Shattering the Bamboo Ceiling

You have a strong worth ethic, are well educated, hard working and ambitious.  You have a good job, but somehow those promotions are not coming your way.  As you are passed over for promotion you are beginning to think the corner office might be out of your reach.  Perhaps you’ve hit the Bamboo Ceiling!

This seminar identifies those self limiting cultural influences in the Asian “Model Minority” and provides participants with a corporate tool kit to develop their career, avoid misunderstandings and manage cultural differences in order to break through the “Bamboo Ceiling” without undergoing a cultural makeover or compromising cultural values. 

Rationale:
Asians have the largest university graduation population, yet statistics show that only a small percentage make it up the corporate ladder to top positions, in spite of their education and work ethic. 

Who should take this seminar?

  • University students and working professionals of Asian background who wish to advance their career and successfully negotiate upward mobility and reach their full potential. 
  • Non Asian managers requiring assistance in understanding and communicating with their Asian colleagues. 

Topics Covered:
Reality check assessment, Confucianism vs. Corporation-cultural clashes in the workplace, blueprint for success, your corporate tool kit, understanding the business priority, establishing professional presence, communication strategies, internal and external networking, conversation skills, key mobility strategies.
