Jane Hyun, “Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians”
Collins Business | 2006 | ISBN: 0060731222 | 352 pages | PDF | 1,2 MB
A different take on people issues that corporations face is proffered by Hyun, a former human resources executive who knows the subject well. After all, she points out, Asian Americans are growing 41 percent faster than any other demographic group yet hold only 12.5 percent of U.S. management positions. What underlies those startling statistics is one word: culture. Eastern values are almost diametrically opposed to Western. Asians are risk averse, for instance, preferring to keep their heads down rather than speak up or confront workplace issues. That emphasis on collective decision making and conflict avoidance hinders career advancement, at best, and, at worst, can derail future vocational choices. Hyun's help is multiple, from individual profiles and skill-defining exercises to interviewing and mentoring tips, all geared to the special needs of people growing up Asian in a very macho, aggressive culture.
