Executive Coaching Service


10 Years Coaching Experience in Shanghai

What is the single most effective method to develop soft-skills and leadership?

Yes, that's right, coaching!

What is Executive Coaching by HRO?

Our coaches conduct one-on-one sessions with managers to achieve a positive influence on their awareness, goals and priorities, motivation, behavior and performance.

Major aims of coaching are to support high potentials in their professional development, to help executives in dealing with extraordinary challenges and to prevent high-performers from exhaustion.

When Executive Coaching should be applied?

Following the given aims, coaching proved to be highly efficient:

- in supporting foreign executives to settle appropriately within the very demanding environment of China, especially Shanghai;

- in backing up key performers or executives, who have to face extraordinary individual challenges for which appropriate corporate support may be lacking (accidents, fierce internal competition, extreme team-constellations, tough negotiations etc.).

- in helping managers who feel uncertain about their current position as well as their future perspectives to regain clarity of view and trust in their very own skills and capabilities.

Another typical application of coaching in Shanghai is supporting Chinese leaders to identify and work out development bottlenecks. For example, how to become a globally accepted leader who can manage international teams, or how to become more influential, or more balanced.

Who can be coached?

Typically coaching is provided for middle managers and above, key performers, and experts. We can provide support in Mandarin, Shanghainese, English and German.

How does it work?

Coaching typically is a structured, mid to long-term process, and HRO also provides quick crisis-interventions.

Our coaches use diversified coaching methods (discussions, questionnaires, visual aids, role play, experimental learning, and homework). Even more importantly, they provide careful observation and objective feedback based on knowledge and experience.

Both together, coaches and the methods applied help the trainee to realize development: raise self-awareness, achieve clarity, focus, and to maintain motivation.
