I take care that Vimana keeps its promises to the Clients, partners, and its employees. I think that behind the trade contracts, balances, protocols, and reports, there is always an individual human being. A client who put their trust in us and who counts on us and our help, or a co-worker who believes that their work will be appreciated. It is extremely important not to abuse this trust.
Several years ago, I was still following the orders of my superiors. On the one hand, it was a convenient situation that relieved me from a huge portion of responsibility. On the other hand, I would always imagine how to do these things better. I often said that if I had had the possibility, I would have done things more effectively, efficiently, and in an easier way. When we were establishing Vimana, friends told me to do things the way I imagined. Remember about your clients, remember about your co-workers, you have a free hand…
I’ve been working in a service for many years now. Clients usually come to us when they have a problem, so there is often stress involved. Stress can be motivating. It gives you adrenaline. I like it when, in spite of difficulties and inevitable problems, an organization works smoothly. I love this moment when I again hear a calm voice of my client, which means they are convinced that they have made a good choice.
