Tom Vovers, General Director of HR2B a leading human resources professional services firm presented to a group of Canadian business leaders on how to approach leadership in Viet Nam. Since 2003, HR2B has placed thousands of professionals and managers into companies in Viet Nam and Tom has seen personally leaderships styles that both succeed and fail.

"Unlike Canadians, Vietnamese culture is highly group oriented and you can use this to ensure your leadership is effective” Tom said. He went on to explain that neither being too ‘nice’ or too ‘nasty’ was going to be effective. "There seems to be a goldilocks zone you need to find with your team balancing tough love”.
