For Benedict Sison, the new country head and CEO of Sun Life Financial Philippines, family values play a part in his leadership. 

"I think it helped the our parents instilled in us the value of hard work, drive and determination. So for me, what's really important is that it's really our attitude," shared Benedict who was named by his parents after Saint Benedict. 

Medallions of St. Benedict will also be found in various corners of his office. 

"That was given to me by my sister when she found out I'm now the CEO of Sun Life. She told me, 'Remember what our parents told us? St. Benedict will be there to protect you to make sure you will be happy in what you're doing; that you'll be successful in what you're doing,'" he recalled. 

Sison said it's also important to put clients at the center of his leadership mission.
