Looking to bring out the best of your Japanese team?
Companies in Japan often struggle with how to motivate their Japanese staff. Surveys show that globally, Japanese employees have the lowest levels of engagement and trust in their companies. What can your company do to overcome the challenges to motivation in Japan?
Whether you’re managing Japanese salespeople, specialist professionals, administrative staff, or managers, this talk will help you better understand the cultural levers that impact motivation in Japan – and that they are not always the same as those in other countries.
Sharing with us her insights and observations from working with numerous foreign firms in Japan and major Japanese companies, will be intercultural business expert and prolific author, Rochelle Kopp, Managing Principal and Founder of Japan Intercultural Consulting. Specializing in cross-cultural communication and human resource management, she has written 30 books, including The Rice-Paper Ceiling: Breaking Through Japanese Corporate Culture, The Lowdown: Business Etiquette Japan, and the upcoming Creating Engaged Employees in Japan in English and 『日本企業の社員は、なぜこんなにもモチベーションが低いのか?』、『反省しないアメリカ人をあつかう方法34』、and『ソフト・マネジメントスキル―こころをつかむ部下指導法』in Japanese.
Rochelle will discuss common reasons why motivation in Japan tends to flag, and what techniques work best in the Japanese context to get your team members more excited about their jobs. Join us for a practical talk that is sure to give you new perspectives.
