Click here for more information and to register

Management costs in China are skyrocketing, especially for those who can “make things happen”, but performance is not keeping up because they lack certain critical leadership traits.

Engagement surveys indicate the national average for the percentage of highly engaged employees is less than 10%. (less than one fourth of that in the USA). That means that over 90% of employees are less than highly engaged!

Delving into the reasons for such a low figure, poor leadership is the prime culprit. This is evidenced by other surveys that show among other things that around 75% of China employees quit because of their boss. This is compounded by the ever-increasing pressures on management of business, competitiveness, delivering on increasingly challenging targets and integrating a younger generation with high expectations about their career etc.

Compton Tothill, from Leadership Management International – a global provider of leadership development programs, will be leading a professional development workshop covering aspects of leadership that are in short supply in China and considered as a leadership approach for the 21st century.

Key topics:

  • How to understand motivation and foster a motivational culture
  • The importance of your business vision, leadership values
  • Develop a motivation plan
  • How to localize your management while increasing performance?
  • Improve retention, performance
  • How can foreigners make their best contribution as managers and improve communication to justify their premium?

There will be practical exercises, break-out group discussions, and tools that you can take back and use in your workplace.
