INSPIRE Ms. Zoë Ng has hit numerous headlines as a co-founder of Urbanland’s award-winning project, Raintree Development. Talking Leadership This time, we share insights from Zoë on her personal with an Obama leadership philosophy and experience in the Obama Leader Foundation Leaders: Asia-Pacific program. Through the program, Zoë met many high-profile individuals such as actress Julia Roberts, CEO of AirAsia Tony Fernandes and President Obama and Mrs. Obama. What left the deepest mark in Zoë’s heart, however, was seeing the capacity of other chosen leaders and how they’re tackling the greatest problems in the world today. “They’re such extraordinary people and they lead in different ways,” said Zoë. “But if we look at some of the commonalities, I’d argue that everyone in the cohort is highly resilient, empathetic, critical and eloquent,” she continued. Zoë noted that different leadership styles work for different people and in different situations. Particularly, as a female leader, it comes with a specific set of challenges. “To overcome them, I think first is embracing your gender, second is working hard to demonstrate your capability and third is fact-based self-advocacy,” said Zoë. Generally, with her team, Zoë likes to keep things fast-paced, personal and non-hierarchical. “I think personal and professional worlds really mix. If you want to be working closely with the team, you have to know what’s going on in their lives to a certain degree.” But with rich work experience ranging from McKinsey & Com- pany to Google and now Raintree, when was the most forma- tive period in Zoë’s leadership journey? “Oftentimes, there’s this myth that the career choices you make and the job you do play the most important role in shaping your leadership style,” said Zoë. “Work can expose you to a lot of leadership archetypes, but finding what truly works for you usually comes through the deepest, most personal relation- ships you have,” she added, stressing how vulnerability and the nature of those relationships could make you ask self-reflective questions that transforms you both personally and profession- ally. With a passion to drive positive social change, Zoë was grateful for being selected for the Obama Foundation Leaders: Asia- Pacific program. In this one-year leadership development and community engagement initiative, she has so far participated in skill-building workshops, leadership development training and a community service project, among other activities. “The way I view this, it’s a real opportunity to do better work. It’s about tactically understanding how I can work better to have a deeper impact on the community I live in,” said Zoë. ISIGROUP FOCUS MAGAZINE 11

LEARN Powering ISI GROUP with Shared Learning At ISI GROUP our teams are made up of talented and driven indi- viduals who bring a variety of skills and experiences to the table. When we take these individual skills and work together to achieve a common goal we’re practicing shared learning. The Association for Talent Development believes that, ‘being a shared learner is a great way to close the skills gap, create new organizational re- lationships and power your organization’. I would have to agree. When we cooperate and work towards a common goal, the variety of opinions, experiences and knowledge of a diverse team adds to the outcome. Ideas are shared and we realize that we can rely on each other to find the solutions we need. Last year many shared learning sessions were held across ISI GROUP. ISI STEEL, Fuxin, HKA, Urbanland and KMH Industrial Park took part in project management coaching to enhance and strengthen the capac- ity and skills of project teams across those businesses. Over a three month period, the teams were required to share their experiences, good and bad, in order to better prepare each other for the future. ISI GROUP Corporate Communications team had their first ever Strategy Day, where businesses gained a better understanding of what their colleagues from across the group were doing, learnt from this and improved organizational relationships. Urbanland also hosted leader- ship training, where a deeper understanding of leadership foundations and self-reflection meant each person could cultivate their capacity. ISI GROUP CEO, Mr. Kang Leng, has also noted an improvement in shared learning and the benefits of this. “Since the establish- ment of ISI GROUP in 2018, I have witnessed our people across the business units coming together as one big family. We have more group initiatives planned than ever before and we are working collaboratively with harmony and creativity,” he said. These events, and other shared learning experiences, shape our people and how we do things at ISI GROUP. When shared learning is embedded in our corporate culture, we know that we can find answers within our internal team. We know that, with our shared knowledge, we are best equipped to conquer the challenges of today and can lead our businesses and people with strength into the future. By Sarah Cowley | Group Corporate Communications Manager ISIGROUP FOCUS MAGAZINE 17

LEARN “ISI GROUP has a special place in my heart. The group’s open approach to capacity development provides a place where individuals from different levels with different skill sets, aspirations and attitudes can come together and leverage collective intelligence. Take the ISI GROUP Communications Strategy Day for example. It was inclusive, respectful, professional and fun. Having a chance to see and discuss what all the Marketing and Communications teams across the group plan for 2020 gave me new ideas on how to move forward. I’m grateful to be working in a group that always seeks to add significant value to each employee and help them reach their highest potential.” Mr. Chetra Kang, Chungkang Sales Supervisor 18 ISIGROUP FOCUS MAGAZINE

The ISI STEEL factory compound was lavished in forest green and swamped with group-wide employees deep in the celebration spirit. This long-awaited night was filled with fun, food, drinks, games, great prizes and live performances from our employees as well as professional artists. With our environmental appreciation underlying the atmosphere, we also reinforced our commitment to single-use plastic reduction and brought forth a proposal for building a sustainable future by planting one million trees in three years. As Mr. Kang Leng mentioned during his speech, without plants, we’d be like an engine with no oil. “So here is a challenge: Can we celebrate our 26th anniversary by having planted and nurtured one million trees?” said Mr. Kang Leng. “I feel confident in the strength and synergy of our people. Together, we can!” He added, marking the beginning of our one-million tree journey. 36 ISIGROUP FOCUS MAGAZINE
