International Leaders Program
A program to build intercultural business skills in non-Japanese staff
Do you wish your non-Japanese staff could fit in better with the rest of the team?
Many non-Japanese staff have trouble figuring out how Japanese companies work.
Do your staff seem lost and unsure of their role?
Do they require a lot of explanation and guidance before they will act?
International staff may also bring habits and attitudes that are unfamiliar in Japan.
Are your non-Japanese people disruptive? Do they push their opinions too much?
Do they work smoothly with others or do they only work well on their own?
Sometimes even the smartest and most motivated non-Japanese staff struggle to reach their potential in Japan. It’s not a question of ability, but of understanding. They simply don’t know the rules of the game in Japan – why people behave as they do and what they expect of their colleagues.
A little cultural understanding and knowledge of how things are done in Japan can get international staff up to speed quickly so that they can become valuable, high-functioning members of your team

What people are saying about International Leaders Program
This seminar told me how important the Hou/ Ren/ Sou (report, contact, and consultation) is. I want to use it well and make my task done smoother.

In this seminar I learned to accept diversity and see things from different culture counterpart’s point of view, so I realized why Japanese coworkers get frustrated when I can’t understand their meaning quickly. Now I will always check and summarize Japanese people’s high context explanations if unclear, and I will do it in a polite, grateful and friendly way.
Now I can see what Japanese managers and co-workers are expecting from me, I feel more confident to work together. My career in Japan was only as a part-time worker and the term were short. Thus, this seminar was very meaningful for me to get the manner and behavior for working in Japan.
