On Using Advisers.

Using advisers is nothing new in the practice of leadership. Advisers are used as a counter balance to modify our subjective assessments. Although proclaimed as objective, in the end our thoughts on something, are subjective. They are invariably coloured by our personal nuances and prejudices.

So we need a view from a second party- to provide a second opinion. Hence using advisers is not bad idea. Provided of course, we are not overwhelmed by the advice given by advisers. Some leaders like the Pahang MB has a natural and almost instinctive aversion to advisors. Advisors always give the wrong advise, he would protest.

When Tun Razak started the operations room to monitor economic progress of each district in Malaysia, he modelled it after the military operations centre. He was an admirer of Sir Gerald Templer, who contained the communist threat in Malaya. He has an English advisor who had joined the Malaysian Civil Service. The chap’s name was C.G Furguson. But Tun Razak was never overwhelmed by Furguson, and Furguson too played his role as – adviser and did not harbour any imperial motives.

Tun Mahathir had his advisors on many aspects of economic development. He consulted Ken Ohmae, a leading theorist on Strategy and Economics. Sakmongkol is sure Tun Mahathir availed himself to many more consultants and advisors. But Tun was never overwhelmed and the advisors knew their place.

Pak Lah, in principle was correct in having his panel of advisers. The bunch of highly intelligent young chikus who are well textbookread. Being young and brash, they probably lacked the finesse in dealing with the real world. Tasting unbridled power for the first time, or a sense of being all powerful, they made the mistake of assuming imperial postures. Second mistake- Pak Lah was overwhelmed.

You see, having advisors is nothing wrong provided you have the smarts not to e overwhelmed. Meaning, you yourself have to be of some grey matter material.

Now, our incoming PM has been warned on the perils of having his own 4th floor intellectual ogres. Does Najib have the intellectual firewall not be overwhelmed?

Sakmongkol has been very critical of the incoming PM. Even when sakmongkol was impaled by his own blackdog days, he has stopped short of saying Najib is a thicky. Sakmongkol believes that the incoming PM has the wherewithal to hold the lapdogs at bay. Allow sakmongkol to illustrate.

Many years ago, once in the incoming PM’s house at Jalan Duta, sakmongkol stumbled upon a partly read book by Francis Fukuyama on a sofa in the house. The incoming PM was reading the thoughts of Fukuyama which is one of his(Najib’s) favourite authors. He is also at home with current thinkers on management. We would be hard-pressed to locate any of the people within the current leadership who can talk and discuss blue ocean strategy. Once at his office in MINDEF, the incoming PM spoke to Sakmongkol about a management book he was reading. Sakmogkol had to hide his sheepish uneasiness for being one step behind our incoming PM.

So what can we make of the incoming PM? With a reading repertoire ranging from Fukuyama to Blue ocean Strategy, Sakmongkol believes he has the intellectual fortitude to ward of the intellectual lapdogs. Just like Tun M.

Sak, I find your statement that you believe DPM has the intellectual fortitude to ward of the intellectual lapdogs is too much to digest. If he has such a thing, how come any inkling of it did and does not manage to show itself at all in almost all of his speeches, talks or interviews? Highly unlikely, my friend, highly unlikely.

SAKMONGKOL IS NOW TRYING TO IMPRESS THE WORLD THAT HE USED TO BE CLOSE TO THE INCOMING PM, HAVING HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO PERSONALLY MEET HIM AT HIS HOUSE OR HIS OFFICE. WONDER WHAT SAKMONGKOL IS TRYING TO ACHIEVE BY REVEALING THIS IN HIS BLOG, HEHE.

Bro: The best political adviser one can have is 'The Prince'. If one khatams it thrice then no need for him or her to have any other living, highly-paid advisers.

Anonymous,  5 November 2008 at 10:49  

Come on la, reading or even quoting Fukuyama or Blue Ocean Strategy does not make one eligible to be considered as an intellectual. More often than not, those whose propensity is to show off that they have read some books are not intellectuals so much so that they have to do that to convince themselves and others that they are what they are not.

anwar pun banyok baca buku. Sampai buku keling ramayana pun dia baca. Tapi bila cakap hapah satu mende pun tak de. Cakap amboi la cantik. tapi bila dengor betul betul hampas. Tang najib tu koi tak tahu la. Org putih kata "bombastic" atau "telepantastic" macam lagu mat hitam tu. amende dalam cakap dia, yg tu koi pelik la sikit. dengor dia cakap kat Parlimen mlm tadi pasal bajet, tak nampok la pandai sangat.

