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”.)

“Leadership is an act that is intentional – it is not influence – as people are being invited to perform, examine and overcome barriers to their own effectiveness, that is, to adapt and thrive.”  
~ V S Ravi


“There is no such thing as a ‘Potential Leader’. Everyone is a leader – you need to have the intent to lead and engage your intellect thinking.”
~ V S Ravi


“Optimum level of Intellect Thinking is achieved when we have Unity in Diversity.”
~ V S Ravi

Thai Bev’s Intellect Thinkers Trailblazers for IR4.0 & beyond!

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.

Thank you, Rocketeers and Returning Scholars, for giving me this privilege to be part of your journey and I wish all of you Godspeed.

Why Invictus?
Invictus is a Latin word that means unconquered or unvanquished. Invictus Leader is therefore committed to your continuous, sustainable growth as a leader despite the multiple challenges you face in today’s world of dwindling values, merciless competition and harsh macro-environmental factors.
Leaders must think critically, creatively and conscientiously for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. The right thinking processes within the right mind set and attitude can engender unlimited leadership learning.
What thought is to the mind, belief is to the heart. To believe is to internalize your values and vision so steadfastly that your ensuing actions will reflect those beliefs. Leaders must believe in themselves and know who else to believe in.
Throughout the course of history, leadership has been essential for mankind’s survival. Leaders must evolve or dissolve! Authenticity is the essence of true leadership; it is what makes a leader credible, inimitable and enduring.
