I took an Intercultural Communication Training of Ms. Masako Kato together with a few colleague HBO lecturers Cross Cultural Management and some Japanese businessmen and also Dutch businessmen who work for Japanese companies.
She has a deep understanding in the Dutch way of communication as well as the Japanese, and gives a lot of examples of conflicts and conciliations that are from real business situations. Everyone can recognize the situations she tells. So we can now take lessons from our own experiences.
The communication exercises (having a short conversation and writing an e-mail) unveil our hidden weaknesses in our communication.
It was inspiring and exciting but also nice and cosy. We learned a lot and we laughed a lot.

Meeting Masako was a joy from the first moment. Masako coached an emerging partnership which I was part of. I very much enjoyed Masako’s creative thinking, integrity, non-judgment, and how she expertly caught nuances in our system we missed.
I would highly recommend Masako as an organization and systems coach if you are looking for a professional with a 40,000 foot view!
Masako will help you transform your teams in ways few consultants can!
