Today, career planning focuses on the individual as a whole – or it runs the risk of failing in the long run. The next generation of executives does not merely want to function within a given framework. They want to see external success and meaningful action in harmony with family obligations and personal development goals. More than ever, the career path to a high level of responsibility requires reflection. This has been recognized by large companies, which support their top executive trainees with training and coaching in holistic career management. The book was developed out of the context of this practical work. There are countless business books that provide assistance to executives dealing with difficult tasks and conflict situations. Masha Ibeschitz's new book is one of the few that answers this question: What needs to be done when a major career leap is imminent? The book is an invitation to reflect on the past, present and future of your own success. The goal is to make conscious and lasting career decisions.

The book «German companies in China» describes the business experience of a German company in China. The author was the general manager and founded the company and ran it for 20 years. Under his leadership, the Chinese subsidiary developed successfully and grew from small to large, from a sales company to an all-round company with around 300 employees, including almost all functional departments. There are approximately 8,000 German companies in China. Not all are successful for various reasons. The differences in the social system, economic system and market characteristics, culture and customs as well as company management between China and Germany have had a significant impact on the management of German companies in China. Most problems with different processes are due to a simple copy of the German processes in China, regardless of the difference in the living environment. The focus of this book is the adjustment of the management of German companies in China to the Chinese environment. The author personally accompanied the development of a German company in China for 20 years and experienced many good and bad things. In this book, the author wants to objectively analyse the general problems that arise in all processes and to make suggestions for improving the processes from his own experience. With this book, the author would like to offer a reference for German companies in China and open a window for those interested to understand the special features of the Chinese market.
