Through the Global Leadership Fellows programme, I was able to learn about the role of values in leadership decisions, especially in organizational and behavioural dynamics in complex and political systems. I have been able to apply these values to the work I am doing in Bhutan. Through public-private dialogue, the country can embrace the potential that a well-run private sector can bring to all stakeholders in the economy.”
