There are 3 main disruptions we can find hitting business and work:

  • Ai and technology
  • Micro-disruptions or events that comes in waves
  • People

As these changes affect businesses, it will directly affect the lives of the individuals in the workplace. Change is not new when it comes to business and work, and looking back at the past eras of change we see some succeed and thrive through crisis and reach better heights. So, what sets them apart? What can we learn that we can apply in future crisis or change?

When the world feels out of control, the first thing we need to do is to focus on the things that we can control: our selves. This training program was built by Francis to touch on the essentials a person needs for personal success.

“We live in a world of uncertainties. Change happens too fast. Even change is changing and accelerating. This brings us to a state of anxiety because the things that are changing are outside our control.

What we can do is this:
When you know what’s coming, Prepare.
When you don’t know what’s coming, Position.

Call me an eternal optimist, but I am positioning myself to explore and exploit new opportunities that will open up when disruptions happen.”

Francis Kong

“If you face any difficult situation, it would be best not to go on auto-pilot or be reactionary.

Think before you act.

Think twice before you speak.

And think thrice before you move.

This is called being intentional and strategic. This enables us to make better decisions.”


Designed to promote personal excellence and growth


Success is where action, preparation and opportunities meet, and preparation involves knowing. Fear is maximized in the unknown. This training is our pursuit to know so we can grow.
