CEIBS Knowledge

In the workplace, a leader who appears authentic is more likely to gain the trust of subordinates, who do not have to rack their brains over his/her intentions. As a result, the two sides can communicate more candidly in a friendly atmosphere. But, what types of leaders are perceived by employees as authentic? And, in what ways do employees judge leaders’ authenticity?
Owing to a lack of actual meaningful collaboration, startup initiatives are often met with skepticism and dismissed as mere PR exercises or “innovation theatre”.

40 years have passed since the beginning of China’s reform and opening-up. In that time, Chinese entrepreneurs have built a plethora of world-renowned companies, creating a Chinese miracle in the history of global business. With the wave of globalisation sweeping across the world over the past decade, technological progress and industrial upgrading have gathered momentum. In response to the Belt and Road Initiative, Chinese companies have made a strong showing in the global competitive arena. Meanwhile, as China’s economy slows down, those companies are being forced to transform, upgrade, and improve their global competitiveness in an overwhelming and dynamic environment.
