The Heart of Management

Emphasize Partnership

Since its founding, Kyocera has based its operations on groups of coworkers who understand and trust one another. Rather than a vertical relationship of managers to workers, employees are bound by lateral partnerships, working toward the same goals and thereby realizing their individual dreams.

I credit our success to the fact that our operation is based on employees sharing the same aspirations and mindset, instead of the more common vertical relationship of power and authority.

This has been possible only because of the solidarity of associates who understand and trust one another as human beings.
