1-2. Action learning

-What is Action Learning?
Action learning is an educational method designed to achieve human resource development goals in line with business strategies in a short period of time through a cycle of action and learning. The success or failure of this form of training depends greatly on the ability of the trainer, therefore the choice of trainer is key to the effectiveness of the training.

-Reasons for high evaluation:
My highly rated Action-Learning training programs are designed based on a deep understanding of my clients' business strategies and I aim to deliver tangible and quantifiable outputs in approximately six months. My entrepreneurial experience, including over 18 years as a professional instructor, and my background in business development and marketing at large international corporations have given me the tools I need to achieve and maintain a consistent 100% client repeat rate on Action Learning projects, some of which have been conducted more than 10 times in a row.

- Design and facilitation features:
I aim to realize new value creation based on diversity utilization and innovation strategies, and to develop human resources capable of proposing new value in an increasingly diverse and complex environment. I specialize in training programs for mid-career professionals and joint training programs for a variety of industries. I also excel as an instructor for global teams, as I am fluent in both English and Japanese and have experience training in both languages.

About Myself

Academic and professional background

Academic Background:
Bachelor of Arts(B.A.)from Waseda University (Tokyo, Japan) School of Humanities and Social Sciences, English Studies (1994-1998)

Work History:
- 2006 - Present: Human Resource Development Specialist, Founder of GREEN Co., Ltd., Co-Founder of TOBIRA NIPPON
- 1998 - 2005: Marketing Specialist at the following companies: Unilever (Nov 2003 – Dec 2005), MARS (Apr 2003 – Oct 2003), BAT (Aug 2001 – Mar 2003), Unicharm (Apr 1998 – Jul 2001)

My Career Story:
There are many definitions of a career, but I consider a career to be the story of how you have viewed and utilized your specialty. Here is my career story in brief.

My love of books and languages led me to major in literature at university, and later, through my early work, I became convinced that my forte lay in my skill with words. I found it especially satisfying to express and communicate vague ideas and things that had not yet taken shape. Since then, I have been engaged in the work of business development using words for more than 25 years, changing the field from marketing to training as I went along.

During my time as a marketing specialist, I acquired the ability to verbalize and express concepts, putting them into the form of products and services for the world to see. At the same time, I learned about the whole business process, from creating concepts to managing them in the real world. Working for international companies also deepened my knowledge and experience of cultural diversity.

GREEN, a corporate training service provider that I launched in 2006, has been a pioneer in the field of global human resource development and diversity education. At a time when there were few precedents in this field, we created concepts, systematized the necessary elements, and offered training programs that deepened the knowledge and experience of our participants.

I am always looking for the next challenge, bringing together the three main competencies I have acquired over the past 25+ years of my career: business development, business management, and human resource development to expand my field of helping others. I intend to continue to expand the scope of my work beyond existing work practices.
