Leadership Lessons from West Point

Disciplined people who engage in disciplined thought and who take disciplined action: this framework captures much of what separates greatness from mediocrity. The Army has long embraced this concept with its own framework of leadership: Be-Know-Do. This framework runs through these chapters, like a thread of DNA.

The beauty of this book lies in the dualities of leadership—knowing when to follow and when to not follow, the responsibility to question and the responsibility to execute, dedication to mission first and dedication to your comrades above all. These dualities highlight the point that disciplined action does not mean rote action. Disciplined action means that you begin with a framework of core values (be), you meld those values with knowledge and insight (know), and finally you make situation-specific decisions to act (do).  Leadership, the chapters in this book teach, begins not with what you do, but who you are.

Vision for Environmental Leadership Initiatives for Asian Sustainability


The United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD) was proposed by then Japanese prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi, at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, Johannesburg 2002. In the same year a resolution designating the years 2005 to 2014 as the UNDESD was unanimously adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. Japan developed a UNDESD action plan in 2006.

The action plan addresses the importance of implementing sustainable development programs at higher education institutions as a first step. In June 2007 the 21st Century Environmental Nation Strategy and Innovation 25 was approved by the Japanese Cabinet. Both initiatives address the need for training future environmental leaders with the ability to meet environmental challenges both in Japan and overseas. In the same year leaders from countries across Asia, meeting at the East Asia Summit (EAS), high level meetings between China and Japan, and other meetings, agreed to work together toward developing environmental leadership in Asia.

Before 2030, What is Self Leadership?


Self leadership is the modern version of Socrates command to “Know thyself”.  Self leadership is Neo taking the red pill and exercising choice rather than being controlled by the matrix.

Self leadership as having a developed sense of who you are, what you can do, where you are going coupled with the ability to influence your communication,  emotions and behaviour on the way to getting there (Bryant, Kazan 2012). Another definitions is, “the process by which you influence yourself to achieve your objectives.”

Do You Represent a Sustainable Generation?


These days everyone is talking about sustainability: politicians, researchers, activists, business leaders, and journalists. More and more companies recognize that sustainability offers the potential to make their operations more robust and efficient.

But while CEOs widely acknowledge the importance of sustainability, does the next generation of business leaders consider it as vital for future success? A study conducted by British Sky Broadcasting Group among 751 graduate trainees, MBA students and high potential middle managers revealed that tomorrow’s business leaders identify themselves as “the first sustainable generation”. Quite a statement – what does it mean, and do you think it’s true?

Having grown up with issues like environmental protection and social responsibility, young professionals feel knowledgeable about, and comfortable with, sustainability. Although a whopping 96% of respondents plan on being involved with sustainability in their careers, they take a more pragmatic approach when considering attractiveness of potential employers.

10 Essential Business Leadership Skills

Are you a leader?


Truth be told, not everyone is a leader. It’s just not meant for everyone. And that’s OK. But more people are leaders than they realize. Leadership takes on many different faces; it’s just a question of understanding how you lead and why.

Here are 10 key business leadership skills you’ll need to succeed as a leader:

1. Lead By Example. You can’t be an aloof leader, someone that’s never around and incapable of getting your hands dirty. One of the best ways to lead is by example – pitching in where needed, lending a helping hand, and making sure that the work you do is clearly understood by your team.

2. Passion. A leader without passion isn’t a leader. He’s a paper pusher. Or a taskmaster. Or a government employee… Passion drives a lot, and you can inspire so much in others through your own passion and enthusiasm. That doesn’t mean you have to be constantly cheery, it means you’ve got to believe in what you’re doing and what your company is doing.

3. Be Organized. A disorganized leader isn’t leading, he’s chasing his own tail. Disorganization breeds nothing but more disorganization. If you’re frazzled and messy, your team will be too. When you’re organized you’ll be much more productive and so will everyone else.     Continue reading 10 Essential Business Leadership Skills

Economy Of Indonesia


Indonesia is a country that contains great economic potential; a potential that has not gone unnoticed to part of the international community. Indonesia – Southeast Asia’s largest economy – is increasingly mentioned as an appropriate candidate to be included in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) as the country is rapidly showing signs of similar newly advanced economic development. Recently, a new set of emerging economies has gained public attention.

Members of this set are countries that contain promising markets with diverse economies, reasonably sophisticated financial systems and fast-growing populations. These countries are grouped under the acronym CIVETS (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa), and its combined Gross Domestic Product is predicted to account for half the global economy by 2020.

The Proposer’s Opening Remarks

Great Wall Of China
Great Wall Of China

During the boom of the last decade, many economic pundits embraced the long view, arguing that because China and India dominated the world economy in the 17th century, they could do so again in the 21st century. Ignoring the messy centuries in between, these forecasters seemed to be saying that 17th-century performance guarantees future results. That is, of course, not how economic cycles work.

Normally, what is hot one decade cools in the next, and this is what we are seeing in the emerging world today. After a torrid decade, the emerging world is cooling off, relative to the developed world, and the largest emerging markets—Brazil, Russia, India and China, hyped as the BRICs—are cooling off relative to unsung new stars, like the Philippines, Nigeria and lately Mexico.

This cooling phase will be particularly dramatic, because of the unprecedented scope and pace of the boom in the last decade. Starting with the highly accommodative American monetary policy stance in 2003, in response to the tech bust, a tide of easy money fuelled a new investor enthusiasm for emerging nations that in turn had cleaned up their act following the serial crises that had afflicted many of them in the 1990s. Over the next four years, the average annual GDP growth rate in emerging nations doubled to 7.5%. By 2007, with three small exceptions, every economy in the emerging world was growing, and more than 100 were growing faster than 5%. This kind of synchronised global boom had never happened before, so far as the records show, and it is not likely to happen again.
