Speaker: Dr. Ron Brown,
Whether you are senior manager in a multinational, or still climbing the corporate ladder, the challenges of leadership are still the same… and especially heightened in Hong Kong. This may be one of the most international cities in the world, with expatriates and locals working together on a team — but many times, tensions arise as leadership gets lost in translation, and execution. The speaker addressed the nature of politics in your organization, the relationship between power and leadership, the unique cultural and gender challenges in gaining and using power and leadership, how to develop personal strategies for achievement, power and leadership and what needs to change? What do you need to change?
