Lotgenoten Luncheon meeting "Job and Personality"

Wed 16 November 2011 12:00 - 14:00
Board room, Rabobank
2,000JPY (lunch and soft drinks will be served)

Have you ever wondered how other managers cope when facing the same challenges that you face in your day-to-day business in Japan? Do you feel that you and others could benefit from sharing experiences of doing business in this unique and challenging market? Then the NCCJ is pleased to invite you to LOTGENOTEN on 16 November 2011.

If you are not Dutch, you may wonder what is LOTGENOTEN? The official translation mentions “fellow sufferers” or “partners in misfortune”, albeit with a smile; we prefer to talk about “Partners in Circumstance”. Everybody faces challenges in Japan. It would seem to make sense to learn from each others’ successes as well as failures and hopefully speed up the learning curve. That is what LOTGENOTEN is all about.

For this Lotgenoten session the main theme is Personality Profiling and Job Matching. What is most important for professional success - Personality, Outer Behaviour, Experience or Paper Skills? How do you uncover the hidden aspects of a person's intuitive reactions? And how do you avoid bringing someone on board that seems to have the right potential on the outside, but lacks the inner personality that really determines it! To be frank - it is all about personality! Skills are necessary and the right behaviour is important - but none of those have any real value if the basic personality is wrong. Let us have an open exchange of experiences, perspectives and ideas regarding putting the Right kind of person at the Right kind of job! It will provide you with valuable insights to help you succeed in Japan. And everything discussed is strictly OFF THE RECORD.

The moderator for this session is Mr. Mats Bruzaeus, President & Representative Director of Garuda Japan K.K. Garuda Japan K.K. is a leading international developer of business-oriented Human Resource tools for personnel selection and matching, individual coaching, Corporate Climate Mapping, 360 º assessment, team development and leadership training.
