Kokorozashi Webinar: “How to Find Deeper Meaning at Work”

Thursday, June 2, 2022 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM (Pacific Daylight Time)
Join this special seminar to learn how we can live a more meaningful life by finding deeper meaning at work.

We are excited to invite Mr. Nick Duggan to share his perspective as the founder of Deeper Work, leadership and career coaching firm with a focus on helping people make work more meaningful. Following Mr. Duggan, Tomoya Nakamura, President of GLOBIS USA, Inc., will introduce a GLOBIS concept called kokorozashi, which translates to “finding and developing a personal mission.” Then, Mr. Duggan and Mr. Nakamura will have a dialogue on how to find meaning and kokorozashi in the workplace and in life in general. Finding kokorozashi in the workplace or in life, in our view, can greatly enhance your happiness and sense of fulfillment.
