The Executive Study Group (ESG) seminar 2017 – Smart Leadership named “Getting Your Staff to Solve Problems “Without” You” was held by the ESG, Asia Pacific Institute for Strategy Limited (APIFS) and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corp (HKSTP) on 22 Jun 2017. I would like to summarize the seminar for sharing below. In the beginning, Dr. Mark Lee briefed the history of ESG establishment and discussed the Corporate Retreat for traditional sunset industries. He expected that we could get some inspiration through their seminar series.
Before the seminar, he asked two questions to participants and they were “How many of you are small potatoes in your company?” and “How many of you enjoy being a small potato?” Then he briefed the contents included “Business Complicatedness”, “Smart Leadership – six items” and “Group Discussion”.
