Sukamto Sia is a Hands On Leader, Worker, and Boss
There are a wide variety of philosophies towards work and managing people used all over the world. In some countries, the boss is the commander and controls every aspect of the company. In other countries, bosses are simply there as mentors and to guide other workers to reach the goals of the company. Many places have a combination of the two and create their own management-to-employee systems to help their companies run as efficiently as possible.
For Sukamto Sia, running his multiple businesses can only be accomplished by him being a hands-on leader. Sukarman Sukamto has made sure that his employees when they first begin their work know exactly what is expected of them. Sukarman Sukamto is a firm believer that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. At the very least, you have to show others how you want something done; of course one person cannot do everything in a company.
The attention that Sukarman Sukamto pays to his company and his employees as a hands-on leader has truly paid off. He is a business tycoon in his home country of Singapore and has led a very successful professional life. He credits much of his success to his ability to help others see the vision he has for how something should be done or how the results of an activity should be.
Sukarman Sukamto doesn't think he could manage people any other way. For him, being hands on is a part of his nature and he feels much better running his companies knowing that his employees have seen exactly what is expected of them to be successful.
