The three 'E's of management style

Encouraging, Empowering, Enduring helped to transform a not very profitable little one-product business into something that was sold for S$825m

NOT so long ago I met up with a former colleague. It has been more than 30 years since we worked together. We've kept in touch but I hadn't seen him for a few years. We decided to lunch together. He is a truly splendid man.

When diagnosed with a long-term disease over 20 years ago he decided that he would help those afflicted by the same disease. He has devoted himself wholeheartedly to this cause and in the process has handled his own situation exceptionally well. A model for all of us, I think. Generosity of spirit must come high in anyone's management book.
