Soka University, Tokyo, Japan, April - July 2016
Faculty Workshop Series on Humanistic Management
From April to July 2016 we were holding a series of four workshops with members of the business faculty of Soka University in Tokyo, Japan.
Led by Soka University's Dean of the Business Department Prof. Naoki Kuriyama, we were running a series of four workshops during the semester long stay of HMC Director Ernst von Kimakowitz in Tokyo. The following topics were presented and discussed during the sessions that took place from April to July 2016.
- Session One: The first session took place on Aril 22nd and was held on the three stepped approach to humanistic management.
- Session Two: The second session took place on May 13th and was held on the topic of the main Drivers of humanistic management.
- Session Three: The third session took place on June 10th and was held on the topic of Buddhist perspectives on humanistic management.
- Session Four: The fourth and last session took place on July 15th and was held on the topic of assessing opportunities for further collaboration between Soka University and the HMC.
Overall the workshops were highly beneficial in refining propositions of the HMC and broaden our vision including cultural and spiritual elements from Japan and the Buddhist tradition. We very much look forward to further developing this fruitful relationship.
