As part of the research cooperation within the ECNU-S&P Research Center, we have designed a unique development program for managers in China, executives and employees in charge of personnel that interlinks the newest insights from neuroscience, psychology and pedagogy in a targeted manner and is specifically aligned with the socio-economic structures of the Chinese working and education system.
The development program relies on the neuroscientific understanding of human learning and actions represented by the “ZRM®“ Zurich Resource Model. The effective ZRM® approach is complemented by action-oriented learning models from business education as well as elements of Sùzhì (素質 / 素质) and confucianism which are part of the traditional Chinese pedagogy.
In concrete terms, the development program aims at the deficits of young professionals in China which have been reported back by Western companies in the “Smart Education China” study:
It is not primarily technical skills that Chinese graduates lack. They rather lack methodical and social competences that enable them to efficiently apply theoretical knowledge in the organization. These development potentials can be addressed in an efficient way by interlocking neuro-didactics, models of action-oriented learning from business education and Sùzhì:
Certified ZRM® coaches enable managers and employees in charge of personnel to lead young professionals and their employees in general through a diversified set of systemic analyses, coaching and interactive self-help techniques in developing self-management competences and strengthening their initiative and autonomy potential constantly.
The development program integrates elements of the German Dual System and trains your managers through action-oriented workshops to eliminate the isolation between the theoretical knowledge transfer and the necessary professional activities to process concrete organizational tasks on the job.
In this way, the talent management can be combined cost-effectively to valuable tasks of the organization. The transformation of theoretical knowledge into operational practice is supported as well as the holistic consideration of work processes.
We enable your managers to develop the potential of the respective employees in a targeted manner and thereby to contribute to the sustainable development of the available human resources and organizational units.
Sùzhì describes a holistic education approach which is derived from Confucian education. It differs considerably from ìngshì jiàoyù (應試教育 / 应试教育), an education and training approach which primarily aims at examinations. Elements from this education concept are utilized in the development program in order to open up managers towards interactive workshop methods and to train social competences for professional leadership. In this way, participants develop their knowledge, willingness and abilities based on the personal perception of the world through practical actions – with head, heart and hand. In this way the program supports your managers and the respective employees to strengthen their professional working relationships
Due to many years of experience, our coaches on site are familiar with the cultural similarities and differences between the Western organizational culture and Chinese work ethics and take these into account when addressing the diagnosed strengths and weaknesses. Thereby, our coaches help both young professionals and internal trainers unfold their potentials and considerably contribute to measurable performance improvements.
