“A leader is someone who wants to be led”

Handry Satriago: “A leader is someone who wants to be led and can be led by others!!!”

A leader is someone who wants to be led and can be led by others. Wherever they are, a leader will always be sure of what they will achieve. A leader will not pretend to chase power and popularity. A leader is someone who will work fully and feel the pride when their work is useful for the people.”


The CEO of General Electric (GE) Indonesia, Dr Handry Satriago, stated it loud and clear. This statement also reflects the enthusiasm of the participants of the event CEO Speaks on Leadership which was organized on Monday, August 26, 2013.

In the interactive dialogue, Firdaus Alamsjah, Ph.D (Executive Dean, BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL) became the moderator. In the event, which lasted for almost two hours, Dr Handry discussed on how someone should be able to lead themselves before leading others. For him, the quality of a true leader can be seen from the way he handles difficult problems and solve the issues.

This can be seen clearly within the values of the leadership named “We all RISE” which is applied at General Electric. In it, it is mentioned that one of the most important task of a leader is to develop strong new leaders. Moreover, Dr Handry also explained the development of in the next few years and his vision for GE Indonesia in the next five years.

His friendly attitude and his extensive knowledge made a lot of people attracted to Handry Satriago. We can see this from the enthusiasm of the participants, who are not only coming from BINUS, but also from other companies. Ari is one of them.

The Head of Marketing of HSBC said that this is the first time he attends the event CEO Speaks in BINUS. Ari also added that Handry Satriago is a very inspiring person and the information which he has gained during the discussion will be applied in his line of work.

The same thing was stated by Adit, one of the IT staff in Kompas. Adit said that Handry Santiago is a familiar figure. Handry’s down-to-earth character was able to motivate the participants to strive and be a good leader. (Karunia Fransiska)
