Lead Your Life-Eight Respected Singaporeans Reflect on Leadership,Labour and Love
"Leadership in the Internet world...is not a one-way relationship - of the leader having the ideas, the plan, and the others following like the clone armies in Star Wars. In this day and age, clone armies are weak armies. Mindless supporters are worthless. Leadership becomes a chmistry among people, enabling them to draw energy from one another." - George Yeo, Former Minister for Foreign Affairs, Singapore

In Lead Your Life, eight prominent old boys of St Joseph/s Institution - Cabinet Minister, University President, and CEOs - recount the times they were called on to exercise leadership and how they responded to that call in a series of frank exchanges with Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez.

In a series of conversations on the art of leadership held in 2010-2011 at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore - dubbed The Fullerton-SJI Leadership Lectures - distinguished alumni of St Joseph's Institution shared what they had learnt about leadership, and the leaders they had become, with a younger generation.

From government leaders to business chiefs, iconoclasts to intellectuals - they are all leaders in their own right. Their leadership moments ranged from a call to serve as a deputy prime minister, the SARS epidemic, or a financial scandal at the National Kidney Foundation. Whatever the case, they shared openly how they responded to the call of leadership. Their styles and presentations differed markedly; their insights were rich and diverse, drawing on their experiences in fields such as banking, government, the arts and non-government volunteer organisations. Ideals ranged from how to build organisations, provide visionary leadership, establish trust and credibility, stay humble and grounded, manage time and stress, while preparing to plug-and-play in an increasingly complex and connected world.
