Go from Good to Better to Best...

                ... in your Business, in your Lifestyle































Executive English


As a business executive, you must operate effectively in English, in ways that differ from how your employees conduct their work.  For example, MAP can raise your skills in:

- important meetings with non-Japanese senior managers.

- sensitive negotiations, in English.

- presentations to senior managers, board members, trade shows - in English.

- interviewed by the trade press, in English.

MAP's coaches are themselves managers, with long experience.  They work with you confidentially, on your specific needs, issues and situations.


We start at where you are now, and help you move your performance up, phase by phase.  MAP’s experienced consultants - fully bilingual - do a comprehensive analysis of your present status and situation, leading to a set of phased action steps that facilitate your improvement in key English skills - and in your business results.     


We consider follow-up and follow-through to be essential to successful longterm improvement – until something new becomes habit and routine, it hasn’t been really implemented.  Have you been in a training program, seen a spike up in results for a few months, only to fade back?  Any actions taken must become long-term habits, and we will follow up to help you make that happen.


Our background and experience are solidly grounded in the basics of international business. You benefit from over 30 years of experience. We are especially strong in the Japan setting.


MAP focuses on core skills, methods and tasks. We are hands on. We don’t go for the easy, quick (and usually quick-disappearing) fix.


We’d be happy to discuss what improvements in your Executive English skills we can help you implement.  At no charge, of course.


The MAP philosophy


MAP approaches international business with these fundamental observations :


Daily work habits have great impact on results. Habits are not changed overnight – you and your staff have to keep at it, day in and day out, for months.


Simple steps, started now, can be more practical and implementable than radical changes or one-time seminars. Ongoing follow-up is needed for the habits to take root and not fade away. What gets measured gets done.


You must focus on the basics of the processes. Methods and skills must be clear, structured, repeatable, understandable.  Your methods must be matched with the short and long term strategic goals of your company, with the business processes of your company, your customers, and your industry.


We can stop by to discuss your situation, goals and frustrations. You can reach Dan Harris, principal, at the phone and email below.
