Characteristics of Admired Leaders: Comparing China to the West

Michael Xu
Certified Master
What unique perspectives do each of your leaders bring to their leadership journey? Does geography matter? Do they understand what it takes to be the kind of leader that others would be willing to follow? Based on research Michael Xu has conducted over the past nine years with 5,000 Asia-based business and government executives, results suggest that there are significant differences in the essential Characteristics of Admired Leaders that those working in China look for, versus their counterparts in the West. In this session we will explore these differences and what they might be telling us about leaders in different parts of the world.

Michael Xu, PhD, is founder and CEO of Beijing Excelland Leadership Center and a Certified Master of The Leadership Challenge®. An executive coach and entrepreneur, he is an instructor of leadership development in the MBA program at Tsinghua University and has translated more than 20 leadership books into Chinese, including both the 5th and 6th editions of The Leadership Challenge.

"I took away so much inspiration and fresh approaches to this amazing work from the Summit. Most importantly, as a newly-minted Certified Master the connections made with others are invaluable—particularly considering my location Down Under."
- Grant Dale, Certified Master and Acting Director, WorkSmart Australia
"What an amazing global family! It is rare to meet so many people with so much wisdom that they freely share. Even as a relative newcomer I felt welcomed with open arms."
