Miwa Okada

Interested in languages since childhood, Miwa spent about five years in Europe at the age of 20, including language studies abroad. In 2019, back in Japan, she learned about active listening and realized that deep mutual understanding can be created by putting aside one’s own values and listening to others. She is deepening her listening skills on a daily basis. She currently works as an industrial consultant and is in charge of improving communication in companies.

Working with more than 1,000 people from 80 countries for about 10 years, I have realized that in the end we are all human despite cultural differences. All it takes to communicate better is the desire to understand each other.
