Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an Â answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes â both their own and those of the people they coach âprevent individuals from reaching their potential.Â

From Trumpâs aggressive rhetoric against China, to the escalating trade war with tit for tat responses, and Chinaâs 2025 initiative that threatens the US global leadership in advanced technologies, tensions between the US and China (the two dominant forces of todayâs world) have never been higher.
This book provides a timely analysis of the US-China relationship. Each model is deeply rooted in their respective histories and cultures, with both models highly successful in achieving their main goals and highly resilient over time. It explores the core misconceptions on governance, economic, social and military issues, and the root causes of these misconceptions. If China and US could close the gap by each understanding those differences and their implications, the author argues, they could work together to overcome global issues to the benefit of all.
