Redefining Traditional Leadership in a Global World


CUPERTINO, CA – May 3, 2018 – The role of a leader in companies, organizations, and associations is of vital importance. The success of a team is often measured by how organized the leader is. In the global world, there are many preconceived ideas and unique practices that are sometimes considered beauties of the culture. In Japan specifically, people who accurately speculate their boss's thoughts are recognized and most of time, promoted. This may not work in the so-called interconnected world. People's educated contents are different when their culture is different. Collective ideas, too, can go a long way. When there's balance, there's harmony.

Kenny Kaneko has been part of the leadership at several American Global IT companies for twenty years. He has built and run multinational groups with people coming from around ten different countries. He wrote Turning Japanese Execs into Effective Global Leaders that provides ways to stand out at the start of the leadership line. It explains issues that are happening every single day and redefines traditional leadership in the global world. Figure out the basic solutions so you can get out of the infinite loop of failure. Learn from the expert himself.
