As for Mah Lok’s leadership style, one might describe the former director-general as a “people-centric” person with good governance. The concept of governance and leadership are intertwined, where both are critical for the achievement of MPC objectives. Having good governance enables a leader to be responsive to the present and future needs of the organisation, exercise prudence when it comes to setting policies and making decisions while also ensuring the best interests of stakeholders. Throughout his tenure, Mah Lok found it important to have good governance as it sets up one as a well-intentioned leader who can be relied on for his transparent, responsive, effective and inclusive manner of leading. It was no surprise that Mah Lok had a reputation as a mentor-like figure and hands-on leader who would guide his staff throughout projects. Ever keen to share his experiences with his team, he would help them form insight and develop their own processes from his own experiences.
