The Center for Asia Leadership is uniquely positioned to partner with you to design and deliver results-driven learning solutions that address your organization’s unique objectives. We offer custom in-person and online programs to organizations from business, government, civil society, and academia – providing junior- to senior-level working professionals as well as aspiring youth access to the world’s cutting-edge talent development programs, leadership training, and specialized educational experiences.

These programs are carefully designed in close collaboration with your organization to meet the specific training needs and professional development goals of your employees, clients, or networks.

1) Identify Your Organization’s Needs

We will conduct surveys and focus group discussions with key stakeholders to fully understand:

  • The state of the business, strengths, challenges and opportunities, and the organizational culture
  • Program objectives and desired outcomes
  • Desired areas of focus and priorities, target audience, and timing
  • How to incorporate the program into the organization’s broader leadership development process and goals.

2) Design the Program Experience

We will customize the program to meet your learning needs to:

  • Confirm program architecture (e.g., format, dates, and duration)
  • Refine areas of focus and priorities
  • Finalize cohort size
  • Outline how the program [and its goals] will be described to participants.

3) Collaborative Implementation: Before, During, and After

  • Before the program even begins, we communicate with participants to build excitement, set expectations, and assign any work to be done in advance
  • Next, we deliver the academically rigorous curriculum and support participants throughout the program, both on-campus and online
  • Following each program, we capture participant feedback, conduct a client debriefing, and refine content as needed for future sessions and modules
