The East-West Center is pleased to announce an opportunity for advanced professionals to reflection upon personal and organizational achievement while developing plans for the future. Each year, 8 - 12 participants from diverse backgrounds and sectors will be selected for this unique opportunity.
The Advanced Leadership Program takes place at the East-West Center's campus in Honolulu, Hawai'i, and runs from October 18 - November 29, 2017 (6 weeks). Participants engage in a self-designed program with substantial time given to independent work, research and exploration. Participants receive their own workspace in an East-West Center office and have the option of attending East-West Center seminars, activities with the Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP) and the East-West Center's fall Wednesday Evening Seminar series.
Components of the Advanced Leadership Program
- Flexible schedule for professionals who cannot leave their positions for longer than a short sabbatical
- No limitations on part-time consulting, research or partnerships or obligations outside of the East-West Center
- Self-designed space for individual career development and research, in addition to exploration of subject areas which fit individualized academic curiosity
- Opportunities for professional networking with research fellows and visiting scholars at the East-West Center and other local think tanks
- Joint sessions with the APLP and other East-West Center program participants
The Advanced Leadership Program (ALP) is intended for individuals with at least 12 - 15 years of professional experience, and who would like to reflect upon, refocus and re-energize their professional and/or organizational development. Examples of ideal participants may include: Managing directors who need to take time away from their day to day schedules for strategic planning and visioning; advanced professionals who are considering a career shift and who would benefit from the opportunity to explore new options within a structured framework; or leaders with regional responsibilities who might wish to deepen and/or widen their understanding of leadership and current trends in the Asia Pacific region.
