CONNECT – September 2018

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School’s magazine CONNECT provides a platform to inform readers of selected business topics through articles written by staff and guest writers.

In this issue, we look at how the quality of basic education and cultural values matter for a country’s innovation outcomes, especially as more countries regard innovation as one of the key drivers of productivity and economic growth. This research confirms that enhancing innovation output needs to be at the forefront of policy making.

We discuss market place practices, how being a leader has many benefits but the role also comes with tremendous pressure. Every leadership role is a major investment for most organisations, so it’s important that leaders do not burn out but find a balance despite their high demand roles. Another skill set that professionals need in order to remain competitive for the ever-changing career market is networking. Top business leaders need to have the ability to connect individuals and firms which can complement each other’s needs.

On a more light-hearted note, we take a reflective look at our personal qualities, and how similarities of our names, hometowns or other personal traits that alter our reaction to service failures.
