In the last few decades, Japan has undergone “three paradigm shifts”. ・”Digital shift” where “ideas” are more important than places and information with the power of the Internet
・“Social shift” in which “connection and sustainability” became more important than competition and growth due to the Lehman shock ・ Due to the coronavirus epidemic, management and monitoring became difficult, and “independence” became important “life shift”
These three changes have made traditional strategies and policies obsolete for companies. In addition, we are beginning to see a growing awareness among front-line employees that “we can’t continue like this” and “the organization must change.”
This book was born against this background. It introduces “how to change an organization from just one person”, such as managers, leaders, and employees in the field. The point is to change from the “relationship” with people close to you.
Organizations that fall into a negative cycle tend to be in a “failure cycle” in which “only pursuing numbers and results, relationships become strained, thoughts stop, and actions become passive.” . We will transform this into a “success cycle” in which “deepening relationships with people close to you through dialogue, changing your thinking by conveying the meaning of your work, and generating spontaneous action through internal motivation.”
・ Improving the quality of “relationships” = creating “psychological safety” in the field and encouraging dialogue for value creation ・Improve the quality of “thinking” = share the “meaning of work” and change “must do” to “want to”
・Improve the quality of “behavior” = Create “internal motivation” and create “motivation”
By disseminating the success stories born from that, the entire organization will eventually change. This book will show you how to do just that.

At the Meishodo Bookstore Atre Ueno store (closed on May 10, 2022) in Ueno Station, the author, editors/sales/public relations of the publisher, and bookstore staff formed a team from the beginning of the book’s release. We held a selection fair. A number of projects were born, such as the sale of bonus videos limited to purchasers at the store, books with handwritten messages, installation of message colored paper and oversized posters. More than 100 copies were sold each month, and 474 copies were sold in about five months.
