For the past 100 years or more, the teaching of leadership has always revolved around conducting comparative analysis between one person and another. We approach leadership in terms of one’s qualities, characteristics and traits. We also tend to compare, copy, idolize and even specify the shape, size, depth and colour of what a perfect leader looks like!
On the contrary, leadership is never about a person; it is not a personal pronoun but a collective noun.
Neither is leadership about IQ, EQ, SQ, CQ, etc.
Instead, leadership is about engaging your thinking with intellect.
Leadership is never about focusing on a chosen one, but it is for everybody and anybody who wants to develop his or her leadership talent.
As long as we have survival instincts in us, we can ALL be leaders.
Leadership is not so much about a particular set of characteristics or traits, but it is related to our very own intellect.
Leadership is within our DNA, and it is more accessible to all of us than we think.
(Note: “Invictus” is Latin for “unconquerable/unconquered” or “undefeated”.)
The first batch of Rocketeers and Returning Scholars of Thai Beverage graduating from The Art & Science of the Practice of Intellect Thinking were engaged with the presence of Khun Thapana Sirivadhanabhakdi, President and CEO, and Dr Agapol Na Songkhla, Chief People Officer of Thai Beverage PLC.
The journey started 6 months ago and now their adventure begins. These are bright and highly energised people with a hunger to be a better group of individuals from diverse backgrounds across Thailand. I am humbled by their determination to improve themselves although English is not their first language. Thank you, Rocketeers and Returning Scholars, for giving me this privilege to be part of your journey and I wish all of you Godspeed.
Pos Aviation Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Pos Malaysia Bhd, believes that the success of any organisation is in the key development of their people’s Intellect Thinking. They are taking the lead as the first organisation in Malaysia to incorporate Intellect Thinking as part of their competitive edge under Industrial Revolution 4.0. This initiative is led by their CEO (Mr Woo Kam Weng), COO (Mr Sarly Adle) and Head of HR & Admin (Puan Wan Anita), which is making a significant difference in Pos Aviation.

We Think Differently…
Therefore We Believe Differently and We Lead Differently.

“I thought the first session, conducted with Mr Ravi’s facilitation style, was entertaining/eventful/effective and to the point. This gave most candidates food for thought on where they stood (from a professional standpoint rather than personal) versus where they needed to be, in the organization. There was good small-group interaction and participation facilitated by Mr Ravi.”
“The workshop offered valuable insights; it enhanced my self-awareness as well as provided ideas and clues to further improve one’s leadership qualities. This would also be beneficial in the family setting. The workshop also reinforced the importance of doing the right things. The facilitator was able to provoke the audience to provide responses. His sharing of experiences livened up the workshop. He was friendly and very helpful.”
“Till this day, some of us still speak of Ravi, our leadership development guru, who has certainly made a mark on us. I take this opportunity to thank him for revisiting the fundamentals and core values of good leadership, reminding us of our responsibilities and obligations as leaders, ingraining in us the importance of leadership alignment and shared core values, and much more, all of which constitute the leadership essentials that make a difference to our organization. Thank you, Ravi, for being the ‘shaker’ and the ‘shaper’!”
“Like most of you, I have had the opportunity to attend a number of programmes bearing the buzzword, “Leadership Skills”. Here at our organization, a high priority is placed on developing people talent, and for that, we worked with Invictus Leader to assess, identify and engage our key talent. The journey was exhaustive and highly innovative at the same time. In the quest of realizing our intertwined strategic goals, the programme methodologies applied brought real utility to both the employee and the management alike. Believe me, this programme is truly different and sets the standard in terms of excellence! Frankly, it’s a pleasure to endorse V.S. Ravi – a key enabler towards enabling this. Arguably, one of the best practical programmes that I’ve been part of!
“A very good leadership course with real life examples and a useful approach that can be applied at the workplace as well as in one’s personal life. The facilitator is well-versed with the subject matter. A very professional facilitator; he has done an excellent job!”
“The programme has taken our minds to the next level, creating greater confidence levels – especially pertaining to senior management, paving the way for transparency and creating more teamwork. This is a good programme which has exceeded our expectation levels. It breaks open our minds to think further and deeper… The facilitator challenged our thinking limits; in order to do this, he would provoke us until we were able to come up with ideas or solutions.”
We have a versatile, well-rounded team with diverse skills and rich cross-cultural experience in multinational corporations across the world.
