The APAC Leadership Institute (APLI) is an innovative leadership development outfit that addresses talent and leadership gaps in the fast-growing and highly competitive Asia Pacific markets.   The outfit provides a full suite of programs, which includes customized learning modules, mentorships, executive coaching, talent council and job rotations. One of the signature nine-month leadership programs was designed and implemented with Korn/Ferry's Leadership and Talent Consulting organization.

"Competitive companies need agile leaders who can think outside the box and quickly adapt to change," said Pushp Deep Gupta, Managing Principal for Korn/Ferry's Leadership and Talent Consulting group in Asia.   "Under the leadership of Figin Seng, Estee Lauder Companies has developed a model program to foster innovative thinking and develop its next generation of leaders."
