Why do your bosses, colleagues, and clients evaluate your performance lower than you do? Aren’t you performing well enough? Or maybe this gap simply comes from gender or cultural differences.
Join the Chubu Women in Business Committee in welcoming Saeko Noda, a former United Nations officer and experienced cross-cultural trainer who creates a bridge between Japanese and non-Japanese talent—and between men and women—working in global environments. Noda will share some lessons learned from real stories, illustrating honest opinions from international managers complaining about their subordinates, and how differences in communication styles among genders and nationalities create these gaps.
You will gain insights into:
- Common causes of conflict, including process-oriented vs. result-oriented communication styles
- What does “Ho Ren So” in communication mean to Japanese people? Why is it important?
- Gender and communication
- Tips to overcome barriers in gender and culture
- Communication management for solutions
After reflecting on the essence of this topic, you will find yourself more confident in streamlining your complicated tasks that involve complex communication with multiple stakeholders in cross-cultural work environments.
