SIKLUS KEHIDUPAN

Halo! Sudah cukup lama yang tidak menulis blog. Dalam posting kali ini saya akan membuat tiga tulisan berseri mengenai visi, tagline, dan warisan kita. Ternyata butuh waktu cukup panjang bagi saya menulis hal ini. Saya berharap Anda menikmatinya. Jika Anda melihat HDI belakangan ini, Anda akan melihat tagline Live Learn Love selalu “menempel” di dekat logo kita. Ini bukan sekadar tagline, namun juga sebuah refleksi dari nilai-nilai perusahaan kita. Dalam banyak kesempatan, orang-orang mendatangi saya dan mengatakan mereka menyukai tagline ini karena sederhana, namun mengandung arti yang dalam, dan mereka merasakan ikatan emosi kepada tiga kata ini. Tetapi tagline kita

Well, it’s taken me a little longer than I expected but I hope you enjoy this read If you know HDI today, you will see our tagline “Live Learn Love” accompanying our logo everywhere. Its not just a tagline however- it also reflects on the values of our organization. Many times, I have people coming up to me and telling me that they love it. It is simple, yet

The Dreamer dan Mimpi nya

Ini merupakan artikel yang terdiri dari 3 bagian dimana saya akan membahas mengenai visi, nilai-nilai dan warisan HDI. Halo! Banyak orang menanyakan tentang apa yang saya lihat akan terjadi di HDI di masa mendatang. Mungkin kata yang lebih tepat adalah apa yang saya rasakan. Bagi saya, bisnis merupakan investasi emosional. Saat pertama bergabung dengan HDI, saya punya ide-ide tetapi sangat sedikit pengetahuan tentang bagaimana hal-hal bekerja. Saya memiliki ego. Saya cepat mengkritik. Saya ingin merubah banyak hal terlalu cepat dan terlalu dini tanpa memahami dulu bagaimana keadaan sebelumnya. Saya mencoba melihat masa depan saya di perusahaan ini. Namun masa depan

The Dreamer and His Dreams

*This is a 3 part article where I discuss about the vision, values and legacy of HDI. Hello! Many people have asked me about what I see happening for HDI in the future. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say what I feel. Business to me is an emotional investment. When I first joined HDI, I came in with ideas but very little knowledge about how things worked. I had an ego. I was quick to criticize. I wanted to change things too quick and too fast without first understanding what was the past. I tried to see my

Selamat Ulang Tahun!

Selamat ulang tahun, selamat ulang tahun! Selamat ulang tahuuuuun, selamat ulang tahun! Lagu itu, dinyanyikan setahun sekali, mengingatkan kita akan saat-saat paling membahagiakan kita. Inilah saat perhatian semua orang tertuju pada kita, dan rasanya mereka mengakui kita juga. Belum lama ini, saya berkesempatan untuk mendengarkan seorang pebisnis ternama berbicara tentang bagaimana ia mengembangkan bisnisnya. Ia berbicara tentang bagaimana ia membangun berbagai hubungan dari nol dengan mendatangi orang-orang yang sepenuhnya tidak ia kenal. Namun yang lebih penting, ia berbicara tentang bagaimana mengelola hubungan-hubungan tersebut. Salah satu hal yang ia bicarakan adalah tindakan sederhana mengucapkan selamat ulang tahun. Ia mengatakan bahwa semua

Happy Birthday to You! (English)

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to yooooouuuu, Happy Birthday to you! That song, sung once a year, reminds us of our happiest times. It is the time when everyone’s attention is on us, and it feels like they are acknowledging us as well. Recently, I had the opportunity to listen to a very distinguished business person speak about how he grew his business. He talked about how he built relationships from scratch by approaching complete strangers. But more importantly, he talked about how he managed those relationships. One of the things he mentioned was the

SAYA KEMBALI!

Halo semua! Akhir pekan lalu, saya terbang ke Balikpapan untuk meresmikan pembukaan Family Centre di sana. Sehari sebelum pembukaan, mereka mengadakan makan malam yang indah bagi saya di mana kita bisa duduk dan mengobrol bersama. Tapi sepertinya, semua orang gugup atau mungkin juga malu, tapi seiring berjalannya waktu, cerita dan berbagi pengalaman pun mulai bergulir. Saya senang mendengar bagaimana orang berbicara tentang bagaimana mereka mengetahui bisnis HDI, apa yang meyakinkan mereka untuk bergabung, atau keampuhan produk- produk HDI. Setiap cerita memiliki kisah yang berbeda tapi di tiap kisahnya sama-sama menyentuh hati saya. Saya menyukai cerita tentang Enterpriser yang dimulai sebagai

I’M BACK!

        Hello Everyone!  Last weekend, I flew down to Balikpapan to celebrate the opening of our new Enterprise Family Centre there. The day before the opening, they organized a wonderful dinner for me where we got to sit down and chat together. It seems like everyone is nervous or shy, but as the evening progressed, stories were told and experiences shared. I loved to hear how people talk about how they heard about the HDI business, what convinced them to join, or effectiveness of the products. Every single story was different- but every one of them was equally

INTRAPRENEURS ARE BUSINESS OWNER’S DREAM

Recently, the focus has been mostly on entrepreneurs. Everyone is figuring out how to jump on this bandwagon and start a business of their own. However, there is another title that hasn’t got as much attention — that of an “intrapreneuer”— defined as an employee who is given the financial support and the freedom to create new services, products, systems and processes, and who does not need to follow the company’s usual rules or policies. Intrapreneuers are business owner’s dream. They are able to identify key markets, create new niches and are constantly helping the organization innovate. They are, however,
