[BOG/BOC Special talk] Capitalism that works : Japan’s Economic Realities, Potential & Challenges

2024-01-26

[BOG/BOC Special talk] Speaker: Mr. Jesper Koll

Capitalism that works :  Japan’s Economic Realities

Japan has got what it takes to be an economic superpower and role model. As new global realities and national rivalries force unprecedented challenges and uncertainty for global leaders, Japan’s social resilience, political stability, corporate competitiveness, technocratic pragmatism and private sector innovation potential are poised to deliver positive upside surprises and real opportunities. No one doubts the potential; but can Japan really outperform on its own merits? Learn where exactly the opportunities are; how you can engage and profit from Japan’s new structural up-cycle; why there is more to sustainable prosperity than innovation and profit; what forces could derail it; and why Japan’s demographic destiny is an overarching positive force for next-Generation leaders, citizens and the rising Asian middle class.

Effective Team Dynamics (ETD) workshop 2

2023-11-21
B700, Lab3

This in-person interactive workshop is for graduate students, post-docs, and other researchers. This ICOGS* workshop is offered by the Georgia Tech Effective Team Dynamics Initiative and will be facilitated by Prof Mary Lynn Realff (MSE). * (ICOGS) Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Graduate Students

Working as part of a team, or group, comes with both benefits and challenges. The benefits include interacting with people who bring different viewpoints, expertise and experiences to the table. However, the challenges include communicating effectively with people who have different backgrounds and dealing constructively with conflict due to different viewpoints.

The workshop will explore how diversity in a team can strengthen it, different approaches to dealing with conflict, how to have a “difficult conversation” with both peers and your supervisor, and strategies for avoiding communications problems. Take home tools to improve your team skills will be provided.
