The line is quoted from CEO General Electric (GE) Indonesia, Dr. Handry Satriago as speaking during an event ‘CEO Speaks on Leadership’ held by BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL on Monday, August 26 2013. Moderated by Firdaus Alamsjah, Ph.D (Executive Dean, BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL), the event is an interactive dialogue discussing leadership philosophy of a leader who must face the challenge of global competition in the future.
“A true leader is one who possesses strong confidence and believes that he is the right person to carry out his responsibilities due to his competence. A true leader does not measure himself by position. It’s more about how a leader has to possess the capability to influence his organization. For him, authority will be in accordance with accountability,” says Dr. Handry Satriago.
Furthermore, he said that a true leader will always know where he goes. There is no way for him to come home empty-handed. Being able to realize brilliant ideas to improve the quality of a company is an art in leadership. Also, a true leader is merely a useless title if one cannot create tough new leaders in the organization.
During the discussion, Dr. Handry Satriago also explained about the business and development of GE Indonesia. His sense of humor and broad insight attracted participants who wanted to know him more. The air was full of enthusiasm coming not only from participants within BINUS circle, but also from various businessmen. (Karunia Fransiska)
