Dr. Gallo's book is a classic work that really "digs into the earth." As a Chinese and a 25-year business leader, I am deeply touched by his insightful and interesting observations about the behaviors of Chinese leaders. This book allowed me to see a different view of Chinese leadership that comes from a Westerner's cultural perspective. The book provides important guidance for understanding the art of leadership for companies operating in the China market, both multinational and domestic."

China does not lack leadership ideology and philosophy, but lacks the tools to implement strategy. In contrast, the West has abundant leadership theories and practices, but lacks an understanding of and insight into Chinese culture. No matter whether you are in China or other countries, if you want to be an effective leader, you need to have the right local knowledge and apply that to best practices. The author analyzes Chinese culture and its business environment with a modest and open mind. In his many years of leading, teaching, and consulting, he demonstrates how to combine the philosophies of the East with the business practices of the West. I believe this book will inspire Chinese and Western leaders alike.-- Chris Xu, Director of Human Resources and Leadership Development, TCL Corporation
An exciting and informative book about what it takes to be an effective leader in China. This should be read not only by "westerners" but also Chinese executives and managers. Without patronizing either Chinese wisdom or Western (American) practices, Gallo does a great job of helping the reader to become culturally sensitive, even empathic on an interpersonal level. He provides invaluable practical experiences with clear applications about pitfalls to navigate and bridges to build in order to work effectively with Chinese organizations and their workforces. I loved his personal examples and willingness to share lessons learned the hard way!
