Up close & personal with Robin Sharma

  • Saturday, 16 May 2009

IN the ballroom of a magnificent hotel in Selangor, sit a rapt audience of nearly 350 people from various walks of life, listening intently to the rich, emotive baritone of one of the world’s most popular leadership and performance coaches, Ugandan-born Canadian Indian Robin Sharma.

“What would you want page 299 of your 300-page autobiography to say?”, Robin throws the challenge to the audience. Just as we’re mentally chewing on that one, he releases more tinctures of motivation, some of which he readily admits sounds “cheesy”. “We don’t appreciate work until we arrive at our retirement party.” “Don’t postpone. You never know when is your last day.” “Problems are precious things as they introduce us to the dormant pockets of genius we didn’t know we had.”
