Managing for Creativity in Japan Talking with Foreign Executives in Japan

Japanese Employees

I just love working with Japanese people here because this is a really unique situation for them and there are able to find their voice here. They are never going to work in a company like this in Japan. They are able to express themselves and have fun. They can push themselves and challenge themselves in a way that they wouldn’t be able to in a normal situation. I hope that is the way that they view it. This is a very happy office and I hope that it is more than a job for them. I know that in the U.K. I am just not going to find that level of dedication. They are really, really, dedicated and passionate. They work hard. U.K. employees are not going to work this hard, and they’re not necessarily going to be passionate. Employees here are not just doing everything by the book, which is interesting for them and I think that they find that challenging.
