Author Sakagami Youzou

“I believe that this phrase ‘While working, it would be best to treat it as your own problem’ is something common for everyone that is working in a company. I believe a majority of people will take that as for granted. But, let take a short moment to think about it. Do you really have the confidence to do that? Do you ever push the responsibility to a third party by saying ‘It because my superior told me to’ and ‘There is no choice given the surrounding situations’? Not only yourself, but how do you push the ideals of making it your own problem to the companions and subordinates that are affiliated with the job? This is the biggest problem.
In this publication, I will explain the actions that I had done and thoughts profoundly based on my own experiences. Among my statements, I hope that this book will be able to help you to realize the troubles in your daily work.”
