Founded by Valentina Kislaya in 2015, Phoenix Leaders is a leadership and executive training consultancy, which works with both existing and future leaders to challenge their leadership styles, and develop the skills and mental resilience they need to thrive in today’s fast-paced environment. In 2018 Phoenix Leaders established Cyprus' first private members' club for established and emerging leaders in the local business community.
Our expert team understands that in order for leaders to respond successfully to the demands of their roles and the continuously evolving marketplace in which they operate, executives require training tailored to their own individual situations.
We use business psychology, corporate experience and neuroscience to build our training sessions, tailoring the courses to fit our clients’ vision, values and strategy. As such, every training is slightly different, delivered in-house and shaped to fit the needs of our clients’ organisation and team.
In line with our vision of modern leadership, we launched Cyprus’ first private members’ club in 2018. The Club is an emerging concept in the Cypriot business community, providing a unique environment for leaders that helps facilitate dialogue, whilst also nurturing the leaders of the future.
