4- Your Workplace Reflects You

Draw from his experiences, as he highlights the most significant of his beliefs: That success is unattainable without belief in your workplace, its vision, and its impact.
5- Embrace Lightbulb Moments
In starting a high-risk airline with no prior experience, Tony fragments the transformative power of having a purpose-driven vision, and taking that leap from a stable corporate job to an entrepreneurial arena despite overwhelming advice against it.

7- Put Wings on A Fairy Tale
As his mission broadened, Tony was sure not to let the more microscopic aspects slip away. What does it mean to charge separately for baggage and meals? Or, what is a pair of steps to an aerobridge? As options go, Tony highlights the importance of convincing others of your vision and the enduring impact of such a revolutionary approach to detail.
8- Map Out A Leadership Journey
How is true leadership proven in adversity? The eighth lesson narrates Tony’s hands-on response to the Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501 crash, demonstrating his specific approach to direct engagement and accountability during difficult times— In turn, setting a new standard in crisis management.

11- Winning A Losing Battle
In reflection, Tony speaks on his notable ventures within various industries; Such as, his stints participating in Formula One and shareholding in a football club. The eleventh lesson breaks the stigma of financial losses, instead holding an emphasis on how to resolve these consequences into productive business practices.
12- In It For The Long Haul
Thematic to the tale, alongside the rest of Tony’s course is a conclusive importance of inner strength and perseverance, particularly when facing setbacks like the COVID-19 pandemic or the loss of an aircraft, underscoring that true grit is most needed and revealed during tough times.

All the courses in the DIRI programme have something interesting to share. Depending on what you prefer, choose the one that suits you best or choose as many as you want, as each marvellous mentor gives you something different to think about and incorporate into your life.

Tan Sri Nazir Razak’s course is very interesting too. It gives a different perspective on many things. I personally like the part about “Second Impressions” as it’s something I had never really thought about before. Everyone talks about “First Impressions” but by listening to him, you realise that there’s a chance to make a better “Second Impression”, if that’s what it takes to reach your goals.

He shares about how having been born with a silver spoon can actually be a disadvantage at times. When he was a fresh graduate and he first applied for a job at CIMB, he was rejected as they assumed he would not be willing or able to put in the hard work, long hours and dedication required for the job. He had to try again, appeal and convince them that he had the qualities and grit to do the job well. He shares that his life has been about building “Second Impressions” as people have tended to judge him based on what they hear of him.

An inspiring man who has so much to share, the best way to glean all the knowledge he can share on achieving success in the corporate world is to sign up for the course.

The course with Datuk Nicol David is also worth looking at. It has many exhilarating moments as she shares the story about the match where she was lagging so far behind that it was almost impossible in the eyes of onlookers that she could win, but win, she did! She shares insights on how to focus and also live life in a fulfilling way and it’s done in a warm, friendly manner that uplifts learners.

Are you already convinced to try one of the courses? From what I’ve experienced with a few of them, the courses give valuable insights which are presented in a great way. For those who are still in the corporate world, young entrepreneurs or motivated students, I think they will find the courses inspiring and helpful. In fact, anyone who is looking for personal growth and development will also probably enjoy these courses and find something useful to enhance their lives and make it better!

DIRI is offering an exclusive opportunity for learners. For a limited time, their courses are available for RM149 each course, discounted from RM199, with 1-year access. This offer presents an exceptional chance for individuals to invest in their personal development at an accessible price point to encourage lifelong learning. Check out diri.my for more information on DIRI.
