Dear Members and Friends

Last week your Chamber collaborated with 28 other trade associations and chambers (TACs) which form the TAC Alliance in Singapore, to issue a Joint Statement on Fair Hiring and Employment Practices.

Last week, too, saw the inauguration of President Biden in the United States.

Back home again, we held the first in a series of four webinars this year on mindfulness and its positive benefits for each of us at work and at home.

What connects these three events, and what will enable their success, is the need for all of us to change our mindsets starting with each business leader, each employee, each citizen and each resident. As President Biden said in his inaugural address, and here I paraphrase, leaders and America must:-
“Not lead by their example of power but by the power of their example.”

Humility and lack of ego are the first prerequisites of mindset change. Next come self-awareness and the awareness of the need to change.

Changing mindsets is hard. But it is a decision each of us must make in our own best, long term interests and in the best long term interests of our companies, communities and countries. It starts with truthful, self- awareness which results in each of us making the necessary changes in ourselves to enable ourselves, our teams and communities to be more positively impactful: to be better and to do better not for ourselves alone but with and for others.

I am working at being less judgmental. What are you doing to change your mindset to enable others to do the same?

Warmest regards
Victor Mills
