Confrontation can be pre-emptive step to thwart conflicts.

SERI KEMBANGAN: Confrontation may not be the approach most take in dealing with colleagues but it can be the pre-emptive step to thwart conflicts in an organisation, QI Group executive chairman Datuk Dr Vijay Eswaran revealed.

Eswaran believes that leaders in a company needed to be “open to the idea of confronting and being confronted in order for everyone to arrive on the same page at the end”.

“Taking a leaf from Sun Zi’s Art of War, I believe that one should confront before you conflict,” he said at a session on how industry leaders drive successes for their companies at the World Chinese Economic Forum.

He said although the strategy would take a longer time to bear fruit as it required leaders to have multiple discussions before they could come to an agreement, the results of such practice usually meant a team of leaders who were capable of speaking out and standing up for their opinions.

“I come from a traditional management school of thought where leaders were not suppose to challenge existing practices. Just because something has been in place for a long time doesn’t mean it has to be (continued),” he said of conventional management practices.

As for company strategies, Philippines TA Trade Advisory Group managing director Anthony Amunategui Abad said organisations needed to realise that they had to “think global, operate regional and act local”, adding that a company’s business depended a lot on how the management dealt with local issues.

He said there were still companies that did not see the necessity to move into the global arena but “the sooner you accept that the world is getting smaller, the less frustrated you will be”.

Abad’s advice was to focus on building a niche without sacrificing economic openness and competition and to be familiar with policy-legal-regulatory framework in the countries the businesses want to operate in.

“Often, promising companies suffer losses because they do not know the policies and regulations of the countries they want to engage with,” he said, citing examples of countries rejecting goods due to non-compliance of import regulations or the losing of intellectual property when companies do not register their innovations properly.


Quest International University Perak (QIUP)

KUALA LUMPUR: Quest International University Perak’s (QIUP) permanent campus will be a completely environmental friendly one when it is completed in the near future, said QIUP university council chairman Datuk Vijay Eswaran yesterday.

For starters, the 101ha campus to be constructed in Gua Tempurung, Perak, will be carbon neutral.

Vijay said students would be encouraged to get around on bicycles.
“Students and staff will also be using electric buggies and buses to move around,” he told the New Sunday Times.

QIUP, which was launched by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Oct 27, will also incorporate new water acquisition technologies in the campus, such as the “Water from Air” (WFA) system, where the buildings will harvest moisture from the surrounding atmosphere to be processed into drinking water.

“Other water sources are rain and lake water, since the campus will share an area with seven major lakes,” said Vijay.
“The location’s scenic and calming properties will be conducive for studying,” he added.

The decision to take green initiatives was a win-win scenario for the university — greenhouse gas emissions would be kept at minimal levels and at the same time, QIUP will be able to showcase advanced environmentally friendly technologies.

Vijay said the university’s green initiatives and technological showcase was a reflection of its mission, where students not only gain academic knowledge, but also take on a new level of awareness outside of niche boundaries.

“We do not want to build just another university which churns out graduates and degrees on conveyor belts, like in factories.”

He said innovative courses would be offered to students.

“For example, a student taking up medicine as their major will have the chance to take up other studies which complements the main subject.”

The permanent campus will be built in multiple phases. Its first buildings will be occupied as early as the end of next year.