Pandai cipta istilah macam glokal pun tak melambang orang tu intelek. Ada PhD macam Zahid Hamidi dan Shahidan Kassim pun belum melayak jadi intelek. Kita kena realistik. Kebanyakan (aku tak kata semua) pemimpin parti dan kerajaan di Malaysia ni mana ada masa nak baca buku2 serius nih. Sebab tu le dia kena ada penasihat2 dari golongan intelek. Tapi betoi le hujah asas Sak tu, bahawa penasihat ni penting. Orang kata how good or how far a politician is or will go depends on how good his adviser or inner circle is. Tak gitu kan Sak?

INI PELAJARAN NOMBOR SATU UNTUK DS NAJIB. TERBUKTI BETUL SEBAGAIMANA YG BERLAKU PADA PAK LAH.

"It makes one contemptible to be held variable, light, effeminate, pusillanimous, irresolute: which a prince must avoid as he would a shoal, and to scheme so that greatness, spiritedness, gravity, strength might be recognized from his actions, and to insist that his word be irrevocable concerning the private dealings of the subjects; and that he maintain himself in such repute that no one might think either of deceiving him or of getting around him."

sakmongkol AK47 aka Mat Tomoi 5 November 2008 at 11:47  

helo brothers,
you people seem to miss the point. 1) advisers are important
2) you must not be overwhelmed by them.
3) you yrself must have some sense of intelligence.
with 2 and 3, then advisers may be useful.
to anonymous 10:41
nothing to impress- sakmongkol was an ex adun from Pekan( Najib's area) and was his ketua penerangan.
see my earlier blogs critical of Najib. cant erase that part of my personal history, can I? th efact that you wrote yr comment in CAPITAL letters, tell us many things about you, kan? haha

ben,  5 November 2008 at 11:52  

I've no doubt that he can handle all his paid advisers and lapdogs but I am doubtful he can handle the all 'powderful' kitchen adviser ! ;-)

Read TDM's warning - "4th Floor advisers and FAMILY MEMBERS"

I suppose Chinese's pantang about No.4 is very true in this case. So maybe, changing to 3A Floor may not be a bad idea. Hehehe!

Anonymous,  5 November 2008 at 11:53  

For better or for worse, please expect this advice to be fully heeded by our incoming PM too, my fellow anonymous blogger and my fellow countrymen!

"Et etiam let him not care about incurring infamy for those vices without which he might hardly save the state; because, if one considers everything well, one will find that something that appears a virtue, if followed, would be his ruin, and that some other thing that appears a vice, if followed, results in his security and well-being."

"...a prince must not care about the infamy of cruelty in order to keep his subjects united and faithful; because with very few examples he will be more merciful than those who, because of too much mercy, allow disorders to go on, from which spring killings or depredations: because these normally offend a whole collectivity, while those executions which come from the prince offend an individual."

sakmongkol AK47 aka Mat Tomoi 5 November 2008 at 12:02  

i am sure DS Najib has read the Prince. but the Prince can also be likened to the ubiquitous "one minute guide" to everything. DS Najib is his own best counsel.
ah....the reference to the powerful kitchen cabinet....that's another matter. bellum domesticum!

Anonymous,  5 November 2008 at 12:02  

Ben, could not agree more with you on the importance of the kitchen adviser. I scratched my head after reading the revelation of the background of the kitchen adviser below. Any comment on its authenticity, Bro Sak, that you used to be close to incoming PM and close to some people walking at the corridors of power?

SIAPA ROSMAH MANSUR?
Posted by Post Master
Tuesday, 28 October 2008 16:58

Berasal dari Negeri Sembilan. Orangnya kecil molek, berkulit cerah dan mempunyai tahi lalat besar di pipi. Tahi lalat saiz duit siling lima puluh sen. Mengikut cerita orang-orang tua itu adalah tahi lalat bertuah. Kerana tuah tahi lalat itulah agaknya beliau dapat berkahwin dengan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Tetapi, sekarang khabarnya tahi lalat bertuah itu sudah dibuang. Khabarnya beliau pergi buat “plastic surgery” di Jepun. Banyak ribu juga habis. Tidak apalah kerana semua Najib yang tanggung. Duit rasuah yang Najib dari Vincent Tan pun tidak habis. Duit balak tidak usah kira, tidak luak.

Rosmah seorang wanita berpelajaran tinggi. Dapat ijazah dalam dan luar negeri. Bijak orangnya dan petah bercakap. Gaya dia bercakap memang boleh pikat hati orang, terutama kaum lelaki. Sayang kelulusannya disalahgunakan. Kelulusan tinggi digunakan untuk memancing orang-orang lelaki yang sudah beristeri dan berpangkat serta kaya-raya.

