In the U.S., there are quite a few people who are working hard as a businessperson on one hand and as a volunteer on the other. A friend of mine, Mr. Miyazaki, is such a businessman in charge of heading the LA office of a major precision machinery company in Japan, while voluntarily offering a short-term training program for Japanese students to learn from the American way of doing business in California. Mr. Miyazaki said that he would like participants to obtain some hints for their future careers as well as strong motivation to pursue their objectives in life, whatever career they might choose. Although the students enrolled in his program so far were "good" students by the Japanese standard, they seemed very slow and often hesitant in making their own decisions and expressiong their own opinions in response to the questions or problems given to them on the program. Mr. Miyazaki wishes to help students overcome such a negative cultural attitude by offering a better and longer program next spring. Hopefully, there will be more programs like this to be offered for Japanese young people to grow in an international environment, and Japan needs it for its survival in the future.
