Check- 6 coaches share the best prac­tices learned in their pre­vi­ous mil­i­tary lead­er­ship ca­reers to im­prove lead­er­ship, team­work, and stan­dard­iza­tion with your teams.

We don’t add any new ad­min­is­tra­tive bur­dens on the crew; in­stead we stream­line the sys­tems al­ready in place to en­sure pro­ce­dural com­pli­ance and ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Help­ing your team get the job done right the first time, ev­ery time, is our goal. The re­sults we see are de­creased down time and re­portable in­ci­dent rates with si­mul­ta­ne­ous Im­prove­ment in op­er­a­tional per­for­mance.

Our fo­cus is to ac­cel­er­ate hu­man per­for­mance and en­sure clear and con­cise com­mu­ni­ca­tion to close the gap be­tween man­age­ment’s expectations and op­er­a­tional re­al­ity.

yoma Bank

Yoma Bank is one of Myan­mar’s largest pri­vate banks, with 2,400 employees and more than 50 branches na­tion­wide. The Bank was founded by Mr Serge Pun and its first branch was opened in Au­gust 1993 in front of the iconic Aung San Sta­dium in Yan­gon.

Yoma Bank has in­vested heav­ily in tech­nol­ogy to op­ti­mize its na­tion­wide branch net­work and is rec­og­nized for its ef­fi­cient re­mit­tance ser­vices. It was the first bank in Myan­mar to use a com­put­er­ized ac­count­ing sys­tem, and pi­o­neered wire­less bank­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions. By 2003 Yoma Bank had grown to be one of the big­gest banks in the coun­try with 41 branches in 24 cities pro­vid­ing se­cure and ef­fi­cient bank­ing ser­vices na­tion­wide.

In 2003, Myan­mar ex­pe­ri­enced a fi­nan­cial cri­sis which had a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on the bank­ing in­dus­try. This led to the clo­sure of many pri­vate banks while Yoma Bank’s busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties were se­verely lim­ited and had to sus­tain on do­mes­tic re­mit­tances. Yoma Bank’s re­mit­tance ser­vice still re­mains to be the most re­li­able and trusted in the coun­try.

A new chap­ter be­gan in Au­gust 2012 when Yoma Bank re­gained its full bank­ing li­cense. With more than 50 branches across Myan­mar, the Bank strives to be­come a lead­ing SME Bank in Myan­mar. With more than twenty years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in Myan­mar’s fi­nan­cial sec­tor, Yoma Bank is well po­si­tioned to sup­port the con­tin­ued growth of the Coun­try in this pe­riod of tran­si­tion.

Straits Green­field ( Se­dona Ho­tel)

The name Se­dona is de­rived from the pure white Den­dro­bium Se­dona orchid, which was bred for the first time in 1984 at the Sin­ga­pore Botanic Gar­dens. Un­der the care­ful nur­tur­ing of its breed­ers, it fi­nally bloomed in 1994 and was un­veiled at the launch cer­e­mony of Se­dona Ho­tels.

The Den­dro­bium Se­dona ex­em­pli­fies the same warmth, gra­cious­ness and per­son­able hos­pi­tal­ity the Se­dona brand strives to of­fer ev­ery vis­i­tor.

The font for the SE­DONA logo was specif­i­cally cre­ated to re­flect both the brand’s time­less el­e­gance and mod­ern lux­ury of­fer­ings.

The clas­sic serif in the first two let­ters of the logo (‘ S’ and ‘ E’) re­minds one of Se­dona’s cul­tural wealth and im­mer­sion in tra­di­tion. The san- serif let­ters (‘ D’,‘ O’, ‘ N’ and ‘ A’) that fol­low rep­re­sent Se­dona’s con­tem­po­rary com­fort and abil­ity to meet the mod­ern trav­eler’s needs.