Menurut cerita mereka yang pernah tidur dengan Rosmah, sebagai teman permainan dan teman tidur beliau tidak menjemukan. Dia pandai bergaya dan “fashionable”. Senyuman dan jelingan boleh membuat lelaki hidung belang dan buaya seperti Ketua Menteri Melaka, Rahim Thamby Chik dan Najib Tun Razak melutut kepadanya.

Bekas pelajar Sekolah Menengh Tunku Kursiah, Seremban. Mengikut kawan-kawan yang sama bersekolah dengannya, beliau terkenal sebagai pelajar yang ego dan suka menunjuk-nunjuk. Tidak punya ramai kawan rapat di kalangan pelajar-pelajar perempuan. Tetapi punya ramai teman lelaki. Pantang nampak lelaki kacak dan berada. Sejak di sekolah menengah lagi sudah selalu bertukar-tukar pasangan.

Sebagai gadis lincah, kalau boleh dianggap masih gadis semasa menuntut di Universiti Malaya, beliau sangat popular dan terkenal di kalangan penuntut lelaki. Beliau menjadi Ahli Persatuan Kesuma dan aktif dalam pertunjukkan-pertunjukkan kebudayaan yang dianjorkan oleh pihak universiti. Secara peribadi dikatakan beliau ini sangat periang dan peramah.

Di antara Rosmah dengan Rahim Thamby Chik mereka sudah berkenalan sejak di kampus lagi tetapi, hanya sebagai kawan kenalan biasa sahaja. Rahim Thamby Chik juga terkenal buaya di kampus. Ada juga orang kata Rosmah ada taruh hati pada Rahim. Tapi perangkapnya tidak mengena. Rahim terlepas.

Sesudah bertunang dengan Aziz bekas suaminya beliau masih lagi berpoya-poya dengan lelaki lain. Beliau sungguh hebat dan “hot”. Pantang disapa oleh lelaki terutama yang kacak-kacak.

Dikatakan juga Rosmah suka main “jim ramy” dengan anak-anak lelaki Raja Nong Chik. Semasa itu beliau berminat kepada salah seorang anak Raja Nong Chik bernama Salleh. Ini setelah jadi isteri Aziz. Betul ke?

Ramai orang tidak sangka macam mana Aziz boleh tersangkut hati dengannya . Semasa di kampus lagi beliau sudah di cap sebagai jamban. Aziz budak baik dan lemah lembut orangnya. Dikatakan dia berkahwin dengan Aziz atas dasar suka sama suka.

Semasa berkerja dengan Island & Peninsular Bhd,. sebagai PRO, Rosmah berkesempatan bergaul dan berkenalan dengan ramai VIP, termasuk menteri-menteri dan timbalan menteri, perangai lamanya balik semula. Beliau ambil kesempatan dari tugasnya yang membolehkan dia selalu pergi “out-station” buat pertemuan-pertemuan sulit dengan lelaki terutama VIP yang diminatinya. Rosmah dilantik jadi pengurus kerana dapat banyak projek bagi pihak syarikatnya. Senang dapat projek kerana sanggup gunakan dirinya sebagai umpan. Bossnya Azwa sayang padanya dan naikkan dia pangkat.

Mengikut kata kawan-kawannya Rosmah pernah berkata walaupun satu hari dia mesti kahwin dengan orang besar. Dia gila kedudukan dan gila pangkat. Cita-citanya berjaya dapat kahwin Najib

Seorang kawan memberitahu, pernah seorang datin, isteri bekas seorang menteri yang sekarang dikatakan menjadi salah seorang Naib Presiden UMNO Baru memberitahunya, semasa Jemaah Menteri dan Timbalan Menteri mengadakan sidang mesyuarat di Sarawak, dalam masa rehat beberapa orang Timbalan Menteri dan Menteri telah bercakap tentang Rosmah. Mereka buat perbandingan sesama mereka tentang pengalaman masing-masing dengan Rosmah.

Kesimpulan dari cerita itu membuktikan seolah-olah kebanyakkan dari mereka telah meniduri Rosmah. Rosmah yang sekarang ini menjadi isteri Najib. Apakah ini sudah kerana jodoh? Kasihan Najib. Kalau cerita ini benar, Rosmah bolehlah juga dianggap sebagai janda tidak rasmi kepada ramai lelaki atau “spare tyre” mereka.

Isteri yang lebih cantik, lebih setia ditinggalkan dan ambil bekas sisa-sisa orang. Macam tidak ada perempuan lain.

