Tightening the Screws on Corruption Risk Management (a programme covering Leadership, Governance & Anti-Corruption)

Corruption, as defined by Transparency International, is “the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It can be classified as grand, petty and political, depending on the amounts of money lost and the sector where it occurs”. Corruption can cause an erosion on public trust and on the legitimacy of both public and private institutions. Its effects can be catastrophic to a national economy, particularly at a time when open global markets can rapidly reverse capital and investment flows due to the compromise on trust and confidence in the economy.

The National Anti- Corruption Plan (NACP) was launched by our Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamed, on 29th January 2019. The Plan seeks to instil clear and strong principles of transparency, accountability and integrity as well as good governance to combat corruption that has eroded the wealth of this nation. The Plan is to create a corruption-free ecosystem for the future generations and to move the country into a developed nation. In order to move towards a corruption free nation, organisations, both from the public and the private sectors, should be implementing clear strategies to achieve this common goal. One of the strategies should include embedding a Corruption Risk Management System within the Enterprise Risk Management system of the organisation. This programme seeks to assist all participants to first understand the need for such a strategy. In order to do so, this programme will take you through a journey of seeking what your true purpose is and then align the values that you would like to maintain as a person, as a leader and as an organisation. From there, participants will delve into the nuts and bolts of creating a comprehensive Corruption Risk Management system, identifying corruption risks areas as well as the controls required to mitigate, eradicate or minimise both the impact and the probabilities of the risks occurring. Participants will experience a guided methodology which is practical and usable immediately as they complete the 3-day programme. Continuous support in the form of 3 coaching sessions will be carried out after the 3-day programme to ensure that participants are able to oversee and maintain the Corruption Risk Management System implemented for their respective organisations. At a later stage, a skill assessment could also be conducted to facilitate the learning process and to ensure that the learning objectives set out are met. Participants could seek accreditation as well. At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
  • discover the purpose and values they wish to uphold and instil as the culture in their lives, workplace and employees
  • develop the necessary processes required for a CRM framework – CRM strategy and policy, corruption risk assessment process, risk monitoring and reporting to the relevant Board Committee and ultimately to the Board
  • develop corruption risk contents of quality that can provide management and the Board sufficient information to make informed decisions
  • Prepare the relevant corruption risk documentation – corruption risk map, risk summary, risk registers, risk action plans, risk monitoring and reporting.
“Leaders of the country must show their commitment against corruption at the outset and followed down the line by various sectors, organisations, and every family unit in the community at large. It must be em- bedded in the mind of all Malaysians that it is critical for us to combat corruption if we want to achieve de- veloped nation status. We strongly urge every head of departments, be it public sector, private sector, pub- lic interest entities, state-owned enterprises and non-governmental organisations to be together in this effort.” – Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad  


Session 1: Leadership Redefined
This session challenges the popular notions about leadership and redefines it into something a lot more personal and human. Participants will gain insight into how leadership must be rede- fined.
Session 2: Finding Personal Leadership Energy
Here, participants will be guided through a powerful framework to find long-lasting “Personal Leadership Energy“ to move ahead even when everyone has lost faith. With this, they will be able to clarify and prioritize their personal values (eg. integrity, courage, accountability, transpar- ency) and purpose to successfully lead themselves, their teams and the organisation.
Session 3: Overcoming the Challenges of Strong Leadership Energy
Participants in this segment will uncover the deep inner strength required to continue to act per- sistently on their core values and purpose despite tough resistance for the creation of a better future. This will lead them to create and foster inspired followership.
Session 4: Re-shaping Your Leadership Legacy
At the end of this session, participants will develop a whole new perspective on leadership, be- ing able to differentiate between simply living and leading a life. The content will anchor firmly the “why” of their leadership leading them to embrace more meaningful and fulfilled lives. This will then be translated as the culture they can instil in the organisations they lead
