Perspective from the Spring 2023 Cohort

200x200fPNG Pete Dulin.png
As a cohort of Asian American professionals, I felt kinship and understanding of others’ experiences even though our respective lives, upbringing, and influences were different. As a result, I gained clarity and perspective on how I can lead myself and support others with similar or different leadership voices. This knowledge helps me to be versatile and more capable of adapting to situations and personalities in a professional, social, and even personal setting.

The Process

Become the Leader Others Want to Follow

Step 1: INFORMING

You will have access to our partner's video library on GiANT TV. In your own time, you will navigate a short, self-guided course of study. This will include short videos and simple worksheets you can watch as many times as you want, when you want. This will help you have some background prior to our discussion in Step 2.  In addition to the videos specific to this cohort, you will have access to hundreds of leadership videos to provide additional support during this journey. 

Step 2: TRAINING

After watching the videos you will join a Live Module Session to review the material taught. Through this interactive webinar you are encouraged to ask the instructor questions and discuss the application of the material to your own life. We will work through participant leadership challenges applying the module lessons into transformative results. The goal is to successfully apply the information.

Why an Asian Cohort?

As Asian professionals working in a Western organizational context, we often experience the "bamboo ceiling". This ceiling represents the barriers that we face in advancing to senior leadership positions in Western contexts. 

Some factors that contribute to the bamboo ceiling include cultural stereotypes and biases, lack of representation in leadership positions, language and communication barriers, and a perception of Asians as being better suited for technical or support roles rather than leadership roles.

We also may also face pressure to conform to traditional Eastern cultural expectations which can be seen as conflicting with leadership qualities such as assertiveness and risk-taking, valued in the West.

The bamboo ceiling has implications not only for us as Asian professionals, but also for the organizations we work for as they may miss out on diverse perspectives and ideas that could contribute to organizational success.

Going on this journey together to become Liberating Leaders we can process how our culture influences how we show up as a leader