Dari cerita orang yang rapat dengan Rahim Thamby Chik, sebelum Rosmah diperkenalkan kepada Najib beliau adalah kendak Rahim. Rosmah berharap dapat kahwin dengan Rahim. Rahim ini hebat orangnya dan bukan calang-calang lelaki. Rosmah tidak dapat tundukkan Rahim. Rahim lagi bijak darinya. Rahim tahu Najib suka perempuan-prempuan seperti Rosmah. Mereka satu kem. Kem buaya darat. Mengikut cerita kononnya dalam dia sudah jadi isteri Najib dia masih berjumpa Rahim. Betul ke? Kalau betul, jahat sungguh awak ni…

Untuk lepaskan dirinya dari Rosmah dia cepat-cepat paskan Rosmah kepada Najib. Dia beri pengakuan kepada Rosmah, kalau dia baik dengan Najib dia boleh dapat kawasan balak. Negeri Pahang banyak balak, Melaka tidak ada balak.

Rahim bukan mudah dikenakan orang. Di Negeri Melaka ketika dia menjadi Ketua Menteri, dialah raja. Mengikut cerita orang-orang Melaka kononnya beliau pernah menghalau Pegawai-pegawai Majlis Ugama Melaka dan Polis dari bilik hotelnya di Hotel Ramada. Mereka datang menyerbu ke bilik hotel itu apabila terima laporan ada orang berkhalwat. Apabila sampai ke bilik itu yang di dapati berkhalwat ialah Ketua Menteri Melaka sendiri Rahim Thamby Chik dengan seorang gadis jurujual.

Najib walaupun buaya besar seperti Rahim Thamby Chik, kena dengan Rosmah dia kalah dan terduduk. Lupa diri, lupa anak bini. Balak Pahang pun dia berikan kepada Rosmah. Hotel Hyatt Kuantan menjadi tempat mereka berkendak tidak kira siang atau malam setiap kali Rosmah datang ke Kuantan.

Apabila Najib ke Kuala Lumpur mereka berkendak di Hotel Shangri-la kerana Najib tinggal di situ dan pejabat Rosmah di Bangunan SPK berhampiran dengan hotel itu.

Sejak dia mengadakan perhubungan sulit secara haram dengan Najib dia lupa terus kepada suami dan anak-anaknya.

Mengikut cerita orang, Rosmah, Najib dan Toh Puan Rahah masa pergi ke Mekkah kali kedua, mungkin untuk membuang dosa kononnya, semasa dia berjalan mengelilingi Kaabah, dikatakan terkena baling batu yang tidak tahu dari mana datangnya.

U are critical from inside of umno. You are not an opposition member. u criticize your own leader. Seldom umno members are willing to do so openly. U play your role well bro. there are times when you can be too critical of your own boss and times when you are advocating for good. Its all for the sake of party’s future. It seems that you can balance them well bro. Frankly, I like reading your blog. you are my favourite blogger..

Old habits die hard. One of that is about not going to a meeting unprepared. Little did sakmongkol realize that, when we met that fateful night, under my loose sarung i had a miniature kerlian-wave detection machine, courtesy of the last foray behind the iron curtains. After the meeting, i immediately took out the machine (to the horrors of the other customers) and proceeded to analyze the readings. To cut the story short, the conclusion was quite favorable: intelligent, cultured, well-read, urbane and fair-minded. But there was something else which of course a machine cannot possibly tell to someone who had once had statesmen, ministers, directors, partners, advisers, and other ceo's, for breakfast (note: for, not to). That something was a deep concern for the rakyat spelled out as looking for ideas to make our world a better place for all.

Sakmongkol is not a man. He's the bridge we need to cross this chasm before us.

Having said that, i have to say i can disagree with some of the things he has written. One of which, the Pahang MB. I think Adnan is an ok guy. A bit wanting for looking like a woodcutter and behaving like a beaver out of Jerantut (or was it Raub or Bentong?), he has his heart in the right place. And then there's the other guy, Mahathir. Now i think this fellow is a statesman. Unfortunately he also wears an iron-fist. Whether wearing an iron-fist means one wears too thick an iron-mask for people to discern the heart and the mind is another matter entirely. The important thing is to look at the consequences of the actions taken and measure them against what was and what could have been at the time when each decision was made and action taken. But i am quick to add - the kerlian-wave machine sees everything. Do you want to know the readings?

After all these self-indulgences, allow me to come back to the topic of using advisers.

