Human performance improvement and Confucian values

Abstract

Prof. Dr. K. C. Patrick Low and Sik Liong Ang

Human performance improvement and performance management are discussed through the visor of Confucian values. In line with the Way of the Tao and filled with Confucian values (‘Heavenly directed’), the Confucian (person) leader, learns and grows in terms of his or her ability or competence, overall character and motivation. There is continuous learning and improvement, and he or she increases his or her ability to become efficient and productive. And not only that, not only being just and with moral courage – in spite of obstacles, he or she takes the challenges; he or she acts and stands tall. This article is an adaptation of Low’s (2013a) ‘Confucian Leadership, D Way’.
