Increased globalization in today’s business environment demands greater appreciation of different cultures and the type of leadership that wins without boundaries. “Winning without Confrontation”, the core teachings from the Art of War by Sun Tzu, a great ancient Chinese military strategist, represents the unique aspect of Eastern thinking. To accomplish this strategic positioning and win, Sun Tzu articulates several fundamental principles in his legendary book Art of War, these principles are still very much applicable in today’s international business management.
