biases and characters. Although part of the participants being sceptic, Develor performed excellently:
- [they] managed to engage and keep the attention and to motivate even the most sceptic ones;
- [they] managed to explain in a comprehensive manner the main specifics of different people, which (sic.) helps everyone not only for good orienteering, but also for good communication with people;
- [they] managed to give details and provide depth in understanding individual peculiarities of key members of the team which was priceless. A proof for [their] professionalism is not only the general positive attitude of the participants, but also the facts that numerous conclusions were made which, I strongly believe, are useful for our structure.”Constantine Shalamanov, Executive Director - Lavena
"At the Hungarian Siemens group a Talent Program has been introduced with the utmost support from the top management. We have selected Develor Consulting for the implementation of the first phase of the Talent program as a result of an open tendering process. The first phase of the Talent program was complemented with a Development Center (DC) so that we would have further information - other than the result of the performance appraisal results - for the compilation of the individual developmental plans for our talents. The challenge for us and for Develor Consulting was not only to deliver a high quality DC, but it was also to define tasks that would measure their talents according to the global Siemens competence system, DC observers would be able to objectively evaluate the talents’ competences based on the noted behavior and the same criteria and to have as much information as possible by the end of DC that can be utilized for the individual plans. The course designer group and consultants of Develor Consulting Ltd. provided an excellent system in assessing our talents. Both in the preparatory phase of tasks and in making Siemens competences measurable, and during the DC itself and in giving feedbacks they have been customer oriented, flexible and professional in carrying out their tasks. They implemented a high quality diagnostics methodology, which provided a result that exceeded our expectations."Gabriella Juhász , Head of HR Functional Center Learning & Development, Talent Acquisition - SIEMENS
"Develor has been of great help to us, especially in terms of skills development. They understand our needs and expectations. They always know what, when and how. We have always received the same high quality service from them: reliability, speed, flexibility. Anything is possible with Develor."Andrea Salfai-Kovács, HR Manager -Tchibo
"We started our cooperation with DEVELOR in 2012 by implementing the Insights Discovery methodology in adidas Slovakia as part of the Franchise & Marketing team support project, which at that time was is a phase of transformation. In the following years our cooperation has gradually extended and the Insights Discovery typology has become part of our internal culture. During 3 years almost 70 employees of the region adidas Group CE East (SK, CZ, HU, PL) from different divisions - from back office to field sales - had participated in the Insights typology based programs. What we deem the greatest benefit is that we are all able to mutually identify gaps in communication and hence improve the speed and effectiveness of both individual and customer related interactions.
On behalf of adidas Group we can only recommend utilization of Insights Discovery and DEVELOR consultants to companies facing similar challenges - complexity of cooperation, integration of generation Y employees... etc. Not only that the tool is easily applicable on the job, but at the same time DEVELOR brings further insights how to make things better."Martina Kovácová, HR Manager - adidas Slovakia
"Our relationship with Develor began 3.5 years ago. They have provided us with high quality, customer-oriented service ever since. This not only refers to their classical “soft” skill training courses, but also to “combined profile” programs such as their workshops based on economization. Following the training, the decrease of our inventory was noticeable even in terms of hard numbers. And this positive effect was lasting."Nándor Terényi, Head of Personnel Development Department - Budapest Electric Works
„On 19.11.2010 we organized a teambuilding event for the Control Management and Network services planning Department employees. The service was provided by Develor Bulgaria… We have chosen Develor as we were looking for more than games and emotions. The main task of the trainers was to make the program not only pleasant and fun but also to provoke specific behaviours and create conditions for serious discussions. As a result, there was a spontaneous and very beneficial discussion amongst participants after they have seen themselves in role-play environment, which was analogical to their everyday work life....The program achieved complete accordance with the set goals and was highly praised by the participants.”Spas Velinov, Network Service Management and Planning Division Manager - Globul
