Empowering Leadership

Oct 4, 2021

If YKK sounds familiar, but you're not quite sure where you've seen it, you're not alone. YKK is the Japanese company that makes many of the world's zippers that you might find right now in the pants you're wearing.

Today's guest on Empowering Leadership is Jessica Cork, who has spent time working in the Japanese Consulate before transitioning to the private sector and working with YKK.

Jessica talks to host Doug McVadon about her affinity towards Japanese culture growing up, living in working in Japan, and how the hallmarks of Japanese social culture impact business in ways that are very different from what most Americans are accustomed to.
