Self-cultivation or personal development, its equivalent in modern language, is seen as something of utmost importance for successful leadership in ancient Chinese thought and strategy. My attention is specifically focused on the approach of the Tao Te Ching as I describe it in The Tao of Business (Hong Kong: Earnshaw Books, 2009).
In Chinese culture it is very common for traditional methods of self-cultivation to include various kinds of physical practices such as meditation, martial arts or Ch’i-kung. My way of using Chinese martial arts and Ch’i-kung for coaching helps you to get in better touch with yourself, offers valuable feedback on your behavior patterns and learning strategies and is increasing your physical fitness and stress resilience along the way.
