“Great leaders have to be great teachers. We have to understand each individual and give them the right support to bring them up.” Chuen Chuen Yeo talks about the importance of knowing your people and supporting them the right way on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
“We cannot achieve anything if we are alone. We have to learn to enlist other people into our costs, our mission. To do that, we might have to choose to slow down. When I look at things like speed vs. performance, a lot of leaders can do with more patience because in their hurry to get to the end state, they compromise things and they may lose a relationship that they can never repay.” Importance of relationships built on trust in leadership with Chuen Chuen Yeo on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
“Performers have found a way to minimize chances of failure, but in their hearts, they have not embraced the truth that failure is part of any equation and learning experience. It doesn’t mean you are bad. It only just reflects that their approach is incorrect and it has informed you to do things differently. That’s a truth that people need to embrace to increase their resilience.” Chuen Chuen Yeo talks about working on being more resilient on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
