Forced Management and You

Forced Management: Most people are doing Forced Management knowingly or unknowingly.
For example, most managers set targets for their staff and simply pressurize them to achieve the targets. They do not get buy-in to the targets, nor do they help the staff to see how they can achieve the targets.
And they assume that the staff will hit the targets on their own, if not, they will do some forcing like issue threats. Few would take time to motivate, inspire and lead the staff to hit the targets. Even fewer will sit down and listen to the staff when they cannot hit the targets.
We all know that all goals must be internalized for it to be achieved. If you don't buy-in to the goals, you will not achieve them. Even if you do achieve them in the end, you will not get the pride and satisfaction of achievement.
We also know that if people achieve goals out of their own will, they will do so happily and willingly. Miracles will happen and we can turn all impossible to possible.
So move from Forced Management to Inspire Management. You will see the results, guaranteed. See how to be an effective manager and leader at…/15-how-to-be-an-effective-manager…

Red Packets is About Authentication

WeChat opens you up to a whole new world.
You are immediately connected with 1.4 billion people living in mainland China and another 100 million overseas Chinese living in places from Tanzania Africa to Montreal Canada.  This is because just like the Chinese language, WeChat is the only tool used by Chinese.  They may use WhatsApp, Facebook or Skype, but most of them feel safer to use WeChat.  
  1. Many of us are brought up in Western influence and we do things the western way.  But when you use WeChat, you will realise that you have to do things the Chinese way.  The Chinese way of doing things is simply giving out red packets or hong bao
  2. In WeChat, people give out and receive red packets every day. A small token sum of money, maybe one Chinese Yuan or even 1 cent is okay to give in your red packets. Giving out red packet is not just about goodwill but to let people know that you are a real person and not blacklisted. As we know, in order to give out red packets, you need to set up WeChat Wallet in your WeChat account.
  3. To set up WeChat Wallet, you either must have a bank account opened in China or use your Visa or MasterCard credit cards (not debit cards) to authenticate.  This process takes easily 30 minutes to 5 hours.  Once you have been authenticated, it proves to the whole world that you are NOT a bankrupt, not on the terrorist list, and not on any blacklist of the world's financial system, which is simply dominated by Visa and MasterCard. That's why it is important to open WeChat Wallet. 
As far as I know, Chinese businesspeople are too wary of frauds and if you don't have a WeChat Wallet, it simply means you have little credibility or you simply don't know how to use WeChat.  To know how to use WeChat and how to open WeChat Wallet, come for our 20th run of WeChat for Business course as follows;

What is Real Sales?

What Is a Real Sales?
Real Sales is About Chatting
Sales = Chat
  1. The real sales is a happy chatting experience, we chat about each other’s aspirations, worries, how to achieve our wishes and how to help each other take away our worries
  2. The real sales has no position, no buyer and no seller, only friends
  3. The real sales is about helping to solve your friend’s problems wholeheartedly
  4. There is no need to convince or persuade the other person if you’re doing real sales
  5. There is, of course, no pressure under real sales situation
  6. The real sales is about saying what the other person wants to listen, and we are selling what the other person wants
  7. The real sales is full of value and meaning as you the salesperson is helping your customer to solve a real problem
  8. After the closing of a real sale, the customer will say thanks. You will not feel relieved, because throughout the whole process you and the customer do not feel any pressure at all, and there is no persuasion on either side.
There are only two steps in a real sale:
  • Use your heart to understand the customer’s wishes and worries
  • Use your knowledge, product and service to help the customer fulfil and eliminate his worries
The biggest reward of a sales is not how much commission you earn, not promotion, not achieving an assignment or your sales result. The biggest reward of a sale is the trust you have gained from a person in your life.

The biggest enemy of sales is not your price, your competitor, prospect’s rejection, your product or your company’s system.  The biggest enemy of sales is your gripe, your grouse and your compliant

Training Charity

As a Lion member since 2004, I have been involved, in a small way, numerous charity projects. 

In October 2017, I decided that instead of actively involved in charity projects, I am actively involved in training charity projects.

That's why I take up this training project that pays me NO training fee.

A public service project, this 3-days powerful training program with 3 international trainers complete with meals and materials is waiving training fee for all the Singapore participants.

