THE NOBLE INSPIRATIONAL LEADER
WORKSHOPS AND PROGRAMS GUIDE
(The Noble Virtues of True Leadership)
The Noble Inspirational Leader Workshop is a unique, highly
interactive and intensive program that consistently receives positive
reviews from our participants. Program participants graduate as
Noble Ambassadors. The Program has served as a catalyst for
profound self understanding and the development of Practical
Wisdom. Participants learn and apply the Noble Virtues and the Noble
Aspirations of Inspirational Leadership. They also embrace the
understanding of the Noble Cause Philosophy. This is not a training
event but it is a true self awareness experience developing
participants from the inside – out. It is experiential and has changed
the lives of many of our Graduates.
Noble Leadership is the commitment to the continuous pursuit of the Highest
Human Virtues and Aspirations.

Workshop and Program Design Principles
We believe that this Workshop and Program is different from many others today.
Other Programs focus on the development of external information and ideas. This
is the “outside-in” approach.
Our Philosophy recognizes that we can all cultivate our inherent qualities.
Management is a skill that can be externally learnt but Leadership can come from
within. We cultivate this via our “inside-out” approach. Anyone can be taught to
be a Manager-some will be good Managers and others will be not. Leadership
comes from within and when adopting our Philosophy you can become a Natural
and Authentic Inspirational Leader.
Our Program symbolizes the expression “Going beyond yourself”. We believe that
most of us are subject to many self destructive and negative qualities that hold us
back from achieving true satisfaction and fulfilment in our work and life.
Essentially we are “held back” by the subjective view that we hold of ourselves.
We believe that we can free ourselves from the Self Destructive Behaviours and
Outcomes that characterise our limitations and by embracing the Program
Philosophy one can truly “Go Beyond the self” and thereby find direction and
purpose and achieve greater self fulfilment.
Our Philosophy is simple in the belief that we need to learn how to “Lead Oneself
before Leading Others”. For many of us we think that it is not important to lead
others. Consider first the importance of leading oneself. “It is better to be the
Master of oneself and to master our reaction to the surrounding circumstances
rather than to be mastered by our self destructive nature and be overcome by all
the surrounding circumstances in life.” Although we may have no inclination to go
beyond such self leadership we should consider that regardless of our
circumstances most of us have responsibilities to others. It is for this reason that
we need to extend our leadership qualities beyond ourself and to strive to be our
inherent best. This best is represented by our Highest Human Virtues and
The Program has been designed in the belief that it is inherent within most
people to strive for the best within themselves. The Founder has spent over 30
years researching and developing the Philosophies within the Program. These
Philosophies have then been applied to our Modern World within the context of
what we call “Practical Wisdom”.
Aspects of the Program Philosophy have been derived and applied from Teachers
and Philosophers such as: Aristotle- Plato- Archimedes- Lao Tzu -Hui Neng and
The Workshops are structured in such a way to ensure that 50% of the Program
time is devoted to teaching by the Facilitators and 50% devoted to practical
interaction and learning by the participants. All participants are encouraged to be
actively engaged within the Workshop with each other and with the Facilitators.
The size of each Workshop is limited to 25-30 participants and we strive to
ensure that we have a well balanced class within a suitable learning and

