Sometimes leadership comes in the form of healthy partnerships of healthy leaders forming strategic alliances. This week’s Grounded Leader of the Week is Doug DeVos, President of Amway. He leads the very successful partnership between Amway, the Chinese government and Harvard’s Public School of Government. Amway thrives in China, with Harvard’s help and its focus on global connectedness.

DeVos also gives credit where it is due. This week at a luncheon meeting in Michigan, when asked the secret to Amway’s success in China,  his response was “Eva Cheng.”  He credits the former secretary with building the company’s sales empire in China and Southeast Asia. (as reported by @shandramartinez)

A healthy leader today understands the need to build mutually rewarding relationships on a global scale. Amway’s DeVos’ drive to succeed, his personal mastery and leadership in a complex business environment, makes him this week’s Grounded Leader.
