Justin Khoo (Mr)
Founder and CEO | 3Elements Leadership Group
Justin Khoo (Mr) is the founder and CEO of the 3Elements Leadership Group. He believes strongly that people matter, and that leadership makes the difference between success and failure – in both personal and professional contexts.
Justin has been actively studying leadership for over 20 years. He is well-read in many fields, ranging from the hard sciences to the arts and philosophy. His approach to leadership involves taking simple and intuitive truths, and making them tangible and measurable, so that anyone can apply these concepts in a structured and methodical way, to become an effective leader. He created the 3Elements brand based on this approach, and seeks to develop leaders of all ages and backgrounds.
Justin has developed 3Elements leadership models based on the following 2 principles:
- Leadership Science (Not Philosophy): the scientific study of leadership is independent of the personal values or beliefs of leaders;
- Effective Leadership is Measurable: effective leadership must be described using a practical, measurable framework.
Prior to this, he worked in an oil supermajor for 12 years, in numerous roles that covered project management, leading people, and organisational transformation. During this time, he attended numerous leadership courses, including the Kenan-Flager Executive Development programme.
Justin is ACTA-certified and holds a professional coaching certification. He graduated from the National University of Singapore with an Honours degree, and is an alumnus of the University Scholars Programme. He has also received an award for leadership development with his National Service unit, and has been recognised by various non-profit organisations for his pro-bono work with them.
He is an active volunteer leader, and has served in many different contexts, gaining a deep appreciation of the following principle: “Leadership is when people follow because they want to, even if they don’t have to.”
