Tsun-Yan Hsieh, ’74 BSc(MechEng)

Tsun-Yan Hsieh

Across 48 years of working with 100+ CEOs and +500 senior leaders across 30+ industries and countries, Professor Tsun-Yan Hsieh has always connected with them as human beings first, influencing them with his heart, fueled by an intense desire to help each and every one of them reach their potential and better cope with expectations and pressures. The same character and craft pervade his mentorship of hundreds of younger partners in McKinsey and younger leaders who are lucky enough to be part of his MBA course or scale-up CEO leadership courses. Harnessing human energies is his unifying passion; moving people towards shared outcomes is his special gift. He takes great joy in learning how his mentees have progressed, capturing their thank you/update note in a Mont Blanc book. Because his own influence and leadership skills were hard won, he is devoted to help all comers improve theirs.

He is/has been an Independent Director of Singapore Airlines, Manulife Financial, Dyson, Bharti Airtel and Sony. For social interests, he serves on the board of SingHealth and Singapore Institute of Management. He has taught subjects related to Leadership Influence at the National University of Singapore Business School, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the Nanyang Technology University. He co-authored the New York Times best-selling Heart, Smarts, Guts and Luck, and just published his second book Positive Influence: The First and Last Mile of Leadership (www.positiveinfluence.life).
