China Mentor​​

The most successful transition program includes the assignment of an individual, not associated with the employer, who guides the transition for the first three to six months in China. An outside consultant or coach through the entire transition program is able to maintain objectivity and confidentiality. The China mentor should support China-related skills development and begin working with the new expat immediately upon arrival in country. 

The mentor must be objective and discreet and have a strong business focus. This person should also have work experience in China and understand the differences between Chinese and home office work styles. The mentor should be able to meet with the executive in person at the beginning of the support period. Regular follow-up meetings should take place in person, though these may be conducted virtually.