If you would like to be part of a worldwide audience of 380,000 people since 2011, come and join this program:

Only when a leader has a soul, can his enterprise have a soul!
Established in 1989, Spiritual Ocean International Group (心灵海国际教育集团), the parent company of SOHEAVEN (企业魂), is an international education group that advocates the personal and spiritual growth of each individual.
Our vision: In 20 years, making the entire world familiar with the 3 principles for life success. In another 20 years, liberate every individual on this planet from his Vortex of Life to create a loving and wealthy paradise on earth 创造富而有爱的人间天堂.
In the past 7 years, SOHEAVEN (企业魂) has held more than 1,380 world class workshops, each with participants ranging from 100 to 1,200 students, in over 11 countries and territories including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and USA.
Our flagship program ‘The Journey of Creation’ 创造之旅 has directly influenced more than 380,000 people in their body, soul and spiritual growth. Every month without fail, we conduct 5 to 10 such courses in different locations, often filling full houses with each venue.
In July 2017, SOHEAVEN’s program is made available in Singapore. Since then, we have conducted 3 runs of SOHEAVEN’s flagship program “Journey of Creation” in Singapore and trained over 300 participants.
SOHEAVEN differs from other training programs in the market by continuing to focus on the in-depth study of human beings’ body, soul, and spirit with the aim to take us away from the despair and heartache caused by primary relationship, career, and financial problems.
Every problem we faced in these three major life categories is all because subconsciously, we are still living in a slumber state. Hence, true awakening is the only answer to unlocking the key to the problems.
  • Only when you are truly awake, can your consciousness be enlightened,
  • Only when you are truly awake, can your energy stay fresh,
  • Only when you are truly awake, can you have surpassed power
  • Only when you are truly awake, can you see your future path clearly
The journey of creation is one of the few workshops in the world that encompasses all aspects of life in their teachings.
This 3-days workshop is a social service program, meaning we do not charge you any training fees. Originally offered at RMB20,000 or S$4,000 in China and Taiwan, we now offer this 3-days high-value workshop to you totally FREE of training fees. To cover the cost of materials, meals cost for 3-days, overseas trainers’ travelling expenses, training props, music and sound system, and training venue that can accommodate 150 people, we only collect from you S$299 per person or S$500 for 2 for a 3-days program complete with meals.
The magical 3-days workshop would let you come to realize how much limitations you have set in your life with your own beliefs and emotional status.
Whether it is in the area of your state of being, relationship with your family, your career, wealth, health, and motivation in life, through this powerful workshop, you will win back your power and mould and shape your life and the future as you want it to be.

What Surprised Me in Switzerland

As we know, Switzerland is a beautiful tourist haven for many.  From my recent 16 days trip, I got some nasty surprises too:
  1. The smoking rate is pretty high for such a developed country that is well known for pharmaceutical and health sciences.  If you see 2 adults standing, likely one of them is smoking. Everywhere people smoke: inside train stations, door of restaurants, just outside museums, ski mountains etc
  2. People are friendly generally, they just don't smile often and appear to be cold
  3. Trains are very punctual and fail-proof, the train tickets are, like everything in Switzerland, expensive
  4. Unlike Spain or other European countries, it is not common to find beers being served in fast-food restaurants.  Also, beer is not cheaper than soft drinks, unlike Spain and other countries
  5. Eating at restaurants can cost you an arm and a leg.  That's why Swiss seldom eat out.  But we managed to find small eateries that charged very low for very tasty food.  They just don't have friendly service!

5 Good Things You Must Know About Switzerland

I just came back from Switzerland Holidays, and these are the 5 good things about Switzerland that we too can learn from:
  1. Perfect public transport system comprises of trams, buses, above-ground trains, underground trains, mountain trains, cable cars, and boats.  They even have real-time arrival time of trams and buses using GPS
  2. United but not uniform.  Switzerland is actually not a country but a confederation making up of 26 cantons, which are federal states that have very great power. There is little central government control, unlike China or Russia. Every canton is like an independent country, with their own laws, languages, customs, and culture.  But the cantons are united as a nation but there is no uniformity. This gives rise to lots of creativity and competition among the cantons, which as a whole makes the nation stronger
  3. High Trust system.  Everyone uses public transport base on trust.  People do not buy train tickets and slot tickets into machines to enter train platforms, they just board the train as if the train is your private car.  There is a rigorous system of checking by conductors.  In this way, it is very easy to get on and off a public transport and this saves up much valuable space and time in trains, trams and buses
  4. Very Pro-Tourism.  In Switzerland, tourists are welcome not by the citizens opening up their arms but by the entire tourism ego-system.  For example, once you bought your Swiss Travel Pass, you can travel freely on all forms of public transport. There is also no admission charge for any other things including admission to museums, cable car rides, and even glaciers
  5. High use of Automation.  The Swiss are among the highest salary people in the world, but their productivity is very high because they automate a lot.  All doors are automatic, and so are the lights on the streets of remote mountains and toilet flush systems.  Because of automation, people are trained to do things in a orderly fashion, thus there are very little chaos and mess in most places
