Ang Hui Ming, Co-founder of Leaderonomics
“When Roshan shared his insights on how critical leadership education was and how scarce it was in the developing world especially in rural schools and villages, we all knew that this was a calling worth investing our lives for. We are called to leave a positive legacy on this world, and what could be more important than enabling people to fulfil their potential. Many social enterprises give shoes, funding or food to the poor but those never solve the root of the issues in these challenged communities. But this vision at Leaderonomics was about going to the heart of the problem and fixing the root causes.
But there were obstacles in the way. How could we afford to bring this education to the masses, especially the challenged communities? We knew we did not want to set up an NGO but rather a model of leadership which could be replicated in all developing countries. And so we set up a social enterprise offering learning and corporate services to businesses all over the world, where all our talents and skills could be fully utilised and monetised. Then we take the funds generated from these services to be directly invested into community programmes for youth, university students and to help NGO and community leaders fulfill their calling as leaders.
We set up Leaderonomics, a unique social enterprise that funds its community programme through world-class leadership development programmes for corporates. Every morning I jump out of bed knowing that we are changing the world, one person at a time. And we want as many people as possible to partner with us on this exciting journey.”
Today, this vision remains the heartbeat of Leaderonomics -- providing leadership development to all, including those who cannot afford it, especially impacting the lives of children and youth. And the vision has become even bolder. At Leaderonomics, we have now grown into a global organisation, staying true to our calling but investing heavily in R&D in leadership development. Our research is now the cornerstone of our highly acclaimed action-learning curriculum, which explores new areas of leadership including brain research, EQ, Asian leadership and new means to lead. Today, we are proud to see numerous global organisations leverage on our corporate services and partner with us on our media and community work.
At Leaderonomics, we believe that everyone is a leader – whether a youth passionate about a cause, a parent leading the family, CEOs driving organisational growth or even politicians making a difference. We are devoted to provide the learning and development for everyone from the formative stage of leadership to the highest level of leadership to enable everyone to fulfill their potential and become the leader they were meant to be.”
