It’s lonely at the top anywhere, but this is especially true if your home office is overseas. It is so much work not to be misunderstood by the home office. It often appears that you cannot do a good job for both the China situation and the expectations of the home office.
Spending 40% of your time managing the feelings and problems of attitudes in the home office may be necessary.
Definitely, you must not just make work harder for the people overseas. Your job is too simplify and make circumstances easier for them to understand. However, it will not be easy. Protect the home office from China. Do not make them jump in. China is your problem. Face it. It is lonely at the top.
Work at it.
And your work will be valued more overseas.
