(Headquarters: Ota City, Gunma Prefecture, Representative: Daisuke Nishimaki) will change its president on May 1, 2024.
The person selected as the successor was a 21-year-old female part-time staff member!!
Why was she chosen as the successor?
What challenges do you face in order to become a manager?
What kind of new structure do you aim for as a company?
We will tell you about the current situation of President-elect Morosawa, including his efforts to become president, stories of failures, and what he is trying to do to overcome obstacles. ■I read books and internet information about management and business succession in a hurry…
As a store manager, I have experience in managing a single store, such as human resource development and cost control, but what do I need to do to manage the entire company?
I needed to make a start as the next president, so the first thing I did was to closely observe President Nishimaki, current executives, veteran store managers, area managers, etc. to learn how to be a manager and the next president. And I had to self-analyze what I was lacking.
However, the more I compared myself to my seniors who had a lot of life experience, the more I became impatient, and in hopes of doing something about it, I entered a labyrinth of reading various books and information at random.
When I was starting to not know where to start, I suddenly
“I hope that Mr. Morosawa will make this company even more
interesting and better.”
I remember when President Nishimaki asked me to become the next president. “Let’s think about what I want to inherit from this company and what I need to do to achieve that.”
My vision became clearer.
[Image 1:×843.jpg] ■What is needed to “inherit the founding president’s aspirations and corporate philosophy”?
As the next president, when I think about what I want to prioritize as I take over the company.
“Management that emphasizes human power, “as a person,” as advocated by President Nishimaki.”
“A culture of being a support group for dream chasers, typical of Skyscraper.” I wanted to inherit the.
I seriously thought about what I needed to do to achieve that and what I should do.
Up until now, I have sympathized with the company’s aspirations and worked wholeheartedly as a staff member to address the issues in front of me, but in order to coordinate and steer the entire company as president, I have to share my thoughts and feelings with the company. Having friends who can help you is essential.
Our company has a diverse workforce of different ages, genders, and nationalities, including student staff such as high school and university students, senior staff, and foreign staff.
Members with such different backgrounds share the values ​​that we want to cherish as a company.
What can I do to make the most of my strengths so that I can become a pillar of my work?
In order to do this, I believe that it is necessary to have the ability to communicate in one’s own words the corporate philosophy and culture that are the basis of management, and to continue to convey the message over and over again so that many staff members can relate to it. I did.
[Image 2:×752.jpg] ■Communicate your “thoughts” to draw a picture of the future with your colleagues from the perspective of the field
Up until now, I have been good at showing things through actions, such as giving customer service guidance to junior staff.
In order to communicate our corporate philosophy in my own words, I am conscious of increasing the number of words I can draw from, and have made it a habit to always look up words I don’t understand in any situation, such as in reading, news, or daily conversation. . It’s a little bit, but I’m gaining confidence by building up my skills day by day.
In addition, in order to make your words more persuasive, try imitating people in your company who are good at presentations or have good communication skills, and try to incorporate body language and body language in a way that makes it easier for people to empathize with you. We are also working on this.
I am outputting what I have learned little by little during the field trips to each store that I accompany President Nishimaki to. I have learned a lot from seeing the president figure out what the staff needs and give them advice and guidance.
I would like to focus on what situations and matters, carefully observe what kind of conversations I have with the staff, gain a solid understanding of how to behave as a president, and find my own way of approaching things.
