MANILA - There are bosses who lead and there are those who follow.
Globe Telecom President and CEO Ernest Cu combines both using a "golden rule" -- inspiring employees to do their work and leaving them alone when needed.
Cu says it's important to first agree on a strategy.
"I don't really like looking over people's shoulders because if I do that, I might as well do that myself. I kinda feel that I want to treat people who work for me the same way I want to be treated...as if I
was working for someone. And we follow that golden rule here at Globe," he says.
This set-up, Cu says, makes the work place more peaceful and collaborative.
"Culture is just as important as strategy. And so we work hand in hand," he says.
"We think we have a decent strategy because we've been succeeding in the market for the last five years and the two in combination of great people make a great business," he adds.
