4 Life Lessons a Feisty Iguana Taught Me

By LAY HSUAN, LIM   In the short time that I had Iggy, this feisty little creature taught me four key lessons that are applicable for personal development. Be agile to face inevitable challenges When Iggy sleeps in his enclosure, his positions range from laidback style on the ground to precarious acrobatic style on a tree branch. Iguanas are, after all, well known for their limbic agility, especially in swimming and leaping. One time, Iggy did a “parkour” stunt on me by jumping down from my shoulders onto the floor. Concerned if he had suffered any injury when he didn’t move for a few good seconds, he assured me he was fine when he later dashed for the nearest exit. Lessons learnt: The 21st century workplace environment is a volatile and challenging one. As an employee and a business ...

A Brighter Future Requires HR Entrepreneurs

By CHRIS ROEBUCK   “Business savvy” for some in human resources (HR) is likely to be a shock. Many HR practitioners still adopt the paternalistic approach; that they know best and that line management must be trained to conform to HR “best practices” or risk minimisation. After all, we know better what HR needs, don’t we? Even for those who accept the principle of “business savvy”, everyone assumes they are already getting it right. “Oh yes, of course I understand my organisation!” Further assessment of the benefit delivered by HR is often done by HR people, not those on the receiving end.

Mapping Our Stakeholders’ Universe

By JOSEPH TAN   About a decade ago, the only mantra that an organisation needed was “Put Customers First”, then everything else would be aligned and profits would come pouring in. Not so in today’s universe of corporate variables. The field now contains many more players; and even customers themselves may not always be right. If you are a leader, the realisation is this – your pool of followers and associates have just gotten more diverse, more difficult to manage, more difficult to please. And on top of that, the customer still wants to be right. Marcus Buckingham states: “Above all else, a leader must be clear.” No mapping of your universe is possible if you don’t even know how that universe looks like. Hence, before you identify your stakeholders, define the scope and extent of you...
