Social Network Strategies

I'm preparing for my keynote talk at the Women's Leadership Forum and find myself caught up in the Tiger Mom controversy. Wow, that really struck a chord internationally.

All mothers (and fathers) do the very best they can to be the very best parent for their children - I am convinced that this is one of those "nature-given" qualities.

So the Tiger Mom issue resonates in many ways - what is "best approach" to education at a time of great change? How can we prepare our children for the future?

This blog is about Customer Connections - so as retailers and enterprises look for social network strategies that work, there are quite a few lessons in the global reach of Amy Chua's new book and the controversial Wall Street Journal Article that kicked off this global discussion.

See below for the videos - one, an interview with Amy Chua in the US and the other, an animated description created in Chinese.