Advisers can be useful. They can also be deflating. Take the case of deflating. You walk into the motor showroom, hand in hand with the most stunning-looking gal east of the suez canal. Eyes turn to you. You beam with no small amount of pride. Well, before you can even say anything, the motor adviser comes over and says to you in front of her,

'hey, Pak Cik. I see you're still trying to drive a morris minor with two flat tyres. You should be going for the latest, biggest and most heart-pumping ultimate machine - for instance, this sleek, shiny jaguar with two big, and i mean huge, wheels.'

When you have advisers like that, who won't be able to connect the dots and see the state of this nation?

So, if still allowed, it remains to add that the reason we are all still looking for useful advisers is because this nation needs more than ever 'a few good men'. And how did this come about that the most popular need the most sagacious?

Think about it - and pity the politician. Every morning he has to face the full-length mirror of his isteri and puff up the chest, push in that belly, and swagger a look like errol flynn. He needs to look good, he tells himself. But more than that, he needs to face the millions of hoi-polloi out there and they are ready to bombard. As in the movie Hero, the hero gets it in the end, nailed to the gigantic wooden door by a thousand arrows fired at him in one go.

These times, they are a'changin'. In the past if he tells them yes, they won't dare say no. Now if he tells them yes, they to a voice ask 'why'? In some places, 'why, you piece of s#$@?!'.

That's why politicians need advisers. To the hype-puffed brawn, some brains to help formulate the right way to say the right thing to do.

But if the politician doesn't read, how can he possibly know what the heck his advisers are saying? Therefore the only thing one needs to worry is what he reads. If it's 'Mathematics & Sex', there is still hope - because it shows a wish to quantify achievables. That means setting benchmarks for standards, the thing that is in lamentably low supply these days. If it's 'Big Momma Likes To Dance', that's cause for concern because the last thing we need now is dancing. So if it's 'Blue Ocean Strategy', why not? We surrounded by oceans and we are a trading nation after all. Even our sailors are nabbed by somalian pirates, as proof. The problem will be if it's Machiavelli's 'The Prince'. Does it mean he only sees it as a game to win, or a counter-offensive weapon, or what? Orders are open next Monday for these fine kerlian-waves measuring machines. Going cheap.

footnote:

Please be advised: these machines emit images into mobiles, so do be careful where you use them, especially when they're turned on while under sarungs or pants.

Salam. Who knows what happened to Tengku Puteri Zainah, the Kelantan princess whom Najib divorced for allegedly being insane, and was she really insane? If we could not manage our own family, or alternatively if we could not even know how to evaluate the suitability of a person to become our spouse, what is the probability of us successfully managing our country?

Datuk Ariff, hope you can analyze the contest for Deputy and Vice Presidents. In your view, who will win and what impacts will it have on UMNO as a whole? Have been thinking why DPM is not openly endorsing Muhyiddin or why Hishamuddin even encouraged for people contesting Muhyiddin. Your reading is very interesting and intellectually stimulating that you need to seriously consider yourself as being THE adviser.

On one hand, we said we want a strong leader. On another, we said the leader needs to be advised properly. But these two seem to be irreconciliable. The former will render the latter no loner necessary while the latter will render the former unachievable. For a strong leader must be highly intelligent and a highly intelligent leader will not need the help of any adviser (if formality requires advisers to be there then advisers need to be there but their role is minimal, that is merely advising, with the decision entirely made by the leader). Am I right, Sak?

Great piece of writing, Sak.
Make no mistake about it, Dato' Seri Najib, as was his glorified dad, is not one who is going to be overwhelmed by his advisers.
From your admirer

A Tabib 6 November 2008 at 07:27  

You've hit the nail on the head AK. Another Bullseye.

The danger of using advisers is that one can become so enthralled by them that one becomes one of them - "go native" so to speak. So a fair amount of independent thinking is required.

Templer was known to wear a kain pelikat in the house (King's) and eat durian but there was never a danger of his going completely native.

Najib is not his father but he seems to be well briefed and quite clued up. he doesn't come across as someone who's outsourced his thinking unlike the lame duck incumbent.

How come you haven't written today, AK? Any take on Obama becoming US President?

Zawi 6 November 2008 at 09:36  

Sak,
There is no harm in having advisers. In fact it is necessary for leaders to have advisers. Even The President of USA have advisers.
The problem with our incoming PM is not of his intellectual ability or the advisers but one of integrity. With too many unanswered problems seeming related to him, he doesn't seem to have much integrity and credibility. Without these two attributes how can one leads a nation and expect other nations up to the nation that he leads? He will be just another Bush. Malaysians are praying for an Obama to be born among us.
