Asian companies are not normally known for innovative styles of leadership. Dr. Huy will present an interesting case in leadership at Longfor, a China property developer and a top Forbes Global 2000 company that grew from a start-up into a national billion dollar enterprise. Longfor is run on distinctive management practices which differ from that of traditional Chinese organizations. We will debate whether these practices are applicable to other Asian companies that seek to become more innovative.
