“The key to inspiring and engaging people is to define why an organization exists and give each person the opportunity to discover their own purpose connected to the mastery of their work and the contribution they make. This discovery of purpose and connection to mastery leads to the development of one’s ikigai, or reason for being.
Ikigai is a uniquely Japanese concept that stems from the root word “ikiru” which means life and “kai” which translates as the realization that one hopes for. It is often expressed as the reason one gets out of bed in the morning. The better a leader is at connecting people with their work and structuring work with an element of challenge and personal satisfaction, the higher the level of ikigai.
Work itself then becomes secondary to the interaction people have with their work and the opportunity they have to express themselves through continuous improvement, growth and personal mastery.”

What accomplished leaders are saying
Own the Gap showed us the Key Systems that are needed in order to manage successful teams, Management for Omotenashi teaches us what is needed to lead successful teams. The book sets the standards for leadership thinking and behaviors that bring the best out of people. Mike teaches us how to get past copying others and helps us see how and what to teach others so that we all can do our best work and create the best results. This book lays out an uncommon but very necessary philosophy for leaders and teams to follow. It teaches leaders and team members how to think and act in ways that bring out and achieve our very best.
A must read for any leader looking to improve their business processes and culture. The tools, concepts, and philosophies are applicable to any type of work environment or business support functions. The elements of this book contain the keys to success with not only your business, but also with your own personal development to be a great leader.
This book reinforced, validated, deepened and expanded the things that I whole heartedly believe in and gets to the foundation that drives operational excellence. We know culture is driven by leaders. But expressing to leaders what they do in lean culture often results in missing the point and perfunctory motion. We get better results when we teach them how to think and what to believe; that your people are the priority, serve them as your customer, help them be happy, find passion, success, growth, find their ikigai. Management for Ometenashi captures the depth of a leaders role in a kaizen cutlure and gives a practical framework for effective execution.
