  • Board of Management put the interests of the whole team on top and have a duty to lead their employees. The management begins and struggles for the integrity.
  • Organizational culture is formed by thoughts and actions of every member. Moreover, the Management contributes significantly in creating the culture.
  • Management always serves for the interests of the organization and transfer motivations to everybody. The Management must maintain the culture, transparency, straightforward to have a “standard view” among goals, mission, visions and core values. We need to understand deeply the power of the culture and responsible for building the working environment.
  • Management is responsible for connecting, fostering dreams and ambitions; inspiring employees; and encouraging them to share their dreams.
  • We should improve the leadership skills through solving problems, and be determined to turn tough challenges to breakthroughs and keep moving forward.
  • Leadership is empowerment, a talented leader not only depends on technical competency, but also needs the ability to empower and delegate subordinates. The main duty of the leader is to develop the next generation to carry on growing the organization, as well as to put the employees in the right position.
  • Board of management should be exemplary and give clear and strong commands to implement operation program of organization. Leaders shall show subordinates the targets they consider as the highest priorities and enable subordinates to understand their importance.
  • Board of Directors should consistently follow what we believe and think of future to have appropriate leading orientation. If leaders really want to motivate employees, leaders should make employee trust them.
  • Give subordinates the freedom of imagination and creativity. Connect with employees to succeed, and improve organization’s productivity.
  • The leader should work closely with staff. The first thing a leader must do is to think prudently about what he desires and to try to accomplish the targets. Next, the leader must communicate these things to staffs so that the targets will be achieved, which is referred as the imperative mandate.
  • The imperative mandate consists of three elements: the first is to think thoroughly about what we need to communicate and to define our purpose. The second is to assign tasks to subordinates, and the third is to supervise appropriately.
  • The most necessary thing is to have clear communication with subordinates about the purposes of the tasks. Leaders must be strict with themselves when setting and actualizing the goals. This is the connection between strategic planning and implementation.
  • The talent of leader is evident in the leadership, as well as the ability to identify the situation and make the right decisions in difficult and unpredictable times.
  • The leader needs to listen carefully to everyone in a variety of manners and give priority to understanding others.

  • The leader should be the one who inspires and guides the team to succeed.

PRINCIPLE OF ORGANIZATION MANAGING & BEHAVIOR RULES

  • The transparency of corporate governance is the highest priority in our organization.
  • This important principle is an essential part of the organization’s ability to achieve sustainable growth through transparent and fair treatment of our clients, shareholders, employees, partners and responsibilities to society.
  • Transparent Management Principle enhances the trustworthiness of our organization to strategic partners, investors, and helps develop our brand name in the market.
  • By common consent, our organization‘s code of conduct is based on the organization culture. The code of conduct supports the operation of the Organization in line with the business philosophy.
  • The Board of Directors and Managers in all levels act as the best model in building the working environment in order to ensure that every member of the organization is responsible for compliance with the Code of Conduct with honesty and appropriateness.
  • The target of organization management – fulfill plans by principles of governance methods.
  • No enterprise can finish commitments or adapt well with changing, unless all leaders implement the plan principles in every level.
  • The implementation of the plan must be part of the organization’s strategy and objectives. It is the connection between aspirations and results. Thus, this is a fundamental step – and indeed the key duty of the leaders.
  • The main issue in implementing plans bases on three processes: the personnel process, the strategic process, and the operating process. An organization’s plans can only be actualized when the heart, mind, and soul of a leader are put in the organization’s culture.
  • We need to keep in mind three following necessary points of plan implementation:
  1. Implementation should be combined with strategic development.
  2. Actualization of the plan is the main task of the leader.
  3. Implementing plan must be a key element of our organization’s operation principle.

  • The next four rules enable them to turn that knowledge into effective actions.
  • The last two rules ensure that in the organization each individual is responsible for the joint work.
  • All shareholders, Board of Directors, and Managers and staffs of organization are committed to creating and promoting the company culture – basis for sustainable development of our organization.
