With extensive organisation development practitioner experience in developing leaders in more than 14 countries over the last 30 years, Dr. Peter Cheng and Dr. Lily Cheng have developed a leadership development system that delves into the heart of leadership — and the heart of organisational excellence.
By closely examining the “Who-ness” and “What-ness” of authentic transformational leadership, Real Leaders™ is a total leadership development solution that consists of a 360 feedback system, the Real Leaders™ workshop — with textbook and workbook materials, and long term implementation reviews. Real Leaders™ believes in the need to empower leaders to champion culture and sustain performance excellence by developing their 6 Cs of "What-ness": Competence, Creating an Inclusive Environment, Compassion, and "Who-ness": Character, Conviction with Courage and Credibility.While many leadership development programmes focus on leadership behaviours alone, Real Leaders™ helps leaders to understand how their unique leadership philosophy can be honed to help achieve organisational goals. To complete the ‘equation’, Real Leaders™ help sustain organisational excellence by ensuring that they Shape Culture and Drive Performance. Real Leaders™ is also unique in that its framework can be applied to all levels of leadership — starting from new managers all the way to the top management.
Framework for Real Leaders
Leadership is a critical factor for organisational success. It is an intentional engagement process that influences others to achieve a common goal. A leader ensures that the organisation's people, system and structure are coherently aligned to achieve organisational goals. A Real Leader™ further champions the embracement of shared values by organisation members and drives performance to achieve breakthroughs that establish new performance benchmarks. Real Leaders™ also recognise the importance of a personal connection with the people they work with. They build relationships with their constituents and earn their commitment, that is critically needed for their organisations to navigate through the business challenges.
Leading with authenticity and a legacy for others to follow; Real Leaders™ inspire their people to a higher level of excellence that is needed to achieve breakthroughs in both good and rough times. They are approachable, trustworthy and influential. Their constituents follow more readily and are more committed to the organisation’s success.
Real Leaders™ are authentic and make a positive impact on individuals and the community that they live in. They exercise great responsibility and utilise their personal influence for the benefits of others — and eventually, for the benefit of their organisations. Real Leaders™ are also real learners, who can be developed intentionally and effectively given the right tools and environment.

The leader’s ability to perform what is expected and required for the position. The ability to equip followers with the requisite knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes to perform their role efficiently and effectively.
The leader’s ability to create an inclusive environment that followers feel comfortable in, due to the respect for relationships formed with each other. Diversity is valued, making for great synergy and satisfaction at work.
The leader’s ability to exercise care and concern by putting oneself in the shoes of others. It is the ability to empathise with followers in their predicaments and provide the needed support to see them through.
The Leader adopts a good character, the right attitudes, and works on attributes that applaud prosocial behaviours for the common good of others in the community. The leader encourages followers to embrace the high morals and ethical practices to make the world a better place.
The leader embraces strong beliefs within ethical and moral parameters that drive him to make explicit stands that will not easily falter or be compromised. The leader pushes followers to pursue ennobling agendas that impact the community they all live in.
The leader holds clear values and chooses to walk the talk consistently. The leader enlists followers through shared values, resulting in the achievement of a common good. What our followers will remember us by when we leave the organisation – it is about what we have done and who we are.
