Tailored journal is a page of short illustrations of our daily and very bright life. The journal was launched in August 2009 according to the recommendations of our regular customers. All the reviews mentioned in the Journal are taken anonymously according to the results of the trainings.
The classic of Russian literature Maxim Gorky once said: “The further, the easier modern technology turns fiction and speculation, fantasies and hypotheses – into reality, arming a person in his struggle for life.”
Probably therefore, we began cooperation with the largest and oldest Russian universal online store, which has long been included in the list of the top 10 most expensive companies in the Russian segment of the Internet according to Forbes, it is from its heart – the technical division that ensures the uninterrupted operation of the largest market place in all directions.
The work turned out to be expectedly specific and practical. The abundance of clarifying questions, discussions and different points of view pleasantly surprised and made the program alive and as close as possible to life and its topical issues. Well, by good tradition, after receiving feedback from the participants, we consistently moved on to discussing the development of cooperation.
Feedback from program participants:
“Everything was new and interesting, told without water, in a simple and understandable language, with answers to questions”
“I really liked the presentation of the material, examples and situations”
“Thank you for the opportunity to consult on topical issues!”
Any crisis times are times of opportunity. People are looking for opportunities. Or they don’t. Especially if they feel uncertain, not prepared, do not feel the support of the employer.
Tailored formed and worked out the comprehensive program designed to prepare our partner teams in a timely manner for bold but thoughtful solutions that will strengthen positions and help increase market share in a difficult period.
The program is a balanced mixed format, which consists of 3 full-time modules and 4-6 in online format. Modules are interchangeable and adapt as much as possible to Tailored-style realities.

Tailored launched a new format for the creative workshop “Right Hemisphere Drawing,” which allows to develop the capabilities of the brain at the level of hard skills – professional competencies that can be directly used in work, clearly demonstrate, evaluate and test.
The potential of the brain of an ordinary person is scientifically proven to be less than 20% involved. Therefore, the remaining 80% of our main resource remains annoyingly unused. That is why in our new program we have prepared a set of exercises aimed at developing additional brain capabilities, including workshops for activating the right hemisphere and synchronizing the work of the brain hemispheres.
After all, when we activate the capabilities of both brain’ hemispheres it is easier and faster for us to make decisions, create new ones, adapt to changes and maximize the use of information

Tailored began the successful cooperation with Europe’s largest producer of phosphorus-containing fertilizers, phosphoric and sulfuric acids, as well as Russia’s leader in fertilizer, ammonia and ammonium nitrate production.
In addition to Russia, our new partner supplies its products to the countries of Western Europe, Asia, Africa and America, has its own port on its territory, and the railway car fleet has more than 6,000 cars of different types.
Nevertheless, the peculiarity of the development of cooperation was that we communicated on-line only, since personal contacts are strictly limited due to the strategic status of our new partner and epidemiological restrictions. For the first time, we did not have a single personal meeting – absolute on-line!
But this did not prevent us from holding a series of online workshops, earning high marks from the Client and receiving new orders and a springboard for further work)
continued the successful project interrupted by the pandemic to develop the leaders of the regional technical teams of one of the largest Russian territorial generating companies (TGC) created in the process of reforming RAO “UES” of Russia.
Our joint experience of cooperation with the heads of Company’ units of the Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kaluga, Kursk, Lipetsk, Oryol, Ryazan, Smolensk, Tambov and Tula regions, who are responsible for the work of the 12,000-strong army of specialists, brought open discussions on hot topics, direct equal dialogue of wise and experienced leaders, and most importantly, strengthened the conviction that the potential of Russian regions can be It is people, their wisdom and a thorough approach to work, that are the wealth on which the well-being and stability of many of Russia’s largest regional businesses are based.
The feedback of the participants there is always specific and concise:

Working in non-standard conditions is always a springboard for the development of hidden reserves. At the end of August, Tailored gave an unusual start to the target program for preparing the Russia’s largest gas distribution enterprise’ young reserves and immediately received the necessary result.
Our creative program “Up to the sky” allowed young people not only to understand the purpose and team work, but also to take responsibility for creating their own community, as well as for forming their own information channels, which was the wish goal of our Customer. In addition, they managed to present our ideas, drive pros and cons through the “world cafe” format and, of course, received unforgettable emotions) After all, it is creative experiments that stimulate the proactivity of teams in practice!
To train those who evaluate the best in the world – this can really be considered the World Major League in training, and in people development in general. In the summer of 2021, the trainers of Tailored won the tender and began training the team that organizes the largest world “Olympiс games” in the field of professional skills in Russia – “World Skills”.

