Looking into the crystal ball

Sureish Nathan, Managing Director of DDI Singapore shared two predictions for 2020: one that he wish to see fulfilled, the other that he hope will not materialise
The 2020s offer us a chance to re-assess the role business leaders and senior executives play in shaping the broader fundamental developments of society. Business leaders today have the influence to shape cultural attitudes and worldviews more than ever before. I hope leaders empower people with the humanity to recognise their talents, rather than reduce them to a profit-maximising metric that plagued the prior era of managerial economics.

2020 also besets us with navigating globalisation with the addition of nationalism. It will be difficult navigating this complexity as our identities are so intertwined with our sense of culture and career. I hope our heightened awareness of polarisation will inform the preservation of this delicate balance, and not influence us to tear apart the social-cultural fabric foundational to Singapore, and our place in the world.