The benefits and outcomes to Organizations
Our Philosophy is that in order for organisations to truly thrive and to inspire
true commitment, passion and drive from all their employees they need to create,
develop and maintain a corporate philosophy. This Philosophy should be such
that it will create a culture of “belonging” for all people.
All people include all stakeholders from the Chairman down and across and into
all the activities of the organisation. This Philosophy should create a sense of
“belonging” for all people which is integral to workplace health and happiness.
This sense of “belonging” can become a “Noble Cause” within the Organisational
Philosophy. Without the sense of belonging and being cared for by the Leadership,
each other and the Organisation then the level of commitment, passion, core
values and competencies will be difficult to achieve.
The absence of that sense of belonging creates a gap between the expectations of
the Employer and those of the Employee. This gap is now measured by the
increasing level of workplace disconnection which is so evident throughout the
It is clear that our Programs can do much to fuse the relationships within
organisations and to continually enhance the sense of belonging and being
Everyone wants to belong-everyone wants to believe that they are a valued
contributor-everyone wants to be accepted, but for some this is a difficult gap to
Essentially we like to be able to understand the proclaimed Values of the Client
Organisation and then to align those Values to the Noble Virtues and Aspirations
thereby bridging that gap. When personal values of the individual are aligned
with those of the Organization and those values are seen to be authentic people
will collaborate more and work towards a Noble Cause which will be driven from
their own aligned values.
As a result of this we see that an environment can be created where the
following can be achieved:
People will collaborate more and work towards a shared vision which will
be driven from their own aligned values
Trust becomes natural and assumed
Everyone in the organisation can become happy, healthier, inspired and
Interpersonal conflicts will reduce and fear, stress and anxiety will
People will want to stay in the organisation and others will want to join and
it will become a recognised and admired Employer of Choice
Turnover rates will decrease
People will engage more with each other with increased morale and
Individual and organizational health will improve
Injury rates and sick days will decrease
The insurance costs will decrease
People will become more independent and driven to succeed
Employer and employee relationship will become more harmonious
People will be more motivated and alive
Organisational Change and Program Suitability
One of the difficulties facing organisations today is the impact of uncertainty and
doubt within all their people. With the conditions of constant change and the
impact of uncertainty and doubt then fear will arise. This fear can be seen in 3
significant ways-the 3 Faces.
The Face of Judgement:
When we are judged harshly or feel that we are judged harshly then fear will be
the result. The source of this is often our own lack of self awareness possibly
combined with poor health habits.
The Face of Uncertainty:
Many people are detrimentally impacted by the “faceless” mask within many
organisations. When the effect of this impacts individuals the usual response is to
hallucinate the worst outcomes.
A recent study by the American Quality Foundation of 580 companies shows that
the uncertainty and doubt caused by ambiguous behaviour, inconsistency, vague
comments or absent authority leads to a cycle of fear and mistrust.
The Face of Silence:
This can begin with the sense of isolation within the organisation. People stop
talking to you and you sense that your feelings and your input is no longer of
meaning or value. This sense can then lead to a cycle of self destructive thinking
impacted by our own negative assumptions and then fear is the result.
All of the above can be features of workplace change and can result in decreased
productivity, loss of good people and the creation of a very negative workplace
This Program is highly suitable for the following conditions and environments:
Organisations going through a period of change
Organisations experiencing changes of leadership
Organisation Restructure with the potential for job losses and increased
demands and expectations
Organisational Expansion with increased demands and expectations.
By understanding the above the Noble Leader Program can help individuals and
groups to overcome their fear and doubt sometimes caused by others and often
caused by themselves.
“After 2 workshops, I find that it is still evolving inside me. I have made many new friends
all over the world who now share this bond created, shared and experienced by all those
involved. The virtues are indeed Noble and all Leaders need these virtues. It is a matter of
acceptance of the practice, development and cultivation of these virtues in our daily lives
that has the greatest impact. In a sense I have more direction & less clutter in my mind.
Others say that I seem calmer & more at peace with myself.
“This is the best leadership Program that I have done and it will not be forgotten”
Noble Ambassador and Master Facilitator
“The Facilitators are wonderful and they obviously practise what they preach. Clearly they
are aspiring examples of Noble leaders.”
HR Director for a Global Corporation and a Graduate Noble Ambassador
“The Philosophy and the wisdom gained has given me new knowledge to understand and to
know more about myself and others”.
“The Philosophy over the past 3 days has now given me a more holistic picture of myself
and the impact of the Virtues in my life”.
Senior Governmental Director
“This Program has opened up an avenue of fundamental opportunities for oneself to finally
be happier, healthier and a more worthy person”
Senior Executive-Multi National Automotive Corporation
“This Program enables you to find your TRUE SELF and to build a REAL SELF and to inspire
everybody around you.”
It is impressive and brilliant your idea of nobility for the future and to master the
difficulties in life. Nobility is a superior type of non-profit motive for economic striving and
social serving. It’s a transcendent urge of superlative wisdom. The noble attitude prevents
corrupt cycles spiritually and materially, that deteriorate the society. But how to bring this
"life style" to the society? Maybe the solution relies on education that has too long been
localistic, militaristic, ego exalting, and success seeking; it must eventually become
worldwide, idealistic, self-realizing, and cosmic grasping. Eventually it must be given over
to the philosophers and the scientists. Teachers must be real noble leaders in their fields, to
the end that philosophy, the search for wisdom, may become the chief educational pursuit.

Philip enjoyed many exciting years in banking with a career in market trading which began with
the floating (and crashing) of the Aussie Dollar in 1983, through tumultuous interest rate
movements, watching global equities crash and gold skyrocket on HK opening, up till the very eve
of The Asian Crisis and the meltdown of Asia’s own version of Lehman Brothers and the
devastating consequences thereafter. He has witnessed the common thread of human strengths
and weaknesses throughout all this confusion. The lessons, between writing tickets from
rectifying a few cents to FX Option pairs of USD 50 million face values per leg, were all about the
personalities behind the dealings. From fellow traders in the dealing room to central bankers
astride their cigars, it was then as it is now, ultimately about the behaviour and reactions of
normal human beings put under extraordinary circumstances and crushing pressure. The lessons
that he learned at that time are now valuable to those that he now guides and mentors through
their own lives.
Most importantly during the last 14 years, he has been involved in running the family owned
business of food manufacturing (Yuen Chun Industries Sdn Bhd) , a hundred year old enterprise,
first as the Finance Director, thence as Managing Director and now as Chairman of the company.
Although a very different environment, the challenge of running a business with around one
hundred staff was and continues to be a unique and in some ways, a deeply moving experience for
Philip. The task of representing shareholders interests, leading staff and fulfilling obligations to
suppliers, institutions and customers has been seen by Philip as a big responsibility and a unique
honour. He has multiplied the enterprise value by over 3 times during his tenure, but has now
decided that non-family involvement in the daily operations of the business will allow the other
professional managers a chance to develop and take the business up to the next level.
The experience gained during the challenging yet fascinating years in the business led him to
work with an established HR consulting firm that specialised in profiling tools and job suitability
towards the end of 2009. In quick succession, he attended a Leadership Workshop and became an
Ambassador for the Noble Leadership Programme in December of that year. In 2010, he
progressed to become a Certified Master Performing Coach approved by the International Coach
Federation. Philip brings all these experiences to further establish the Noble Leadership
Programme of workshops and courses to share and benefit with the rest of the region and is
excited to present the new 2 day course with new materials to many more Ambassadors going
