Mr. TEO CHOO GUAN grew up in a multiracial, multireligious and multicultural Malaysia. When he was young, he was a construction worker, this experience gave him the opportunity to meet up and make friends with different ethnic groups. Growing up in such an environment has made him realize that “respecting different religions, integrating into each other’s culture, and tolerating each other’s differences” could lead to a happy and harmonious life together. Under the leadership of Mr. TEO CHOO GUAN, WAKI International Group successfully broke away from the past business model, and ushered in a new high-tech era, and continuously maintaining stable development during this rapid change.
In the past, when science and technology were lacking, the management was generally “persuasive” and to win the belief of others; in the era of technological development, persuasion became a past tense, and people used “conquest” to communicate to gain the trust of others. Now is the era of rapid technological change, both our family and business are facing huge challenges: everyone is often in a dilemma state of “you and me seeing each other”, it is difficult to change ourselves and to understand other.
Mr. TEO CHOO GUAN found that this “persuasion” and “conquest” communication method is outdated, and it is no longer possible to drive the team and others. Therefore in today’s society, only by adopting a “payout” communication method that we could make a break through and to change the future. This so-called “payout” communication method requires us to be able pay out to inspire ourselves and others, by then everyone can “paying the effort together, experiencing together, creating the value together, enjoying the bright future together.” The creation of the health business of WAKi International Group is based on such an entrepreneurial spirit, thus actively and happily paying out together as to share happiness and health with everyone.
