“My work in Japan is to enable leaders in Japanese companies to solve global problems profitably. I am not limiting my work to only Japanese companies purposely. It’s just that, at this time, Japanese companies are the only clients who have embraced my passion for long-term thinking and global transformation. Even during the economic downturn Japanese companies continue to invest in the leadership development of their people, in improving their execution excellence, and in long term business transformation that will lead to expanded overseas revenue and business breakthroughs in general. I believe that global Japanese companies are committed to more than making a profit – they are committed to doing so in a socially responsible way that benefits all people of our planet. Over half of the world’s population lives in Asia. The economic center of the world is shifting to Asia. Many leaders in Japanese companies are from the US, Europe and other parts of Asia. By consulting with leaders in global Japanese companies I am serving the entire world.” – Kimberly Wiefling

Our Value Proposition: For international Japanese companies that want to continue to grow, but lack sufficient leaders with global mindsets, our global leadership and management programs build global leaders who can achieve what seems impossible, but is merely difficult – preparing them to solve global problems profitably.
As you can see from this ad in the largest business newspaper in Japan, Kimberly’s more famous in Japan than the USA. Well, as they say, “The expert is the person with the plane ticket from farthest away!” Following in the footsteps of her role model, Dr. W. Edwards Deming, someday more US companies will discover her talent for enabling breakthroughs in individuals, teams and businesses.
