How do you measure success, what does success means to you? Success, to me, is measured by the extent of peace of mind. The majority considers success to be equivalent to victory. However, victory should not be the primary focus when we are pursuing our goals. Obtaining what one wants by fair means is far more crucial to achieving success, as it helps to contribute to the long-term happiness of others.
How do you keep employees engaged and motivated? I follow a “Three F’s” principle to encourage employee engagement. The first one is“fairness”-encouraging employees to achieve goals with procedural and outcome fairness. The second one is“firmness”-this refers to the importance of team building. Teamwork should never be understated. The last one is“faith”-leaders should establish an intimate relationship with their employees, which will facilitate their loyalty and trust to the organisation.
How do you manage work life balance? In order to relieve from stress, I enjoy playing golf and the saxophone in my leisure time.Fresh air and music help me to feel relaxed. I also walk with BB, my beagle dog, on sunny days. On occasion, enjoying some wine can be a perfect way to end a holiday.
