EIS provides insight into key characteristics, specific behaviors, competencies, and experiences required to reach the executive level. Participants typically have 8-12 years of experience and hold manager, director, or vice president positions.
WHY A PROGRAM FOR ASIAN MANAGERS?
Ascend’s findings show that relatively few Pan-Asians have achieved executive leadership roles, even in regions with a significant Pan-Asian presence such as San Francisco and New York. EIS examines the “Myths of Asian Leadership” preventing Pan-Asians from reaching top executive positions.
This program provides participants with a leadership framework that empowers them to adapt their attitudes for leadership and business value.