Feedback from program participants:
“Active type of training with different formats, that allows you to keep your attention”
“I have received a lot of useful and necessary information. Of course, the training was useful! ”
We have always told our colleagues who invest mainly in their top team that most often real service is not provided by top-managers, but by ordinary people who collect goods, solve difficult situations with customers, smile or do not smile at the consumer every day, and it is precisely such personnel who need to be regularly trained and not discount on them with “faceless and mass online training”. ” Thanks to the wise and flexible companies that feel it themselves.
Tailored successfully completed the first stage of a large-scale adaptive customer service program for warehouse workers of the fastest developing retailer in Russia and the largest domestic player on the market for construction and repair’ goods.
All this is especially relevant today, when each person is stressed to one degree or another, tired of lockdowns, when nerves are at the limit, and confidence in the future and in the well-being of loved ones is not the same as before.
Increasingly, everyone has become less tolerant, and the people who work with a large human flow get the most. The big “traffic” has a great accumulative effect not only in moments of negative emotions, but also in human energy, fatigue, burnout.
That is why we adapted the classic service program to the realities faced by warehouse employees, namely complex conflict and stressful situations with customers, drivers, foremen, receivers, etc. And judging by the reviews, we expect not only to improve the quality of the service, which the consumer will immediately feel, but also to increase the involvement and satisfaction of staff, reduce burnout, and therefore flow, which is traditional for warehouse specifics.
Feedback from Program’ participants:
“It was very helpful to know how to get out of a situation!”
“Everything was clear”
“I would advise my colleagues to take part in this training, as it is useful not only in work, but also in everyday life”.

Tailored acted as a provider of support for the mentoring processes of the largest oil company in the country.
Mentoring is interpreted differently, for someone it is manegement in a foreign manner, for someone a type of guru-management, for most it is a conditionally tangible term. But not for our partner.
And the fact is not even that special booklets were prepared for the mentor with a detailed clear description of the tasks, process and algorithms, but also that we were given the task of preparing not only mentors for mentoring, but also their mentees. Systemic and attention to details from all sides – always distinguishes professionals.

Tailored successfully and expeditiously transformed the training programs together with the industry leader among the country’s gas distribution organizations thanks to three key factors.
We were able to fully “get comfortable in the “remote training operation” due to simple but thoughtful solutions:
the platform flexibility, when Tailored clients have the opportunity to choose a site, starting from exclusive development of Tailored IT partners to internal corporate platforms or generally available familiar options,
the correct bet on interactivity, and not on the “webinar product”, which allowed us to transform programs quickly and make them alive and effective,
team proactivity and co-creation with clients, who, no matter what , maintain the rhythm of the business and do not waste time.
Tailored directed and held a special event, combining a master class and mindfulness, for a large national sales team, one of Europe’s most respected brands with a century of history.
Our long-standing partner has set us the difficult task of holding a special joint master class for his entire key sales team, which has more than 70 experienced tech-sellers in such a way that the event becomes the brightest ending point in the corporate forum.
Starting to prepare a program for people who have extensive experience in sales, we realized that it was necessary to conduct not only a useful interactive master class, but also maximize the huge potential of participants from different regions, and focus on the mindfulness of key approaches to working with clients who as a result, the participants themselves formulated and “sold” to each other. This is what the Customer emphasized as the most successful reception, thanks to us for the bright and successful large event. Mindfulness is needed by everyone, especially the most experienced people need it.
Tailored began a successful partnership with the largest diversified energy holding, the only Russian electricity export-import operator.
Despite the fact that the geography of the supply of electricity to our new partner includes Finland, Belarus, Lithuania, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, South Ossetia, Kazakhstan, China and Mongolia, we began cooperation in the very heart of Russia, with a unit that guarantees electricity supplier in Vladimir area.
“Reconnaissance in battle” turned out to be the first priority — almost the entire top management of the Company came to Tailored’s training with very specific questions on the financial aspects of the activity, and within two days, he examined our cases and examples with our trainer, demonstrating excellent preparation, awareness and long-term prospects for each other teamwork.
At the end of 2019, Tailored became a partner and member of the Finnish-Russian Chamber of Commerce, which is the leading expert organization in bilateral trade between Finland and Russia and connects Finnish know-how with the capabilities of the Russian market.
Participation in the FRCC, which includes more than 700 Finnish
and Russian member companies and all interested in the development of bilateral
business, is logical, as it was Tailored many years ago opened the page of
interaction of the largest Finnish companies (such as Prisma, Lindstrom, Sokos
Hotels and others) in training in Russia.

