Corporate Excellence 2021

Shaping the ‘Invisible Leaders’ of Tomorrow In just five years, Autopilot Leadership Lab (ALLab) has led more than a thousand senior leaders across the globe in the implementation of the Autopilot Leadership ModelTM, a co-consultative cultural transformation journey that combines ancient Oriental wisdom with proven modern management theories. We take a closer look as ALLab celebrates its recent award from Corporate Vision Magazine for Best Management Consulting & Transformation Provider 2021 – Hong Kong. In the words of Lao Zi: ‘The best leaders are those who are barely known’. This philosophy, which describes the concept of the Invisible Leader, was first mentioned in the 6 - 4th century Chinese literature of Dao De Jing, one of the most popular works of philosophy that has inspired poets, thinkers, artists, readers and more for generations. Among the concepts it has inspired is the Autopilot Leadership ModelTM (AP Model), championed by Autopilot Leadership Lab Limited (ALLab) in Hong Kong. The AP Model combines the Invisible Leader concept with modern management theories of the Western world through a consultative Autopilot Leadership Journey that is designed to increase operational efficiency and strategic effectiveness within organisations by enabling management with ease and thereby unleashing the full potential of their teams to meet goals and achieve sustainable evolution. The AP Model incorporates six key elements: Choosing the Right Talent, High Trust Environment, Highly Effective Teams, Common Goal, Effective Empowerment and Coaching and Developing Talent. These elements form the co-creative process that business leaders, people-managers and entrepreneurs explore together, resulting in a collaborative journey that nurtures tomorrow’s Invisible Leaders. Since June 2016, ALLab as an independent Cultural Transformation Consultancy under the LKK Health Products Group of the Lee Kum Kee family, has been devoted to promoting and practicing the AP Model in partnership with business executives around the world, helping them to identify bottlenecks and then develop strategies to resolve their organizational and team issues within their businesses. Having seen how much of these executives’ time is lost to administrative tasks, meetings and the general chaos of managing the work-life balance, the founding team of ALLab sought to inspire companies derive their own solutions that would gradually transform organisational Jun21625 cultures through a co-creative process that translated into “Autopilot” organisations, culminating in the achievement of company goals. Enter the Autopilot Leadership Journey – a structured co-consultative framework that is customisable to the needs and ambitions of clients, but ultimately seeks to inspire change through a series of spiral-learning workshops spanning around seven to nine months. The aim of this Journey is to gather participants working together to transform the mindsets of business executives into ones that are practical, impactful, and effective. To do so, participants support one another in generating immediate next steps to deal with their own unique challenges and circumstances that may arise in the management of a business; face dynamic discussions within an open and inclusive environment in which entrepreneurs can gain a true understanding of those challenges and their repercussions; and engage in a self-reflective Journey as a team that promotes connectivity and inclusiveness so that participants can draw inspirations from one another. Recently, ALLab is actively developing Cultural Partnerships with SME and Start-up communities, borrowing its sophisticated experiences with listed companies and international organizations, offering consultation and board advisory services to achieve a winning culture that enables fast-growth despite under extreme business climates. As a result, ALLab is now a multi-award-winning company that has been trusted by businesses, professional associations and academic institutions in the US, UK, Greece, Korea, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and beyond. In a time that has been shaped by the global pandemic and resulted in a monumental shift in the new norms of working and leadership culture, ALLab is being relied on for its entrepreneurial spirit that manifests in innovation and technology now more than ever. As it enters its sixth year of operation, we look forward to seeing how ALLab continues to evolve as a trusted partner to the forward-thinking pioneers and Invisible Leaders of tomorrow.
