today i wanna talk abt hoshin kanri in practice
it s so pleasing to learn this management term. to me, who wanna control and do everything if i own a business or a gig, this term is really useful and practical. by studying this term i can make my ppl know what exactly i want and how they can do their best. OMG, why didnt i know this term before organising my previous show?
to make ur ppl know the vision and goals and devote to them, i think it s what a successful leader should do. hoshin kanri's catchball process, i think is an ideal term to deploy. it can let everyone in the company know what the boss want and the boss can ensure everyone knows it. as this process might make stakeholders get involved, i suggest, keep ur business secret carefully
one more thing is, i think, in real life, we more or less use hoshin kanri but not in a systematic or theoratical way. we know what the boss wants, we know how to satisfy him and satisfy ourselves, so that we work. the boss, of course wants his ppl know what exactly he wany clearly, so that he can make his ppl do what they think is right. honshin kanri, in practical way, is sth in our veins, our blood, even it is our insticnt. however, japanese ppl and hutchins make it more systtematic and theoratical, sothat they succeed, they are famous.
promoting, annoucements, meetings, r the ways to practise catchball and honshin kanri, arent they?

it s so happy that someone can share her experience in coaching with me. in a world that men control most things, business, life, war, etc, women are thought to be the weakness in leading people. in a specific situation, even ur culture, background, etc will be, how to say, discriminated by others. even u r a man, u will be looked down upon by other men. being an overseas student for a long time, i have such experience. if u r interested in the leadership and coaching on the base on gender, culture, place, u can read the following journals

one more thins, Sue, i dont know if u will read my blog again or not, but i dont really know what 'women in love' is. is it a film? please tell me if u read the blog
ok, excluding ur sex, race and culture, can leadership be coached into ur mind? i think the answer is positive. by learning the theories, a leader can be affeccted and rethink anything good for him and his organisation. deeper, this is human;s instinct to learn. if u, read a book abt a successful leader, i think u can learn a lot. just like i learn a lot from Michael Jordan's autobiography and Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. By studying a successful person's experience, u will consider how to develop ur ability, how to avoid the failure and how to, make as much money as u can. lol
so i think, coaching leadership is not one thing that let the leader know what he has to do but telling him nothing, but a process that assist the leader to think to rethink and then obtain the core of the theories. thus appropriate chattings, teachings, and trainings are necessary. being a leadership coach, i think i should make the leader think and learn, but not throw loads of materials on his desk and say, ok, study them and report to me everyday.
having read Sue's comments, i think it s also important in our life. sometimes u can see someone, especially those sho almost the same as u, is more successful than u. u know their factors of success well but u dont know why u r not as good as them. this time, if someone can assist u with the information u have, i think u can learn from it and be nearer to the success.u get the traits from the information.
so in real life, assisting ur leader to study the leadership theories. u dont need to tell them what to do, but tell them what it is when it s time. ur leader wll be successful and grateful to u, and ur leadership coach role will be fulfilled.
it s so happy to finish my PMA. here i have some opinions about coaching
coaching, to me is quite effective because it can change u secrectly and u even dont realise---just like i was changed by LE, i think it s kind of coaching. the easiest way is to push or infuse other to accept the concept---just like what i experienced in high school. but to affect other unconsciously, i think it s an art, a charisma rather than a technic.
but i really doubt the time that we need to coach others. if u really want others be affected unconsciously, i think it might take a long time. just like u wanna affect some bad guys to be good. it seems possible if u always do good things in fromt of him and suddenly one day he becomes good. if he s bad from his gene, i think ur coaching is totally a fail,
so i think, start by coaching is good, but it s more correct to say 'coaching through the whole process'. by doing this it s more realistic and easier for us to write. lol...even, i think, for most of us, coaching is mystery and systematic, even we cant coach others now. so, i think, in the situation that Graeme didnt talk abt coach in detail, i think the easier way for us is coaching during the process, but not at the beginning.
just ssme viewpoints. write tomorrow
