Leaders Matter: Why? How?
By Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Speaker of Parliament, Republic of Singapore

We all know that leaders and leadership matters. But have we asked ourselves why that is so and if indeed it is the case, how does it manifest itself? Are leaders clear about their own leadership philosophy and beliefs? What guides us as leaders?

Singapore’s Fiscal Sustainability Challenges: Managing Competing Needs with Limited Resources
By Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and Education

As leaders, one will often face obstacles and challenges in the journey to achieve the best outcomes for one’s team, organisation or even country. Sometimes, going beyond boundaries means making difficult decisions that may initially seem unpopular. Yet, these decisions often lead to positive outcomes in the long term, despite any short-term detriments.

The challenge that Singapore is facing now, as a mature and developed country, is that our national needs are evolving and expanding. In particular, we face pressing priorities in key areas such as healthcare, infrastructure, security, and education.

The Singapore Government has to manage national expenditures and revenues very carefully, planning long term to ensure that we have enough resources to meet the needs of current and future generations of Singaporeans.

Leadership—A Relational Dance
By Dr Goh Wei-Leong, Chairman and Co-Founder of HealthServe

In this digital age where the new constantly outpaces the old and creativity is defined by singularity, are our preconceived notions limiting us from discovering the priceless leadership gems among us? In this session by successful community leader and keynote speaker Dr Goh, he challenges us to rethink our traditional perspectives of leadership and the conventional leader archetype. “I believe leadership is being formed by others, in the dynamic interaction, reflection and sharing of skills. Leadership expression can be likened to a dance, where we constantly move in response to the life of our peers and the ebb and flow in our relationships with them. Leadership happens in an interactive space, and is only meaningful when we consider it in relation with our immediate neighbor.”
