New Leadership Book Showcases Kellogg Expertise On Asia
Leadership Experiences in Asia: Insights and Inspiration from 20 Innovators, was inspired by the business challenges confronting students in the Kellogg-HKUST program, DeKrey says. Alumni of the Kellogg School and the joint program contributed much of the text. The book highlights the importance of "multiple cultural leadership skills," which DeKrey notes are needed not just in Asia but increasingly in the West. "In Asia, particularly, it's critical for leaders to accept cultural differences across borders," he said. "The result is a more flexible and persuasive leadership style that is typical in Asia and necessary for success."
