Publisher DMG Books recently introduced the Thai Edition of "The
5 pillars of leadership" by Paul J Meyer and Randy Sletchta. The
book presents guidelines for being an effective leader with the
ability to drive an organization to success.
"we all have to
be leaders in different situations; at least we have to lead
ourselves. The question is how well we can do it." said Randy
Sletchta at the launch of the book in Bangkok. In addition to
being one of the authors, he is the president of Leadership
Management International (LMI) Inc, a global personnel and
organizational development consultant.
"Being an effective leader requires commitment, the courage
to move forward, the ability to cope with changes and the
willingness to help others to change themselves." he said.
In "the 5 pillars of Leadership", the success of an
organization is seen as a result of a thorough understanding of
the organization's goals and how to achieve them, as well as the
ability of the leaders and team members, and their collective
willingness to act.
A leader has 5 important tasks;
to clearly determine the organization's objectives; to create
strategies and plans for their achievement; to build strong
motivation within the organization; to streangthen the
confidence of the staff to do their best; and to maintain
determination and spirit when facing obstacles.
"A leader is the one who guides
the organization to success, solves the problems and creates
opportunities for progress," said sletchta. "Their
responsibilities also include improving other people's abilities
as well as their own, to achieve positive results and greater
translation of the book is by Jumbhot Chuasai, managing director
of LMI (Thailand). " The most important part of promoting
leadership in an organization is changing attitudes," he said.
"This means that the leader must provide education and expertise
as well as opportunities for employees to make their own
decisions and be their own boss, so that leadership will exist
at all levels of the chain of command."
On this occasion, Mrs Heather
Suksem, Managing Director of Property Care Services (Thailand)
Ltd. (PCS), shared valuable experiences on how PCS integrates
the concepts from the "The five pillars of Leadership" into the
