International Motivational Speaker Simerjeet' Singh's Blog

LEADER, KNOW THY FOLLOWER – Simer focuses domain experts on their facilitative role as Heads of teams!

Alila Hotels and Resorts Singapore Ltd are blazing a superb trail.

Alila manages unique city hotels and resorts in the Asia Pacific region.

They have defined their niche (“the discerning business traveller”), and are considered a provider of choice within it.

Revenues are robust and sights are beings set on even better numbers and global expansion.

Numbers are the kingdom of a hotel’s FINANCIAL CONTROLLER who is meant to breathe, live and deliver them.

And you bet they know how to do that!

Here’s the rub —

They do not do it all alone by themselves!

Each of them leads a team of 15-20 persons.

Being a subject matter expert is one thing and being an expert at connecting with people is quite another.

Here’s WHY

EXPERTS —————    Know!

LEADERS —————-   Learn, with childlike receptivity!

(A beginner is open to AN INFINITY of possibilities. An expert is open to A FEW.)

EXPERTS ————–     Talk shop!

LEADERS —————–   Laugh, lighten, inspire and TALK LIFE!

EXPERTS ————        Prescribe, instruct.

LEADERS —————     Do that AND Listen, learn, coach and co-drive !

EXPERTS —————     Get feedback from their tools, charts and figures.

LEADERS —————     Get it ALSO from Vibes, cues, communication INCLUDING Asking for feedback.

EXPERTS ————–      Know their domain well. (High IQ)

LEADERS —————–   Also know that, AND know their PEOPLE well. (High EQ)

Who shall bell the cat?

To kick start the shift,  Alila Hotels and Resorts Ltd Singapore roped in the proven hand !

Motivational Sessions

Participation beats spectatorship, and realistic but engrossing ACTIVITIES & ROLE PLAYS brought his message home!

What immediately got triggered was – SELF-EXPLORATION and REFLECTION

And Simer had postulated his tripod of facilitative leadership — Leaders LAUGH, Leaders LEARN, Leaders CONNECT .

Leadership Session

These were some of the thought provoking questions were designed for his audience of senior leaders-

Am I spreading a contagious positive mood in my team?

Do I ask team members what their true challenges are?

Do I make the effort of connecting with the people around me?


  • Simer’s tripod – Leaders LEARN, LAUGH & CONNECT was firmly in place.
  • Application opportunities back at the workplace spontaneously explored!
  • Introspection triggered by powerful questions
  • The communication –ICE had melted away!

Feedback from participants was phenomenal-

Mr. Wisesa G Putu, Group Director of Finance, Alila Hotels and Resorts, Head Office, Singapore and Mr. Anjani Upadhyay, Financial Controller, Alila Bangalore who had jointly planned the interactive session on Leadership, felt that Simerjeet’s approach was fresh and his workshop acted as a good stimulant for the team to RETHINK.
