When I was a kid, I cheated in a school test. Why?

Since I can remember, I was told that I was gifted, talented and destined for success. I had taken on a fixed mindset. Here's why you not being perfect is exactly what you want to hear.

In order to work together in a team, you need to understand each other as people first. It has to go beyond top down policies and values.

You need to answer a very important question: How do we do what we do?

Here's how our cultural manifesto guides our day to day work.

Some might say my routines to improve productivity are obsessive. I'd say they are effective. And obsessive.

Here's five habits you might want to consider yourself.

What routines do you use to improve your focus and productivity?

Over the 2015 Christmas break, I committed to five new habits. Coming up to halfway through 2016, I’ve seen huge gains. At the risk of sounding obsessive, here are five habits you should consider adopting yourself.

Teaching your parents how to sync their iPhones forces us to be in the present, and to demonstrate zen-like patience.

And here’s the irony. It’s exactly this level of patience that our parents showed us when we were growing up.

It's easy to feel more like IT consultants than offspring when you visit parents. And yet, I've learnt that teaching my parents technology is one of the best things I can do. For me.

What my grandfather taught me about being a human - being the best aid worker in the world is meaningless without being good to those around you.
Weh Yeoh reflects on his grandfather's life and shares the lessons he's learned about leaving a mark on the world, and on those around him.

No one knows the future life. But everybody wishes for himself a good future.

What do you do when you find a huge need, for over 600,000 people, of which tens of thousands of them are dying every year, that no one else is focussing on? What if a country was losing $400 million a year because of it? What would you do if you had both a plan and an incredibly cost effective grassroots organisation to address this problem?

Unless we stumble across a miracle in 2 months, the answer is, we will walk away from it all. This is a story that will restore your faith in foreign aid, but it may also break your heart. Check out my article on The Huffington Post.
For the past year, I have worked, mostly on a voluntary basis, with CABDICO, a local Cambodian non-profit organization working with people with disabilities....

How do you wade through a sea of good causes to find one worth supporting?

Through volunteering and working in countries like Vietnam, China, India and Cambodia for the better part of a decade, these are 10 truths I’ve learnt about helping people in the Global South.

As a younger employee, my notion of leadership was completely wrong. I thought the function of the leader was to tell people what to do. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Here's why we need to throw the word "boss" out the window.

John C. Maxwell said: "The difference between a boss and a leader is that a boss says, “Go.” A leader says, “Let’s go.”" We need to throw the word “boss” out the window.

We could probably work for every single minute of every day, and never get it all done. And yet, I've noticed that getting us to stop work at OIC helps us to answer some very important questions.

I wish more of us wanting to help would first listen and reflect, without necessarily launching into action.

Three years ago, I discovered that hundreds and thousands of people with communication disabilities could not go to school or get jobs in Cambodia. An equal number were at risk of dying due to not being able to swallow. And yet, there was not one locally trained speech therapist in Cambodia.

Starting OIC from nothing has been a rewarding and extremely difficult challenge. Though we've made mistakes, we've always acted on our values. In line with this, it's time for me to step back from my role and hand over to a local Cambodian leader.

In my first blog post, on my snazzy new website, I explain why.

Please like my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WehYeoh/), and share this post widely.

A huge thank you to Julia Dotras and Philip Nalangan for their dedication and patience in getting this site up and running.

 Effective marketing brings attention and donations. Good development work improves the lives of poor people. Can the two coexist? I say no and here are five reasons why not.
Effective marketing brings in viewers and donations. Good development work should improve the lives of poor people. Are the two incompatible? Weh Yeoh says yes.
