From Backpacker to CEO: A Story of Leadership & Playing to Your Strengths

Nov 22, 2023 | 40m

Once upon a time, a young Canadian man with a sense of adventure, books a one way ticket to Japan, with a red backpack and nowhere to stay. He ends up sleeping on a park bench. 30+ years later and he’s still in Japan, by way of Singapore and India, but he’s a long way from the park bench. He’s now the Japan Chairman and CEO of Randstad, the worlds largest talent company. Along the way he’s learned a thing or two about good leadership, teamwork and the important of self awareness. He’s also experienced moments of self doubt along the way, and he shares these stories on this weeks episode of Tiger Therapy.
