About this book

Introduction

The book captures the essence of leadership, its characteristics and ways in Asia through the cultural and philosophical visor. With Asian sayings, proverbs and quotes, the book discusses leadership issues and ways in the major Asian countries including China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. The leadership styles and ways of various great Asian national leaders and corporate leaders in these Asian countries are also examined. Perhaps of much interest to scholars and students of leadership, certain unique Asian features such as Buddhism, Confucianism, Ta Mo, Chinese Animal zodiac signs, Hindu Gods, the Samurai, the Spirit of Bushido and Zen are examined in the light of leadership mastery and excellence. The book is also intended to be a practical book that gives numerous examples of a potpourri of leadership skills and ways a person needs to be a leader. It is very action-orientated, the reader is urged to think about it, reflect and act.
