about this item

Eavesdrop on a top CEO to learn the secrets of great leadership

Building People provides a glimpse into the mind of one of Asia's keenest and most effective business leaders. Before becoming Chairman of Changi Airport Group and Surbana Jurong, author Mun Leong Liew was named Best CEO in Singapore, Best CEO in Asia, CEO of the Year, Outstanding CEO of the Year, and more—but his successes are not based strictly upon the numbers. This book reveals the personal and professional philosophy behind this extraordinarily effective leader, in the context of frank and insightful emails to his staff. Touching on everything from honour and potential to training and mentorship, these messages paint a clear picture of the difference between good and great leadership. Effective leaders build companies, but legendary leaders build people—by strengthening the heart of your organisation, you enable robust growth and dynamic stability from the inside out.

These emails go beyond mere public relations to lay open the true nature of a man who is honestly, deeply committed to his job, his responsibility, his organisation, and most of all, his people.

  • Learn why work-life balance is not a zero-sum game
  • Discover what pragmatism and commitment truly mean in business
  • Realise the importance of good partnerships and unsung heroes
  • Manage change effectively and employ it wisely for sustainable success

By eavesdropping on a CEO's communications with the people he serves, you get a real sense of the man behind the success. Great leadership is rooted in a philosophy of "building up" instead of tearing down, and motivated by the sincere belief that we bring our own purpose into everything we do. Building People brings great leadership to life, and inspires action over theory through the insights of Mun Leong Liew.
