This transferable skills seminar is targeted for young researchers. The seminar will be conducted in English.
We are holding an intercultural communication workshop for international and Japanese PhD students and postdocs who are interested in working for Japanese companies.
Even though you may be familiar with studying with your Japanese team members in your labs, the work environment of Japanese companies is quite different and unique, and unnecessary misunderstandings or confusion may happen. The workshop will be provided by a professional Japanese lecturer in English who specializes in intercultural communication in Japanese corporate environments.
- Understand complex cultural structures and experience the underlying cultural gap behind superficial words and deeds
- Realize methods for avoiding misunderstanding derived from cross-cultural communication
- Deepen understanding for Japanese culture and Japanese companies
- Familiarize with a new communication style which is required in the global environment
