Our Philosophy

The Center for Asia Leadership is committed to accelerating the development of leaders who are primed to ignite long-lasting change.

Participants of our initiatives will get a balanced and dynamic leadership skill set that they can immediately apply to their career, workplace and community. They will also learn to tackle the toughest questions, solve complex problems and lead across boundaries.

Global Best Practices on Leadership and Education

We design our initiatives to help leaders create impact for themselves, their organizations, and communities. Our leadership programs are developed as transformational experiences rooted in the very best teaching and learning practices within the context of the 21st century. They are powered by contents developed, and currently taught at world-renowned institutions such as Harvard and Stanford University, and are led by faculty and teaching fellows from these institutions who are committed to the practice of teaching as a means of promoting positive change.

Glocalized Contents for Asia

We work closely with members in our network, the Harvard community, as well as those across Asia, to conduct research and develop learning contents that works for the region. Our publications, which cover world- leading best practices and instructive tools, serve a dual function: firstly, as the channel to better our understanding of the challenges facing Asia, and secondly, to empower leaders to form insightful next-steps, and hone their leadership expertise in cross-cultural settings.

The Real Harvard-Style Experience

Our leadership philosophy is based on three fundamental ways in which we learn : knowledge enhancement, skill building, and mindset development.
