Coaching as a means of training leaders has been around in China for a while, but in the last five years we have really seen it take off. Most people in leadership roles have now heard about coaching and many have had the chance to experience it.
So what are the latest trends in leadership coaching in China? Which type of companies are coaching their leaders? Where do the coaches come from? And what is it that is making the difference for leaders who receive coaching? 
The British Chamber's HR & Training Forum is pleased to host an expert panel of top leadership coaches to speak on this topic. 
  • Rainer B. Schmitz, who has over 15 years of leadership, HR, consulting and coaching experience in China, and published the third China-wide 'Comprehensive Coaching Study' in 2015 and a white paper on 'Leadership Coaching Culture' in 2014, will present the main points from his research. 
  • Helen Tian, one of the first leadership coaches in China, with 20 years of experience in leadership development, will relate her findings on how the internal growth of executives is affecting their external work and life, as well as her views on the idea of 'self-esteem plus'. 
  • And Dalida Turkovic, who has been coaching in China for over 20 years, runs the Mindfulness Centre in Beijing and is the author of the recently published 'Mindfulness for Beginners', will explain how mindfulness is making waves worldwide as well as in China in leadership development.
The panel presentations will be followed by Q&A and discussion, so please come along with questions and input on the topic as well.
