No self-respecting person enjoys the indignity of being managed so I’ve made a point of coaching and mentoring my staff and colleagues as a First Among Equals. Several have continued to tap me as a Mentor even after moving to other companies, industries and countries.
In 20 years based in Singapore, permanent resident Mike Langton has founded and led 5 companies from start-up to market leadership. He has turned around others when they had stumbled. In the process he has worked with the top echelon of local and multinational companies in the Asia-Pacific region, as clients and as listed company managers he reported to.
Mike has an economics degree, an MBA, qualifications in financial planning and wealth management, and the INSEAD AVIRA C-suite programme in his tool-kit. With those he is well versed in theories that supplement his wide experience of practical issues that most business leaders face at work and in their personal lives.
As a founder of one of the most successful digital consulting firms in Asia, Mike is up-to-date in the latest social, location and mobile technologies and related commercial practices which today’s business leaders must be conversant with.
Corporate MentoringIf management isn’t creative, today’s businesses will fail. The first job of a leader requires power to control and power to develop.

We hear about tough love from time to time. It is meant to be a caring but disciplined form of control by parent or by manager. It conjures up images of barking Sergeant-Majors on the parade ground, or of bosses meting out unpleasant orders softened by an Ang Pow.
