Program Overview

Four Perspectives Necessary for Being Active as an Expatriate
Expatriates who achieve success abroad share a common trait—they refuse to let language and cultural differences become excuses. Additionally, they possess a deep understanding of the distinctions between domestic and international operations, incorporating this awareness into their local strategies.

To enhance your overseas business endeavors, it is essential to be mindful of the 'four gaps between domestic and overseas business in Japan.' These gaps encompass the unique challenges faced when expanding internationally and can significantly impact your business's growth and prosperity.

Ability to understand different cultures to produce results in a highly diverse organization
To effectively engage with diverse markets, customers, partners, and employees outside of Japan, it is crucial to possess a profound comprehension of your company and foster self-awareness.

Acquiring 'intercultural understanding skills' plays a vital role in comprehending and effectively communicating the true intentions of both yourself and the other party.

These skills are instrumental in facilitating successful interactions and enabling you to thrive in your endeavors abroad
