A Mel Toast Business Ethics Exclusive
"We in Japan learned during the bubble economy that businesses who pursued money first failed. The business world has lost sight of this basic business ethics tenet."
-JAL CEO Haruka Nishimatsu
Can American Executives Lead A Civility Evolution by Stopping the Legalized Human Slave Labor Trade?
What a guy. He rides the bus to work, shuns Armani and buys his suits at thrift shops. JAL's CEO Haruka Nishimatsu is the Anti-hubris, and his is an amazing story of humility and sense of team with his company and workers.
Dubbed as CEO of the People, note that in the above video, Mr. Nishimatsu's employees were fellow citizens who need jobs and not a gaggle of cheap imported human slave laborers. A few U.S. gluttonous "thought leaders" and cult addled wannabes could learn a thing or two from decent human beings like this CEO who chose to lead his company with compassion and civility by putting the needs of his local citizens and the company's customers first.
