Jeanny Chai is the founder of and author of the upcoming book Out of the Bamboo Jungle. She helps professionals acknowledge the cultural experiences unique to the Asian-American community and how those experiences uniquely influence their career, leadership and how they show up as professionals in the marketplace.

She holds a BS in Biology from Stanford University and after “shaming” her family by not attending med school, she spent over a decade raising a family. She home-schooled her oldest child, who now attends UC Berkeley. In her work life, she became known as a successful business development professional coveted by CEOs for her ability to launch brand new sales efforts at early stage tech start-ups. Her latest role put her in front of Silicon Valley’s most advanced real time analytics room, as lecturer and host for global execs at top tech companies such as AT&T, eBay, and Amazon.

In our conversation with Jeanny, she describes how she has reframed the cultural norms of her past and leveraged them to create a more meaningful and authentic journey on the road to success. She is also a breast cancer survivor, and has overcome great struggles in her health and family. She shares her experience with cancer and how it forced her to re-evaluate her life and priorities. Using what she’s learned, she now equips other women to achieve more and enjoy more in their work and life.

Listen in as we explore the achievement trap, the shame-based culture in most Asian-American families and how you can establish a renewed confidence and power as a leader by overcoming people approval addiction and focusing on your creative genius zone.

Key Takeaways

  1. Leverage your cultural norms. Keep what works and change what doesn’t.  
  2. Change the way you view yourself. Do things you would do if you weren’t afraid.
  3. We need more than information, we need transformation. Transformation happens when you practice what you know is true.
  4. When you compete there’s always this feeling of I’m not good enough. When you know your natural gift, you don’t have to worry about competing with others.
  5. I have to keep achieving OR I’m never going to make it – both are equally negative.
  6. Stop living someone else’s dream for your life. Find your flow.
  7. Leadership starts with mindset, your personal life, and gaining self-respect.
