There is no doubt the next decade of economic growth will focus heavily on Asia. As global corporations spread across Asia to establish positions and market share, they frequently ignore organizational and human capital challenges. Their system for leadership selection has allowed for a very small percentage of women in decision-making roles, illustrating how their processes are out of date, carry a Western lens, and are ill-suited for Asian markets.
How Asian Women Lead provides a vastly different picture than Western-focused leadership literature, highlighting obstacles Asian women face reaching the top, and looking beneath the corporate surface to show cultural and family perspectives. Through her research and the stories of four uniquely different women leaders from varying Asian economies and industries, Horan offers a new perspective to help business leaders and human capital professionals understand leadership diversity, build inclusive and engaged organizations, and sustain success.
