Education: A company grows with its people. Human resources education is one of my hobbies.


What are the main lessons you've learned so far in your career and how do you apply them to your management?

Be positive, Not negative!

Scolding is a necessary part of nurturing people, but praise is also important.

Many Japanese people have the habit of finding fault with others and criticizing them.

However, the most important thing in human education is to find out each person's strengths and personality and develop them.



I'm grateful to my parents. My parents gave me a lesson in what kind of person I should be and gave me the opportunity to be well educated. I am also particularly grateful to Dr. Masahiro Kakugo and Professor Hiroyuki Ohno. Dr. Kakugo and Prof. Ohno taught me how interesting and unique chemistry is and how I should innovate my work. And most importantly, they taught me what it means to continue learning throughout my life.
