Sun Tzu Art of War

Winning Strategy for Leadership and Management (2-day)

Now You Can Win More using the Art of War Strategy in your Leadership and Management

Workshop overview

Sun Tzu was a 500 BCE Chinese general, military strategist, and author of The Art of War, an immensely influential ancient book on military strategy. Many great leaders like Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan studied his work and became legendary leaders. Even more corporate leaders paid tens of thousands of dollars to attend courses to learn Sun Tzu secrets.

We at Asia Trainers believe that you too can master Sun Tzu secrets without spending tens of thousands of dollars and many days. This is because we take the essence of Sun Tzu and compile them into a 2-day course that will leave you with just enough materials to lead your team to greater heights. Since October 2010, we have trained over 2,137 leaders coming from countries including Hong Kong, Japan, Myanmar and even China.

The most valuable lesson out of his 13 chapter of 5,000 words must be found in the 3rd chapter: Win Without Fighting.

As translated from The Art of War: Generally, in war the best thing is to take the enemy state whole and intact; to ruin it is inferior to this. To capture the entire army is better than to destroy it. Hence, to win on hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.

To subdue the enemy without fighting is supreme excellence. In short, win without fighting is the best.

How does it apply to your leadership and management?

1. Enemy here refers to not your enemy but your team that you are leading.

2. Take the enemy state whole and intact means you must lead your team wholly with not just their bodies, but also their minds, hearts and spirits.

3. Never destroy the bodies, minds, hearts and spirits of your team. So you cannot over-work them for you will be destroying their bodies and minds. You also cannot break their hearts by not delivering on your promises and make them give up on you. Finally, you may destroy their spirits when you unknowingly insult them or make feel invalidated by not listening to them.

4. To win without fighting in leadership is to lead without your team knowing that you are leading them. A leader is at his best when people barely know he exists, when the work is done, the team will say: we did it ourselves. This is because the leader has empowered the team so much and they have become so competent that they are mini leaders themselves, thus the leader is leading without actually leading them. This must be the highest form of leadership. Lead without Leading.

5. If you too want to be a great leader, learn from the master.
