How to effectively manage a Chinese team?


For a European company wishing to penetrate the Asian market or collaborate with partners in China, it is advisable to put aside its certainties in the commercial, relational and behavioral approach vis-à-vis its Chinese interlocutors.


To manage a Chinese team and ensure a serene and effective collaboration, it is essential to take into consideration the cultural differences which require a specific adaptation compared to the French or European models.

To establish a relationship of trust with your teams in China, you should focus on four major cultural principles:

1.   In China, there is a principle called “Guanxi” which requires all effective managers to place human relations at the heart of their action. The Chinese are very sensitive to the quality of relations and good understanding at work.

2.   Valuing work and the individual: the Chinese have a real culture of success and are able to redouble their efforts if they are rewarded by their manager.

3.   Optimism! Indeed, addressing your collaborators, suppliers or Chinese partners in a negative way will be counter-productive, a source of litigation and you will certainly not achieve your goals. Being positive about human skills and the future of the company enjoins the Chinese to get more involved in their tasks.

4.   In China, a good manager is a leader who knows how to show leadership and who leads his company as a good father. This feeling of paternalism is important for the Chinese who see themselves reassured and reinforced in their work by a leader that they will be able to take as a model.
