Outstanding Alumni Sharing Series — Boss Spirit

The Alumni Affairs Office of the Public Affairs Unit regularly organizes talks in which guest speakers such as leaders from the community and various sectors are invited to share their experiences. OUHK alumnus Mr Keith Lee, General Manager of Sales & Operations of Circle K Convenience Stores (HK) Ltd, was invited by Director of Public Affairs Mr Stephen Ng to speak at the Outstanding Alumni Sharing Series to talk about ‘Boss Spirits’ on 24 July. The talk attracted an audience of over 120 people.

Mr Lee began by telling his own story of ‘A man inside the cave’ to illustrate how he climbed up the career ladder through changing jobs from Laboratory Technician to Shop Assistant of Circle K, and was later promoted to his current position. He shared the experience of how Circle K managed to achieve a positive turnaround with its ‘Boss Spirit’. He further elaborated on the four elements comprising the ‘Boss Spirit’, which were Basis (providing job-related training for staff), Ownership (nurturing the enterprising spirit of staff to strive for success), Skill (encouraging staff members’ self-motivation to acquire various skills) and Simplification (simplifying the work flow).
