Here’s what I hear people say:


“I feel like I’m in the dark…like I can see things happening that are different but I don’t really understand why.”

“I’m worried about offending people.”

“My Japanese colleagues won’t say, ‘Hey, you gotta change your approach’. Everyone sits back and lets the train crash happen.”

“I’m not sure if my company will promote me since I’m not Japanese.”

These are all fixable…let’s build your knowledge and confidence!
