My Wishes to You

Do you want to keep complaining about your Japanese boss and lose the precious skills & knowledge you can otherwise accumulate?

Or do you want to know the sound reasons of their actions (and inactions) and acquire the skills to excel at Japanese or any global environment?

If you believe Japanese business style is outdated and your bosses are far from global-smart, you are dead wrong! You just don’t know how to make sense of their behaviors. Why not? Because shukatsu 就活seminars pass it through and Japanese themselves cannot explain well because their values are their second nature!
You and Japanese don’t have time to waste any more. We must win together real fast. Become HAPPY and Make Them HAPPY too. And that makes me HAPPY too!

Come and see me in Nov. 25th!  Got appointments?  Cancel them! It’s worth it. This is the last discounted seminar in 2017.
