On Friday, March 22, Empower Leaders Consulting (ELC), one of Hogan’s China distributors, hosted a half-day Hogan event in Shanghai for its clients and their Hogan certified network. Nancy Zhang, founder and CEO of ELC, invited Hogan representative Krista Pederson to announce ELC’s official launch of the updated Hogan Assessment Certification Workshop and Advanced Certification Workshops in China.
ELC also invited two important clients, Dowell Real Estate Group and Faurecia Services Group, to share case studies on their Hogan use. Huang Xue, Director of HR Talent Development and Head of Culture at Dowell shared how Hogan has transformed Dowell company culture and become a crucial part of the entire employee lifecycle, from external and internal selection to high potential and leadership development. Wei Wei, Director of HR for greater China at Faurecia, explained how they have used Hogan for over a decade and how it has helped them address various talent needs during different cycles in the market.
Finally, ELC invited a panel of Hogan Certified coaches, including Linda Zhang (Columbia University Certified Coach & ICF MCC) and Sun Yongbo (Former Director of L&D for China’s Bank of Communications and Standard Charter Bank), to share their experiences using Hogan to coach executives and C-Suite leaders and answer questions about using Hogan. Linda shared how she uses Hogan as the key data point throughout an entire coaching assignment. Sun shared learnings from his most difficult assignments, including how he once coached a CEO who went from being belligerently resistant to his Hogan results to full heartedly accepting to the point where he encouraged use of Hogan throughout his entire team.
