Corporate Sustainability

Fostering
Reliable, Responsible
& Robust Brands

The ever-rising influence and power of Asian economic giants have caused numerous regional SMEs to be swallowed, sidelined or sunken. The quality and cutting-edge of a company reflects its strategy and ability to anticipate, appreciate, accommodate and translate opportunities and in tandem, negotiate or nullify risks.

The robustness and goodwill of a modern corporate brand hinges on its reliability, adaptability and responsibility, balancing its economic objectives with social and environmental ones.

The ability to manage and milk on its social capital helps contribute towards enhanced respect and reputation of the brand, hence gaining comparative appeal and competitive advantage.

Community Resilience

Engineering
Sustainable Social
Stability & Security

Widespread man-made menace of terrorism and armed-conflicts, along with increasing occurrence of large-scale natural disasters, have devastated, derailed, disrupted or distracted economies and communities. Regardless of the nature of threats, countries require civic engineering to sustain social stability and security.

Civic Engineering is the creative application of social sciences and scientific solutions to design, develop or deliver community development programmes, utilising them singly or in combination, to advance the security and stability of communities and societies. It takes into account their behaviors under specific conditions, intended function and outcome, economics of operation and, safety to life and property.

Crisis Management

Communicating
Assurance and
Maintaining Confidence

Companies and societies bear varying vulnerabilities.

Crises are abnormal circumstances with adverse consequences.

Communicating assurance and maintaining confidence are key to stability. Procedures are crucial, but personality is critical.

Incisive and decisiveness allows for purposeful response and speedier recovery.

Managing crises requires both flair and form.

Humanitarian Affairs

Galvanising
Inter-Sector Cooperation
& Interoperability

Insecurities continue to threaten human safety and social stability as the world continues to be wrecked by financial crises, climate change and agonising spectacles of nature’s fury.  Disaster management includes the rights of affected communities to continue living with decency and dignity.

With increasing occurrence of natural disasters, and given that resources are not unlimited, it is imperative for inter-sector synergy and civil-military cooperation, to ensure effectiveness of interventions and avoiding wasteful duplications of effort.

Servant Leadership

Shaping
Personality of
Humility & Empathy

Servant leadership is both a philosophy and practice, based on coaching instead of controlling. Unlike traditional leadership, servant-leaders share power, prioritise the needs of others, and help them develop and unleash their energy and intelligence.

Servant-leaders walk alongside their subordinates, wear their hearts on the sleeves and, always in search of opportunities for others to be something more.

As a compassionate collaborator of a common cause, filled with humility and empathy, the highest priority of a servant-leader is to encourage and enable subordinates to unfold their full potential and abilities. This comes with the obligation to delegate responsibility responsibly, and allow for participative decision-making.
