Organizations’ best intentions for developing top leaders may actually be hindering the leadership development process.


Asia’s trajectory of explosive growth offers exciting opportunities to businesses. The Asian economy is expected to remain a critical driver for global GDP growth, yet identifying and grooming the leaders for an organization remains a challenge for many, especially in these times of global complexity and change. How do you lead now and in the future? What do you need to do to navigate volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity facing you, your team, and your organization?

Without question, the most critical challenge for many organizations is having the right talent who can overcome challenges and seize opportunities in Asia. Organizations may be so caught up with looking for individuals that are equipped with the skills, knowledge, abilities, and experiences to operate in a fast-evolving Asian market that they often forget talent that needs to be groomed for top leadership roles. In addition, the capability to develop the next generation of senior leaders is often an overlooked competency for sitting senior executives.

A 2012 CCL study revealed that accelerating leadership development for senior leadership roles in Asia requires balancing and reconciling seemingly paradoxical practices. For continued success, businesses in APAC must understand the Five Paradoxes of Leadership Development in Asia, and also have the foresight to determine if their best intentions for developing top leaders may actually be hindering the leadership development process.


CCL’s considerable leadership research provides essential knowledge and understanding of the region. More importantly, it ensures that our programs will expand an organization’s capacity for strategic leadership, talent development, and innovation.


We have developed a wealth of research and programs that address the needs of individual leaders, teams of top performers, and organizations.  Leadership development is the keystone to your success in Asia’s hyper-complex and ever-evolving economy. Accelerate your organizational success by accelerating your leadership development.


  • From the program, I have learned much about myself and how to relate and work together with others. The MBTI and the FIRO-B tools have helped me to have a better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses; and the '360 By Design' multi-rater feedback has given me insight into my relationship with others. All in all, what I've learned from this program prepared me for better working relationship with others and for achieving goals and success by leveraging my strengths