Helsinki with Ms. Yaana Recolainen, Director General of the Finnish-Russian
Chamber of Commerce, are encouraging and open the new Scandinavian horizons of

a good reason: at some point, our seminar turned into real debate or even an
The skill of clear presentation of your thoughts, experience and practice to the audience has always been an important tool for promoting your name in medicine. And now this competence has significantly grown in importance, because the preparation of a competent presentation that can convince management, colleagues, patients, students, conference visitors without excitement and fuss is not only an effective opportunity for promotion and development, but also a vital skill of a modern medical specialist.
Successively promoting the humanitarian program for employees of medical
institutions, Tailored company has proposed a new set of practical
technologies that have long been in business, but have little
involvement in the medical environment.
The result is new successful program “Effective Presentation Skills and

new developments and treatment plans to colleagues, potential investors
and of course patients.

The British audience is considered one of the most demanding in the world, especially in everything related to training and consulting. Even the universally recognized American guru is often not an edict, despite a similar language and cultural origins. But we managed to change this stereotype.

Tailored began working with a new Partner, a subsidiary of the country’s largest oil company, in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Our new Partner receives projects that are at the initial stage of implementation. Each new asset has its own specifics, due to various factors, including the considerable remoteness of the deposits from the existing infrastructure, complex geological structure and natural and climatic conditions. It is the latter circumstance that we attribute a choice of a program realization – directly opposite the Upper Garden in Peterhof, which has become an additional source of inspiration for us and the participants of the program.
Our Partner project managers must select the most efficient way to develop the deposit, organize the infrastructure, form a team, build relationships with all stakeholders … This is what we did in the game format and with a great enthusiasm. The customer had so many questions that we ended up giving feedback very late in the evening … but with a great mood!

We are very grateful to Tailored Customers and Partners for their support and appreciation of our daily work, and to each of Tailored employee and coach for the continuous improvement of our already high standards of work. We will not dwell on what has been already achieved!
Tailored together with its partners held a jubilee meeting of the Motivational Club, which turned a year. The event was hosted by Baltika Brewery Company.
The evening began with a tour on the industrial sites of “Baltika-St Petersburg” factory. At the end of the tour, we proceeded to the main part. The first presentation was given by Nina Illarionova, the head of the department of compensations and benefits of the company, who spoke about the policy of rewarding in Baltika and presented 2 practical cases for group discussions. After solving the cases, we broke for the degustation of Baltika’s products and celebrated the anniversary of the Motivational Club, that miraculously coincided with the Oktoberfest holiday.

