“There are five core values that you can apply in life: culture, trust, courage, creativity, and internationalism.” This is what the CEO of Standard Chartered Indonesia, Tom Aaker, stated during the event CEO Speaks on Leadership, held on February 5th at BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL, Senayan. One of the oldest banks in Britain, Standard Chartered Bank has continued to grow by focusing on important regions in the world such as Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, supported by a clear and consistent strategy throughout the years. Standard Chartered Bank has also successfully maintained a culture of leadership which is readily accepted by Indonesians, especially those with a surplus of exploitable income.
Looking at the development of the banking industry in Indonesia, many business people continue to make breakthroughs that improve the quality of their banking products and services. With numerous banks operating in Indonesia, the public demands a high level of security and a strong guarantee that their money will be kept safe. Prudent selection can really help in this matter.
BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL uses a six-point foundation as the basis for teaching and learning during post-graduate programs. The foundation consists of growth, innovation, leadership, people, culture & change[S1] , and execution. It is expected that the graduates will become young professionals who master strategies and possess the leadership skills to lead themselves, their groups and their companies, and to be role models in the business environment. “Not only must we have the characteristics of leaders and endeavor to become the best people in our companies, we must also possess spirit, integrity and confidence, and be able to transfer all these to those in our team,” Tom Aaker asserted.
By developing our innovative skills and acting positively toward others, we can be sure that the strong sense of leadership residing within us can be felt by others in a way that will inspire them. We should always step out of our comfort zone and face the challenges which can bring about changes for the better. (JR)
