Careers Talk (December 15, 2016)

We were honoured to have the Vice-Chancellor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor Joseph J.Y. Sung, as our guest speaker for the talk on “facing adversity and changes”.

...

Dr. Sung began with the sharing of his experience in handling the SARS outbreak in 2003, emphasizing that obstacles in life are inevitable and it all depends on how we deal with them. This has given him the opportunity to see how difficulties strengthen the solidarity of the people in Hong Kong. When people are united, nothing can stand in their way. This is why effective communication is of ultimate importance, especially in teamwork.

...

Gratitude is another key to success. It is important to count our blessing and appreciate the small things in life when we feel despair in face of challenges. Dr. Sung also underscored the importance of upholding our integrity and modesty as leaders. Leaders, he stressed, should be prepared to make tough decisions and stand alone when facing criticisms. Besides, they have to look far and act fast. “Leaders are the first to see the need, envision the plan and take action. A good leader is always ready to walk the extra mile,” he said.

...

It was a fruitful day for us. We have been enlightened by Dr. Sung’s sharing of his personal experience in overcoming challenges and qualities as a leader. We have learnt a great deal not just from the substantial content of Dr. Sung’s talk, but even more so from his charm and charismatic leadership.
