What Leading Change Means In Our World Today

by Samuel Kim

Samuel Kim, President and Co-founder of the Center for Asia Leadership shared his thoughts on what it takes to be the new 21st century leaders in an Op-Ed entitled “What Leading Change Means in Our World Today,” published in The Edge, Malaysia’s best-selling and award-winning business weekly, on October 24, 2016.
