Leadership Toolkit for Asians: The Definitive Resource Guide for Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling

Jane Hyun

Breakthrough strategies from the author of Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling to help Asian Americans build their leadership and influence skills by embracing their cultural strengths and mapping an achievable career path.

How can Asian Americans lead and influence in a way that feels culturally authentic?

19 years after her groundbreaking book, global leadership strategist Jane Hyun unveils Leadership Toolkit for Asians - a guide for Asian Americans to build their capacity to lead and influence with a blueprint that is achievable and culturally relevant.

Asian Americans are the least likely demographic to be promoted or to have a mentor or sponsor- they make up 13% of the professional workforce, but less than 3% of executive positions. This dynamic hurts everyone, and the solution calls us to embrace our unique perspectives while organizations create a more fertile environment for growing Asian talent.

This toolkit--based on Hyun's work with thousands of leaders--is filled with self-assessments, checklists, quizzes, and stories of Asian American leaders to help you put ideas into action. It will show you how to leverage your life experiences to craft a bespoke leadership journey.

  • Assess: Identify your goals, cultural values and assets
  • Equip: Navigate effectively with people who are different from you, push back against stereotypes, strengthen your networks, apply a developmental model to help you get there
  • Transform: Create your own model and engage advocates as you put it into practice
