With over thirty years experience teaching and doing research on Japan, I've learned a fair amount that I enjoy sharing with others. Of course, there's plenty more to learn. As an anthropologist, I focus on trying to understand culture and I bring my knowledge of Japan into my work as a consultant in the areas of ethics and leadership and organizational culture.
I've worked with non-profit organizations such as museums, for profits including companies like AIG and Removery, and the US government on topics related to Japan, organizational culture, ethics, and leadership. I regularly teach a one-day seminars on Culture, Ethics, and Leadership and another called Just Stop: Zen, Stress, Anxiety, and Uncertainty.
I also write for outlets such as FastCompany and The Harvard Business Review. You can find examples on the op ed page on this site. And my most recent academic book focuses on entrepreneurialism in rural Japan and has received very positive reviews.
