Nearly half of affluent, wealthy Chinese individuals intend to take part in training programs over the next three years, according to an article in Forbes magazine. Helen Attridge (CEO and training director of the Academy of Coaching and NLP) understands that now is the time and place to fulfill this new-found desire for individuals to create change in themselves and others.

“My teaching job in China opened my eyes,” says Helen Attridge. “I saw that the Chinese are hungry, not just for corporate growth, but also for personal development.” The experienced master coach’s vision was formed in China after working with executives the world over as a Results Coach for the Anthony Robbins Company.

Having spent over five years teaching in China, Helen believes China will surprise the world in their ascent to embrace change. “Students are seeking coach training programs for the certification, but wind up walking away with much more than that from ACN,” says Helen. “The students have a deep desire for growth, personally and professionally. I am moved by their strong desire to heal themselves, their families, their work environments, their community and their country.”

Helen feels there is a common thread among her students; they seek to achieve a balance that incorporates traditional values with modern living in a global world.
