9781118153390: Zennovation: An East-West Approach to Business Success

Combining the principles of Eastern and Western business practices for powerful success

As an entrepreneur, manager, and problem-solver, Tomio Taki has shared advice with businesspeople ranging from managers of mom-and-pops to high-powered executives from across the globe. The Innovation Instinct showcases the author's breadth of life experience and illustrates how the principles of Eastern and Western business practices can be meshed together as a powerful source for success. Lessons range from the benefits of asking the simple questions to the importance of establishing oneself and knowing when to go against the grain.

Tomio Taki has consulted for, financed, or directly managed both private and public companies on nearly every continent. He has been involved in ventures ranging from being the man behind Donna Karen New York to owning and operating private golf clubs around the world. In short, Taki's business and related successes are striking, having helped companies rise from the ashes of potential bankruptcy to streamlining and growing corporate giants. The wisdom he shares in The Innovation Instinct includes:

  • Language is less of an obstacle across borders; instead, cultural differences are what propel and vitiate communication among businesspersons
  • Certain fundamental aspects of business and life cross latitudinal and longitudinal lines

When businesspeople seek to understand the cultures of their counterparts, they will discover lasting success with their global business relationships.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Zennovation

"This is a great book by an enterprising Japanese entrepreneur, Tomio Taki. It is written in such a way as to give the reader insight into the Japanese culture as well as experience the tough decisions that people go through starting a business, no matter what part of the world you're in. This book can apply to anyone in any country—its message will clearly translate to readers in any language."
Karl Eller, Chairman and CEO, The Eller Company

"As the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Philadelphia University, with confidence I can say that reading this book underscores everything I believe about business and education."
Bill Whitmore, Chairman, President, and CEO, AlliedBarton Security Services

"He is the exact opposite of a typical business man. He is the most trusting, and the most trustworthy, person I know. He was my teacher."
The late Ricky Sasaki, President and CEO, Link Theory Holdings Co.

"He is a great follower, a team player, which enables him to be a great leader."
Marin Alsop, Music Director, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

"He is a symbol, an example of how best to combine disparate cultures into one personality. I always learn from him."
The late General Meir Amit, former head of Mossad and former chairman of Israel's Center for Special Studies
