Exchange information and motivate successful actions in effective global team discussions

The problem is Japanese are not used to chairing or participating in interactive diverse meetings…

Join and learn a J-global meeting style which creates effective results with good communication…

I had a really good time and shared ideas with other members and your workshop was AMAZING! Before I was too shy to talk in front of people but now I think that participating in discussion as a chair and other roles is very helpful for work!

Sales Representative, Hospitality Company

Since I am sometimes still struggling for communicating with overseas members via teleconference, your advice is clear, beneficial and helpful. And to let them know our Japanese culture or market is necessary too.

Administration Coordinator, Retail Company

Our meetings were not comfortable with engineers in US, Germany and China. I need to keep saying clear object or schedule, otherwise, they stop working. Even if they haven’t  accomplished tasks yet, they start talking about different topics. Now I know chair method and to talk clearly to match their lower context culture –sharing goals, benefits, and team roles.

Sales Engineer, Machine Tools Maker
