"Breakthrough strategies to help Asian Americans in the workplace build their personal leadership acumen and map a career advancement path that is achievable, authentic, and culturally relevant. 17 years after Jane Hyun wrote her groundbreaking book, Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling, Asians remain grossly underrepresented in the upper ranks of American organizations. Asians are 12% of the workforce, but just 1.5% of Fortune 500 corporate officers. Hyun says for Asians to lead authentically, they need to move away from "code switching" and "getting along by going along." This workbook is built around her three-part framework for developing an intentional, courageous, culturally grounded approach to working and leading: ASSESS: Identify your personal and professional values, assets, and style. EQUIP: Learn to navigate the organizational environment-push back against stereotypes, find mentors and advisors, develop your professional networks, and more. TRANSFORM: Pull it all together to create your own leadership blueprint. The Toolkit is full of activities to help readers put ideas into action. It also includes inspiring real-life lessons from Asian executives and leaders. The Asian Leadership Toolkit acknowledges the wide range of cultures, identities, and experiences that exist within Asian America, and sees the particulars of identity not as impediments but as integral to crafting a bespoke leadership journey"--


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
