Chinese corporations—as well as multinationals operating in China—increasingly recognize that their top management needs Western-style support in honing their leadership skills, provided such guidance is leavened with the unique nuances of Chinese culture. The result is “an entirely new practice of executive coaching,” according to Marjorie Woo, one of the lead editors who collected an incisive account of their experiences in “Leadership Coaching in China.” Published by Fielding University Press, the book provides fascinating observations by leading China-based coaches, academics and business leaders on the challenges of applying Western-style leadership development methods at major Chinese corporations, including state-owned enterprises as well as private start-ups. Among others, the book reveals successful strategies for how to initiate coaching engagements, how to best involve key stakeholders, and how to foster a modern leadership style in the Chinese C-suite that can motivate individuals and teams at all levels of the organization. Edited by James Warner, Tom Payne and Jeff Hasenfratz in addition to Woo, with contributions from 30 Chinese and Western coaching professionals, the book is the first to fully explore the experience of Western coaches operating at the highest levels of Chinese industry.
