Learning organizations "Made in Vietnam"

Respect Vietnam customized the world-known knowledge and frameworks to make learning organizations become a new learning and development (L&D) model “Made in Vietnam”. The key reason to bridge the widening gap between the strategy and execution in  


 Learning Organizations, The keys are ones that make all members in any organization learn how to learn, and apply what they learn to stay competitive, grow sustainable & and overcome high VUCA. 


The model skips most of the confusing & and hard-to-interpret concepts. allows simple interpretations for all members to practice the shared language, in defining where they are in the learning curves, how much they must learn more, and how far they can go together in achieving their shared goals and visions. The fundamental difference in the model is the simple way to define the knowing-doing gap within an organization, therefore closing the strategy-execution gap that has been common due t the severe misunderstanding from within, the miscommunication between decision-makers & decision-takers, the “over-engineering” solutions to organizational silos, and the vague line between the need to learn and the making sense of things around.

Labor Law Reform 2019 - pending questions 

Tia Sang Magazine: After the official ratification of the new Labor Code on the 20th Nov 2019, there is a number of respondents expressing their surprises. The reason was the number of delays since the Code revision was introduced due to the increasing 

disagreements over several controversial issues. As a labor & manpower expert who has consulted a great deal of companies, international organisations, 

corporations & governments, what is your take on the new highlights the Code has made?


RespectVN Founder: I think the new Labor Code finally got passed on 20 Nov 2019 after a number of delays is a good news. Before that every time a bill was issued a countless number of "heated" debates arrived, then cooled off and some time faded into silence.

Grab & Drivers: The relation is yet to be named 

RespectVN's Founder was interviewed about Grab and Grab drivers on Tia Sang Magazine, the official voice of the Ministry of Science & Technology.

Three takeaways from the article: Drivers & Grab: The relationship is not yet to be named:

1. One relationship is governed by 3 laws (Business Law, Civil Law, and Labor Law)

2. GIG economy: pros go away and cons come up when bargaining power is too unbalanced

3. Until laws are coherent, Grab should consider social responsibility on Business Model

Train the Trainers: 20 Hours Doing the Right Things Right

It is a growing acceptance that corporates must respect human rights & that corporate human rights abuse can have a significant impact on businesses. However global & local corporate human-right frameworks keep observing disappointingly low scores of responsible business conducts (RBC). 


Heavy investment on due diligence & due diligence reporting with unclear RBC boundaries as well as controversial RBC rankings likely demotivate corporates to perform RBC consistently & sustainably

along their global supply chains.

The online TOT was divided into 4 weekly sessions with enrollment of 50 professionals who aims to motivate individuals, corporates & their suppliers to provide more measurable & sustainable RBC practices.
