The Leadership Energy Summit Asia will take you on your journey to self empowerment.

Research, Publicationsand Downloads
Creating unique and highly relevant Asia-focused research is central to Iclif’s core. Its findings power Iclif programmes and advisory services with contextually relevant solutions and distinctive content.
Asian Leadership Index (ALI)
The Asian Leadership Index research explores followers’ expectations of their leaders in 18 Asian countries. Through high-touch interviews, we asked approximately 4,000 employees in companies operating across Asia-Pacific to describe what matters to them in an ideal leader and what is missing from the leaders to whom they currently report.
Staying the course in the face of resistance, unpopularity and loneliness requires tremendous inner strength. This strength is the fuel that keeps real leaders from giving up, and we call it Leadership Energy. We asked 10,000 randomly selected people from 27 countries to answer three questions about leadership and personal success.
Is a leader’s job simply to please employees? Are all employees the same, and should each employee’s opinion count equally? Are current methods of measuring engagement really effective, and is the data even useful? Is there more to leadership than managing employee engagement? To answer these questions, Iclif in its latest study takes a differentiated perspective to the conventional concept of employee engagement.
