About the course

Develop global leadership skills to advance your career as we focus on effective training for high-achieving Asian-American executives.

Curriculum. Confidence. Connections. Community. In six intense days, you’ll learn global business leadership skills from Stanford GSB faculty. You’ll meet successful Asian-American leaders and hear personal stories from the C-suite.

You’ll have a unique opportunity to build a strong community based on shared experiences, and develop a personal action plan to transform classroom learning into personal and professional success.

Stanford’s Advanced Leadership Program for Asian-American Executives is the first of its kind to address the gap in effective training for high-achieving Asian-American executives.

Learn how to lead cross-functional teams to compete for tomorrow’s global assignments. Develop personal strategies for building power and influence. Recognize Asian and Western cultural biases and competencies. And find out how to get more of what you want.

Curriculum

How can you reach the highest levels of leadership? How can you turn challenges into opportunities? How do you compete and win?

Designed in conjunction with Asian-American senior executives, the program provides a rigorous curriculum so that you can develop the leadership skills you need to succeed. Complementing the classwork and group exercises are informal networking opportunities with Asian-American senior executives, thanks to our collaboration with Ascend and Asia Society.

Program Highlights

Building Power and Influence: Personal Strategies

Even though cooperation and collaboration are valued in organizations, they remain inevitably hierarchical. Because aspiring leaders are challenged by the idea of power, this session will highlight the importance of getting comfortable with power, understanding the fundamentals of power dynamics, and developing one’s own path to power.

The CEO Agenda: Taking Charge of Strategy, Growth, and Culture

Getting to senior executive positions requires an understanding of the CEOs’ agenda: how they measure their own success, how they spend their time, how they communicate with different audiences, and their temperament. This session will provide insights from successful CEOs of medium-size and large companies.

Effective Communication Skills

As a leader, you spend the majority of your time communicating with others. You probably don’t spend much time thinking about the way you do this, nor are you likely to get honest feedback about the way you communicate. Yet the quality of your communication skills largely determines your effectiveness. This session will provide guidelines for improving your communication style. In particular, we will focus on your persuasive skills — how to convince others to accept your ideas or support your position, even if they are skeptical at first.
