Talked Dialogue “Coaching that brings joy to business elites” (Part 1), featuring wealth manager & personal coach Naoko Yamazaki and consultant Atsushi Fukuda

The professional coach Naoko Yamazaki has once again reminded us that leaders can only succeed with excellent followers.

Yamazaki is engaged in an inspiring range of activities from her career as a private banker to her initiatives to transform our society. Leaders grow by building on the pinnacle of their work in the past. They cannot continue to expand their companies by simply hanging on to past achievements. This conversation explains the reason for this, and it is highly recommended for all businesspeople!


Talked Dialogue “Coaching that brings joy to business elites” (Part 1)
Wealth manager & personal coach Naoko Yamazaki x Consultant Atsushi Fukuda

Yamazaki: “I had thought about what I really wanted to accomplish when I was doing this job, and I came to the conclusion that I wanted to transform our society. However, am I the kind of person who can become a top leader capable of transforming society? I doubt so. I don’t have the ability to change the mind of tens of thousands, or even millions, of people, and that’s not really what I was looking to do. However, I realized that I am really good at supporting such leaders.
From what I can see, the people at the top who are trying to change Japan’s society are facing a surprising number of hurdles and challenges.”
