Levitan, PhD, Senior Partner, RHR International LLP

“Leadership Coaching in China’ is the comprehensive, experienced-based guide enabling Chinese and foreign leaders and coaches to fully leverage the benefits of coaching across organizations. Besides learning how to structure coaching practices in a culturally-effective way, readers will gain empowering insights about how to be a better leader and a better coach, and therefore co-create greater value with others.” – Jean-Francois Cousin, MCC, 2019 Chairman of the ICF Global Board

“This is an insightful book which highlights the need for formal leadership coaching in an interconnected world in which China is playing an increasingly important role. Understanding how Chinese cultural nuances can support the development of China-responsible leaders, vs. simply following tried and tested western approaches, provides valuable perspective and leverage.” – Jafar Amin, President, Wells Fargo Asia Pacific
