Being a part of this innovation quest is an honour, as it allows me to inspire and motivate my Pathfinders and Warriors to dream big and deliver significant contributions for the betterment of the bank.

Our accomplishments have been notable. We have measurably elevated scorecard priorities with a valuation of SGD $8,202,656 million for the upcoming 3 years. Our advancements are particularly pronounced in these areas: 1) Cultivating a more data-driven organisational culture, 2) Enhancing customer experiences, and 3) Alleviating pain points experienced by our employees.

This quest has honed my ability to become a strategic leader, empowering my Pathfinders to adeptly guide their cohorts and motivating my Warriors to champion innovative ideas from the grassroots. I have come to understand that true leadership extends beyond mere task completion; it encompasses the power to inspire, foster connections, and exert influence.

This fosters enduring positive memories for my army to cherish.

The crux of this program lies in the profound understanding that a Warrior embodies astounding adaptability and resilience.

In our pursuit of transformation, we comprehend that change is a process often accompanied by challenges and obstacles. Even when confronted with hurdles, we will rise with determination and resourcefulness. We will constantly learn, adapt, and refine our strategies. We do not succumb to discouragement or setbacks, instead we will forge ahead with indomitable resilience.

Throughout this quest, I learned the value of facing fears and adopting a Leadapreneur mindset. A great example was when we began the <Innovation project> in China. We started with brainstorming and a simple Excel roadmap, gradually building page designs with hyperlinks. The tech team then turned our plan into a prototype. It was a challenging process that taught me the journey matters as much as the destination.

My growth was not confined to technical prowess alone. I also improved my leadership and management abilities. Instead of just focusing on my immediate role, I learned to embrace a panoramic perspective which included the needs of <various departments>. This expansion of perspective enriched both my leadership acumen and my strategic insight.
