This is the first time I took the program that help foreigners to feel integrated and comfortable in Japanese company. Actually my company now encounter many problems with non- Japanese staffs. Kawatani sensei was able to take the complex and make it simple. I was surprised that he pointed out areas where I should be do things better. And I also like the seminar is very easy- going atmosphere. This seminar is very helpful and tuned in to where the participants are. Sensei was very approachable and encouraging. I and maybe the all participants there all feel that we learnt a lot about the things that it was really fun too. We learnt about some reasons behind the Japanese work culture, their business behaviors and concrete steps to connect with them. As my case, I really needed and enjoyed this seminar for many reasons not least for interacting with other non - Japanese who work for Japan companies and many professionals from various disciplines who all have the same interest about cross cultural. Even now, Japanese work culture, their business behaviors are sometime too difficult to understand but I still deeply love Japan and Japanese. I hope this seminar will reach more people and wish every foreigner will success work at Japanese companies.
Had a good time at Kawatani’s seminar, was fun and informative. He was able to give practical advice about actual issue we were facing while working in Japan. I have been in Japan for 6 years, even then it was extremely helpful to have him organize the feelings and thoughts I had about how Japanese society and in particular Japanese organizations work. The documents we were given had practical and clear advice! Highly recommend attending, make sure to think about some of the biggest issues you have before attending. Also make sure to let Kawatani san know before attending and he will try to tailor a solution for you. Good Luck and thanks Kawatani san!
Yes, I will give 5 STARS to this seminar and Kudos to Kawatani sensei's initiative and super presentation skills! I attended the very first seminar on Nov25th, 2017. He has deep knowledge and experience in cross-cultural management.Even I am working in Japan for last 3 years now, I have learned many secrete/hidden meanings of the behavior of Japanese people on work-place, also about the ideas and values of Japanese management system.It was not kind of one-way communication, but all participants got the chance to get involved which helped to explore the topic, eventually helped us to learn most out of it.Got answers to many of my "Why Japanese People??
By participating to Mr Kawatani’s conference, I managed to understand the philosophy of Japanese companies deeper, and learn more about different parts of the Japanese culture. He also proposed diverse guidance on our approach to certain situations at work, in order to solve misunderstandings that can raise between your manager and you, and dissolve the frustration that would follow. I would be very happy to take part to another seminar soon to deepen my knowledge about the Japanese professional environment and themes of the Japanese culture in general. “Remember why you came to Japan originally”, we had to ponder on that sentence for a short time, and I thought that there could not be better theme to reflect on. Even if the culture is sometimes difficult to understand as a foreigner, I still love Japan very deeply! Thank you Mr Kawatani and Yukiko for your precious time on that day!!