Tailored began a successful cooperation with the leading international forest industry concern, one of the few companies in the industry that combines innovation, manufacturability and environmental responsibility. The company has about 22,000 employees and is represented in 67 countries around the world.
After completing all the qualifying stages and conducting “trial” trainings, Tailored began to fulfill the set tasks for the development of personnel on several regional sites, working both with employees engaged in interaction with customers, and with the support functions and production workers.
Feedback from participants:
“I liked absolutely the whole training!”;
“The information was given in different ways – you will not get bored …”;
“The coach knows how to involve all the participants. Many practical tasks!”
Warm summer days did not reduce the working efficiency of partners and customers of Tailored, contrary to all seasonal trends they provoked unprecedented activity in various regions of Russia, inspiring us to new ideas and new trends.
One of such trends was the shift in focus from the traditional target group for training and development – middle and top management for young people. Our partners began to pay more and more attention to their Personnel reserves, young regional units, youth assets.
A variety of training for young promising specialists and managers has been supplemented by the creation of formalized structures operating according to rules clearly formulated by participants.
A bright event in the end of the summer was the Youth Meeting of the new partner of Tailored, the country’s largest shipbuilding company. During the suburban event, the participants not only successfully passed the training and team building program, but also took an active part in the contest of their own ideas and projects.
Recently we discovered that our magazine has permanent (!) and very respected readers. It was a surprise, because we thought the magazine was just a news almanac of our work. But the news was accompanied by a request – to report not only our news, but also interesting cases from practice. We react quickly.
This month we came across an interesting case. Our long-time partner FMCG Corporation with a worldwide reputation and brands No. 1 in its industry, made another order in Tailored: leadership and management training for its elite team, the Marketing Department in Russia.
The situation was not easy from the very beginning: there was no direct contact with the internal Customer due to a foreign business trip, the number of training topics in the internal order that came 2 days before the training by e-mail, as well as their range could include up to 6 full program. It was impossible to expand the program (move it, split into parts) – time is short, the experience and requests of the participants were also very different.
To solve the case successfully, we used 3 approaches. First, creative focus tasks based on the knowledge of the specifics of the group’s work and revealing their creative potential. Secondly, brainstorming with team dynamics and the desire to find the right solutions on their own. Next, cases in which it was necessary to apply the tools learned in the training. The group was responsive on 100%. As a result, the “miracle” was accomplished, the customer is satisfied, the desired results are obtained.
Feedback from participants:
“We achieved almost impossible: we discussed all the topics interesting to the group”;
“Key points are covered with details, a lot of teamwork, interesting, dynamic”;
May 21, 2013 we held a regular meeting of the MOTIVATIONAL CLUB. The subject of the meeting was a special and topical “HOW TO ACHIEVE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE INNER CUSTOMER?”. The topic is important primarily due to the fact the quality of the partnership with the internal Customer directly affects the work efficiency of the expert on compensation and benefits or HR employee in the company and the opportunity to realize their ideas and potential.
The speech and practical case “INVOLVED MANAGEMENT IN HR PROJECTS” were given by Ekaterina Rumyantseva, who has been heading of the Personnel Directorate of CJSC “KBR-East” since 2010. “KBR” – in the world it is more than 50 thousand of workers in 47 countries of the world. According to the results of work in 2011, Ekaterina was recognized as the MVP in KBR.
Practical session of the meeting with specific tools on the topic “How to achieve partnership with the internal customer on the example of HR?” was presented by Konstantin Kora, managing partner of Tailored and co-founder of the Motivational Club.
Representatives of the largest businesses of Russia and the world such as: Azimut Hotels, OJSC Kirov Factory, Heinz, Okey, LSR Group, Prisma, Liybimy Kray, Sokos, TPV, Bank Aleksandrovsky, Atlas Copco, UPM-Kymmene and others traditionally took part in the discussion.
Having successfully having passed all the stages of selection Tailored was chosen as the main supplier of training for one of the most modern European retailers in Russia, the market leader in customer service quality, assortment and growth rates.
A multi-level long-term development program of the team assumes a special focus on managerial competencies at all levels of management of a rapidly developing retailer. Top managers of the Company have already taken part in Tailored programs. Feedback from participants:
“A lot of new, fresh look at familiar things!”;
“Simplicity in the perception of the material, a variety of tasks and forms of work”;
March 14, 2013 Tailored held a regular meeting of the Russian Motivational Club. Given the recent changes in the legislation and the relevance of the renegotiation of contracts, the leader of the interrogation of members of the Club was a topic of voluntary medical insurance. The particularity of the meeting was the lack of VHI providers, which allowed an impartial and unbiased assessment of the situation. Our task is practical solutions.
We invited two speakers-practitioners:
Tatiana Baksha, corporate manager for compensation and benefits of the company “OBR – Orkla Brands Russia”, who shared practical experience and offered participants practical cases. A subjects of her speech: “Unification of the approach to VHI under the conditions of the merger of companies”.
