Enoch Li


Enoch is an expert on leadership, resilience, and well-being in the workplace. At INSEAD, she programme directs, teaches, and consults in Executive Education Programmes, such as the INSEAD Coaching Certificate, Management Acceleration Programme, and various Company Specific Programmes. She is also the Co-Director of the INSEAD MBA’s Personal Leadership Development Programme. Her work aims to help leaders navigate conflicting demands in ambiguous contexts, and to uncover the group influences that affect the quality of their decisions, relationships, and accomplishments. Her teaching highlights on how resilient leadership sustains group performance and psychological safety, and takes into account the unconscious factors that sustain or hinder both outcomes. 

Enoch advises Boards and senior executives on organizational transitions and social impact strategies. She is the Founder of Bearapy, an award-winning social impact consulting & training company in China that has pioneered workplace mental health in Asia-Pacific, imprinting employee wellbeing in company culture against taboos and stigma. She has received multiple recognitions for her contributions in this field, including the United Nations China Social Impact Awards and Beijing government’s OTEC Community Hero. She now takes her experience with the “S” in ESGs in her work as a Non-Executive Director on Boards and global and regional Steering Committees to advocate country and organisational-level policy changes in workplace mental health. 

Prior, Enoch had leadership & managerial roles at HSBC in London, Paris, Tokyo, and Beijing. She holds an Executive Masters in Change (Distinction) from INSEAD, a Masters in Laws (Hons) from University of London, and is certified in Play Therapy by the Canadian Association of Play Therapy. She is also a member of the INSEAD Directors Network and a graduate of the Financial Times Non-Executive Directors Programme.

In her spare time, she studies Chinese calligraphy and philosophy, plays basketball, tackles jigsaw puzzles, and draws cartoon characters with her husband under the direction of their two children.
