Acquired New Visions

“I am very much interested in the coaching method of ‘leading is listening’ since I have not experienced the method.” ”Marketing system theory as well as new marketing in mature society is very fresh to me.” “Since my educational background is science, my concern was only to produce a product. I was not interested in how the product would be used by the consumer. My point of view has been widened. “ ”I was amazed at the causal relationship between war and environmental destruction. Wars cause environmental destruction, and environmental destruction causes wars. “
