What have been the main lessons you have learned in your career and how do you implement them in your management?
The biggest lesson from my business experiences is the importance of communication. Communication based on mutual trust, heart to heart and face to face would surely bring mutual understanding and solve many problems.
English is very important as the universal communication tool. However, to learn other languages is also important to do business locally.
My management is based on mutual trust, which comes from communication.
Peter Drucker: I read many books of his and I followed some of them.
