Confucius¡¦ leadership

Unlike most modules, there are no notes, slides, models, or matrixes in Leadership and Excellence. What we have done today is based on our empirical experience to learn how to be as a leader and observe how people behave as a leader. And it is all about reflecting.

The more I learn about western thinking of leadership, interesting enough, the knowledge echoes the Confucius¡¦ philosophy which has been taught for more than 2,500 years ¡V if one would like to conquer the world, one has to rule the country first. Yet, before ruling a country, one has to govern the family first. Nevertheless, before governing a family, one has to keep refining himself/herself. In other words, to be a good leader, one has to keep reflecting so as to lead a team, a company, and even a country in a sequential order.

Reflecting what I did right, what I did wrong and learn from failures.

Reflecting what matters to people most.

After the first day in LE module, I would say that leadership is a lifelong obligation to bring the best of self and others.

    Welcome to my world
    Won’t you come on in?
    Miracles I guess
    Still happen now and then

    Step into my heart
    Leave your cares behind
    Welcome to my world
    Built with you in mind

    Knock, and the door will open
    Seek, and you will find
    Ask, and you’ll be given
    The key to this world of mine

    I’ll be waiting here
    With my arms unfurled
    Waoiting just for you
    Welcome to my world.
