Competence Centre - Chinese Business
It’s no secret that China can be both a challenging and a rewarding place to do business but it’s also different from just about any other market. New products, opportunities, challenges, and regulations occur at a much faster rate than in many developed markets, and ways of communicating can be wholly different.
To succeed in China, among other things, leaders need to:
- Build trust and find out what’s happening within a high-context communication culture
- Be agile enough to be decisive and respond quickly,
- Build trust with headquarters to communicate changes and their reasons succinctly
- Develop the next generation of leaders and hire “best fit” new managers for future growth
Recognizing this we have expanded our Chinese Competence Centre. Along with our offices in Shanghai, we have now established a China desk in our German offices in Bad Homburg. Both offices are run by people who have many years of both China and Germany experience, and speak both languages.
We can help you work on hiring and retention strategies, hire senior executives who can function well in both environments, and coach and train new and old leaders to be even more successful in China and beyond. In addition, as Chinese company’s increasing buy into the German market, our goal is to be able to do the same in reverse for them.
