CJEB presents a lunchtime "zadankai" seminar with:

Sheena Iyengar
S.T. Lee Professor of Business
Columbia Business School

Moderated by
Hugh Patrick, R.D. Calkins Professor of International Business Emeritus; Director, Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School

Video of this event is available here. Unfortunately, there was some trouble with the audio, but it is still understandable.

Many Japanese companies are increasingly pursuing growth strategies that emphasize markets outside of Japan. Professor Iyengar will discuss the leadership challenges faced by these companies as well as some strategies they are pursuing. She will also describe her own research and education initiative on global leadership which she is working to introduce in Japan. She will address and invite discussion on issues such as language skills, cultural intelligence, decision making styles, networking, and the seniority system.
