In the words of our Principal Dr Marcus Lim based in Kuching, Sarawak:
#Leadership101 #BreakingYourBoundaries features two of the #BestLeaders in #Kuching #Sarawak, brought to you by a team of #Young, #Hungry #ICP #FYP #Business #Students from Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak and Nation Building School!
Speaker 1: Amelia Lim Wen Ching shared #Leadership tips from her experience as #Founder of #SuperWorms, an unconventional enterprise that uses worms as a source for economic activity creation and as a solution for food waste management:
Tip 1. Be open to talk about mistakes and failures, and be sure to fix them if possible; if not, quickly apologize, learn, and use the experience gained to improve before moving forward and leading your team to success.
Tip 2. Why compete if we can collaborate? It’s cost and time friendly, so take the lead and create collaboration opportunities!
Tip 3. Know what attitude you currently have, and shape it positively. You have Japanese “can do” attitude if you believe that if one can do, I can do; if no one can do, I must do. You have Malaysian “boleh” attitude if you believe that if one can do, let him do; if no one can do, what can I do. You have Singaporean “kiasu kiasi” attitude if you believe that if nobody do, I better not do; if everyone do, I die die must do. Needless to say, your attitude is contagious as a leader, so form good attitudes, wisely!
Speaker 2: Caitlyn Ong led the way in giving back as a Swinburne Sarawak graduate by sharing her experience leading as Google Business Group Chapter Manager and #President of #SwinburneEntrepreneurshipClub:
Tip 4. Know and invest in yourself to become the best version of yourself. This is important before and after stepping up to lead to be accepted by and relatable to others that you serve.
Tip 5. You've got to stay true to what you say and to do what you say you will do in order to inspire, build, and sustain a culture of honest doers.
Tip 6. You don’t always have to be tough, but you’ve got to be firm, especially in decision making.
Tip 7. Share information to create win-win situations, internally as well as externally.
