    Vivi Cahyadi Himmel - CEO of AltoVita - Let's Talk Leadership

    Vivi Cahyadi Himmel - CEO of AltoVita - Let's Talk Leadership

    On this week’s episode of ‘Let’s Talk Leadership’, Sandra is joined by Vivi Cahyadi Himmel, CEO of AltoVita and one of the Top 100 Tech Asian Stars in 2020. AltoVita is an end-to-end solution for modern travelers, making sure customers can maintain their healthy, active lifestyle while abroad. 

    AltoVita has absolutely flourished during the pandemic, almost tripling in size. Vivi has some great advice for the budding entrepreneur and shares her journey which has taken her across Australia, the USA, Hong Kong and now London. 

    Vivi shared lots of great insights into her leadership skills and how being an open and caring leader has worked really well for her, she is very keen on listening and filtering that down from top and taking everyone on her journey. Sandra and Vivi chat about how hiring into small companies means you really have to sell it to the employees and drive the business dream forward. Leadership is not always smooth sailing and you have to be able to act quickly and respond to that, so it is key to have a robust hiring process. 

    Vivi says she has found it a challenge that as the business grows, she needs champions for each department so the business doesn’t bottleneck, with her being the decision-maker. She recommends that leaders show that they genuinely care and want to learn a little bit of what everyone is doing, and gain some understanding.  This is a really inspiring listen, please let us know what you think!

He shares some advice for moving into the commercial world: be ready for a learning curve and think about the impact of what you are doing but remember you have transferable skills!
     
    He has some really interesting insights about attracting the right people to work for him and Panaseer have done loads of work on their hiring process as the first impression of a start-up is so important. The company is really big on investing in the team, growing their capacity and capabilities, and ensuring their teams can bring their whole and best self to work.  
     
    Elly and Charaka also chat about managing stress and pressure. Especially, how vital it is that you look after yourself, understand you’ll never be able to do everything, and the ability to delegate. Charaka and his team went on a 3-day retreat to practice being aware of your thoughts and feelings, and the power of perspective on your mindset.  This is a really interesting and inspiring listen, we hope you enjoy it!
