What time do you like to be at your desk?
Usually around 9.00-9.30 AM
What do you do before going to work?
Checking my emails, taking shower, and having my breakfast. Sometimes I jog at nearby running tracks before breakfast.
How to organize your team?
No pressure, and always fun and happy, I want them to love my company and the whole team they’re working in, as well as the daily situation in the office.
What does your support team look like?
I always think about their personal life. For me, their happiness is more important than their jobs; for if they are contented with their life, surely they will be pleased with their jobs.
How do you describe your management style?
Open management style; more open for ideas, inputs, and answers.
Are tough decisions best taken by a single person?
Nope, I usually throw the tough ones to the floor to let me and my team discuss them together.
What would your key piece of management advice be?
Forging a team with diverse strengths, having the courage to try to do what you think is right, cultivating passion, determination and humility in the place you are working at.
Do you want to be liked or respected?
I wanna be liked outside the work as their friend but respected in the office as their leader. Actually im still learning how to be a good leader in front of them, still long way to go but im doing it now to equip myself to be a leader whom they love and can be inspired for them so they can do better than me.
