Mastering business strategy with the Art of War
It’s sometimes used as a business manual, but how exactly does Sun Tzu’s Art of War apply today? To find out, 82 CCT tenants attended “Think Wits Win”, a talk by author and business leader Soo Kok Leng, who spoke about key concepts in his book, Think Wits Win: How to Use Sun Zi’s Art of War for Success. Mr Soo shared personal anecdotes from his experiences during the different phases of his career, tying them in with the ideas in his book, which illustrates Sun Tzu’s dialectical thinking and ambidextrous leadership and how these approaches can help build and sustain a winning business in a fast and ever-changing marketplace.
The talk, held on 25 October at the Big Picture theatre, was followed by a Q&A session moderated by Ms Pauline Goh, Chairman of Southeast Asia at CBRE, where Mr Soo dived deeper into the power behind Sun Tzu’s written word and how it can help formulate winning business approaches.
“Think Wits Win” was organised as part of the CCT Leadership Series, which brings informative talks to the CCT community.
