If I told you that every Japanese employee in your company has the ability to be a great leader, would you believe me? If I told you that viewing problems as a “good mess” as opposed to something to be avoided and despised is part of a Japanese corporate culture, would that jive with your experience? If I told you that the Japanese are entirely open to dramatic change as opposed recalcitrant and fearful, would that defy conventional wisdom? If I told you that a massive finance company with multiple financial business can be successfully developed and sold in seven months, would the story behind that interest you?
If you find any of the questions above provocative or compelling, come and join the conversation with Visa Japan Country Manager, former GE Capital Japan CEO, and top-selling business book author Seiji Yasubuchi, who also helps schools and NPOs to build a better future.
This is the ninth installment of the popular Conversation With series. Independent Business Committee co-chair Steven Bleistein will begin an on-stage conversation with Seiji Yasubuchi, partway through which the audience will be invited to join in. Ample time will be given for questions from the audience. No slides and no speeches. Just lively discussion, your questions, and lots of business wisdom. If you are a manager involved in any kind of Japan market expansion or development, or a leader looking to remake his or her own business, this is an event not to be missed.
