OTTAWA – Success! We came out of our first softball game with a 17-6 (?) win. That was fun. I managed to get in three runs and even hit a double. Not too shabby for a first game. Unfortunately, our last game was canceled due to bad weather. It’s bloody cold here this week. I think it was 8 degrees C this morning. Not what I would expect on the last day of May. I’m putting together a presentation for the new JETs leaving Ottawa this summer on the Japanese workplace environment. Thought that the Japan Times would have some interesting articles to rummage through. I didn’t have to go very far before coming across an article on Trey Hillman, former manager of the Nippon Ham Fighters. You can see the classic Japanese workplace values come through in the story. i.e. patience, relationships, saving face, following form etc.
It’s worth a quick read: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/sb20090531j2.html
