TRAINING : BUSINESS CULTURE

Working and Communicating with Japanese Colleagues

WHO IS IT FOR?

Non-Japanese employees working with Japanese colleagues or clients.

There is no prerequisite for attending this program; nevertheless, in order to fully take advantage of the training, we recommend that participants have at least three months work experience in the organization before attending the program.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Everything you need to know to better understand your Japanese colleagues and adapt in order to work and communicate more efficiently. You will gain a deeper understanding of key concepts and work practices and how they differ from yours, and become more familiar with business protocol.

Content includes:

  • Facts about Japan which help explain its cultural foundation
  • Key concepts of Japanese culture (e.g. group orientation, hierarchy, harmony, honne/tatemae)
  • Significant ways in which the Japanese ways of doing business differ from your culture (e.g. meetings, decision-making, information sharing, negotiation, socializing)
  • Working in or with a Japanese organization: How do Japanese colleagues see us? How to best meet their expectations? How to get things done? Case studies
  • Communication: how to become more effective in communicating with Japanese colleagues (characteristics, role plays and best practices)
  • Protocol and business etiquette

The trainer will illustrate the points discussed with examples from his or her own experience working in Japan and abroad.

  • This training is also regularly offered as a public course. Please find all details below.
