  • Distressed by Relationships?

    2017 09 16.speak up

    One of Japan’s leading pharmaceutical manufacturing companies conducted a survey of business professionals in Tokyo, 20 to 59 years of age with a theme “Do you feel tired?” & the reason for your tiredness.

    As a result, 80% of the respondents answered that they were feeling tired & the top 2 reasons were:

    1. Relationships at work (44%).
    2. Contents of work (40%).

    In response to “What kind of boss’s words can make you tired the most?”, the following answers were on top 3:

    1. It’s such a common sense. 
    2. You can’t do that easy work?
    3. Didn’t I tell you before?

    Management needs to know how their words can make their employees tiredness, even if unintentionally. Not to ruin relationships, let’s tell them how thankful you are for what they do.

  • Management is Better Being Goofy

    2017 09 01.speak up

    I have always been a person who loves to win every game, but this characteristic can cause “too much work” sometimes. Through some bitter experience I had in high school, I learned to enjoy working even on negative issues, not to overwork myself.

    As a Medical Doctor and author, Junichi Watanabe said in his book before he passed away 3 years ago, “nothing is more powerful than adaptability in this internationalized era, and the origin of this adaptability is ‘thick skin’.” Mr. Kenichiro Mogi, a famous brain scientist indicates “everything goes well without deep thought.” He also says that management “does better being goofy.” Let’s admit that we are goofy – It’s important to be able to forgive yourself. Have faith, and enjoy every day without focusing too much on details. Things will then go to a better direction.
