Lisa Gill interviews Yuji Yamada, originally published at leadermorphosis.co
Leadermorphosis is a podcast exploring the emerging world of self-management and progressive organisations. Hosted by Lisa Gill, each episode features a guest thought leader or practitioner offering a unique perspective on new and innovative ways of working.
Yuji Yamada is the founder of EnFlow and is interested in exploring the differences between approaching organisational transformation from a ‘Western lens’ and a Japanese lens. We talk about Teal organisations from Frederic Laloux’s book Reinventing Organisations (which has sold 100,000 copies in Japan) and about Yuji’s homegrown concept of ‘Jinen management’.
Could East Asian organisations be at an advantage in developing new ways of working by drawing on their ancient wisdom and inherent cultural paradigms of interconnectedness?
