We are proud to announce the Spring 2020 launch of a new program: The Japanese Management Leadership Program. As the world undergoes profound technological and economic transformation, Japanese executives and emerging leaders in corporate, nonprofit, and governmental organizations must stay up to date with the latest research and methodologies to hone their leadership skills.  CJEB’s Japanese Management Leadership Program supports this ongoing skill investment by offering customized leaders-in-learning workshops and research seminars for our Visiting Scholars and the broader CJEB network members in New York and Japan throughout the year. Our leaders-in-learning initiatives have four major components:

 

(1) Leadership Research Seminar

(2) Global Communication in Leadership Training

(3) Innovation and Diversity Workshop Series

(4) Women’s Career Advancement

 

The leadership research seminar series provides a platform for academics and practitioners to share their latest research findings on the study of leadership, organizational management, diversity and the changing industry landscape. The seminar is designed to foster intellectual diversity in ways that help identify areas of opportunity for leadership development. The summary report for one of the events held under this initiative can be read here.

 

Our global communication in leadership curriculum empowers participants with science and research-based tools and techniques to become an impactful communicator in a variety of global settings. A team of world-renowned instructors with a strong understanding of Japanese organizational and cultural contexts will help participants cultivate essential skills. The summary report for one of the events held under this initiative can be read here.

 

The innovation and diversity workshop series brings experiential learning to the next level by utilizing human-centered design and creative collaborative methods to drive innovation at work. Led by prominent design and entrepreneurship experts, participants learn how to embrace and enhance diversity in the workforce while maintaining the traditional values and culture that are important to their organizations in Japan.

The CJEB women’s career advancement initiative fosters discussion on how to empower women in the workplace and provides novel career path development workshops. This initiative seeks to turn the “gender” challenge into tangible assets for the Japanese economy and society as a whole.

The Japanese Management Leadership Program is co-founded by Professor Yumiko Shimabukuro of the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and Ryoko Ogino, the Managing Director of CJEB. Director of CJEB, Professor David Weinstein and Founder of CJEB, Professor Hugh Patrick, serve as the Founding Academic Directors of the Japanese Management Leadership Program to provide advisory support and guidance.
