Abstract


In this article, the practitioners/academicians examine leaders who care from the Confucian perspective in South East Asia, more so, in the Singapore and Brunei Darussalam context. Using Chinese sayings and proverbs, the authors present and interpret Confucian values derived from the sagely wisdom of Confucius. From Confucius comes the emphasis on caring leadership which is linked to positive, harmonious relationships as well as to the values of benevolence, integrity and reciprocity that bring many benefits to business prosperity. The practices of Confucian teachings can bring much peace, learning, and growth for business sustainability.
