Become a Master, Japanese Style! The Harada Method (talk)

Agile comes from Lean; Lean comes from Japan. The Harada Method makes it all work!

Japan dominated the world in quality and productivity. Decades later the West is still trying to catch up. What Lean did for manufacturing products, the Harada Method does for developing people.

After 20 years of studying the world’s greatest coaches Takashi Harada created a personal management system that made champions. He then took his method to industry and opened a new chapter in Japan’s book of management practice excellence.

According to the Japan Management Association, this is the ultimate way to develop people – a critical competitive advantage for any organisation.

What if you can influence others more without changing what you say? In this session you’ll be introduced to some very basic concepts of how we are perceived by others through non-verbal communication, a critical aspect for any leader or change agent.
