"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential .... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."
Confucius (551 – 479 BC)



Inspirational Leadership – the formula for Success and Happiness

How to define Inspirational Leadership?

Inspiration is always a combination of a set of talents and innate abilities. They were already there when you were born and have served as you since then. In the course of your life you have developed skills and acquired knowledge. In whatever it is you do you express them with enthusiasm – that is your inspiration.


  • Nourishes your vision
  • Is the foundation for your goals
  • Gives you clarity
  • Helps you making decisions
  • Helps you achieve your goals with less effort.

AND all that has such an inspiring effect on the people around you that they are highly motivated to support you in achieving your goals.

China Consulting and Communication with Chinese Business Partners

China continues its path to becoming a "Global Player" and is an important trading partner for medium sized companies. The way Chinese business partners act is often very different, unfamiliar and hard to understand for Europeans. This in turn may lead to unexpected results on both sides, which are not always intended or even desired. Knowledge and understanding of your Chinese business partners values and business habits reduces the likelihood of getting undesired results and misunderstandings.

Topics are

  • Opportunities and challenges when doing business in China
  • Guiding principles of communicating with Chinese business partners
  • The Chinese dimension of loyalty and its effects on agreements
  • The Chinese dimension of time and flexibility
  • The Chinese way of doing business - a venture into unknown territory
  • How to lead Chinese-European teams successfully
  • How to convert differences into strengths
