To be a leader who truly engages the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people, you have to authentically connect with them on a human level. You’ve heard the phrase, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
In today’s age of connection, in order for people to trust you, be open to your influence, and be fully engaged in the team’s mission, you must earn their trust by consistently proving that you respect them and care about their whole being, including their dignity, pride, and reputation.
I’ve been reading a fascinating book that applies universal concepts learned from centuries-old wisdom from Asian cultures to the new environment we face today in our global, ever-changing world. Today I’m excited to introduce you to the author of that book, Maya Hu-Chan, who grew up in Taiwan and has spent the past couple decades living in the US and providing executive coaching for leaders all over the world.
Maya Hu-Chan’s newest book is SAVING FACE: How to Preserve Dignity and Build Trust. Maya is the founder and president of Global Leadership Associates, is a globally recognized management consultant, executive coach, author, and speaker. She has trained and coached thousands of leaders from Fortune 500 corporations, nonprofits, and public sectors in North America, Asia, Europe, Australia, and Latin America. Previously, she was an anchor for the China Broadcasting Corporation in Taiwan and the CEO of a nonprofit organization in California. Her previous book was Global Leadership: The Next Generation.
