The Human Dimension has been working with Chinese, American, European, and Canadian companies in Mainland China and Hong Kong since 1997.
In 1997 we entered into a joint venture with Guangdong Nortel to provide five- to seven-day management development programs to the managers of state-owned telephone companies in China. These companies were and are going through tremendous turmoil and change as they become deregulated and must reorganize, compete for revenues, and keep costs down. We designed the programs, trained the trainers, and managed the process. These programs were so successful that the participants brought us into their companies to consult with them further.
Since then, we have done team building, management retreats, training, and extensive teaching of personality type using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, with hundreds of business managers and professionals educated in Mainland China and Hong Kong.
Our research article, "Using and Validating the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® in Mainland China's Businesses," (Journal of Psychological Type, Volume 51, 1999) was named Best Application of Psychological Type in 1999.
Human Dimension training materials, including Myers-Briggs® personality type training materials, are available for purchase in both simplified Chinese characters and traditional Chinese characters, in addition to English. These materials can be used to teach type in conjunction with administering the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® or without. The materials are available on CD or floppy disk in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format so you may print them for handouts or transparencies, and they're available as Microsoft PowerPoint files for electronic presentations on computer systems that can display Chinese fonts. Please contact The Human Dimension for more information or to purchase.
We also do cross-cultural training for expatriates who will be working in China and Hong Kong, and their families.
