  • Cultural Differences Between Japan and the United States in Uses of "Apology" and "Thank You" in Favor Asking Messages

    Hye Eun Lee, Hee Sun Park, Tatsuya Imai, Daniel Dolan

    JOURNAL OF LANGUAGE AND SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY   31 ( 3 ) 263 - 289  2012.09

     View Summary

    Three studies investigated whether apologies and thanks are used differently when asking favors in the United States and Japan and examined whether their use makes a favor asking message less face-threatening. In Study 1, participants (N = 152) composed an email message for a favor asking situation. Next, participants in Study 2 (N = 634) and Study 3 (N = 417) completed one of four versions of a questionnaire regarding a prototype of an email message. Results showed that (a) more Japanese included apologies in their messages while more Americans used thanks and (b) Japanese considered apologies to reduce some face threats while Americans did not consider thanks to reduce face threats. Implications and future research directions are discussed.

Specific Research 【 display / non-display

  • Investigate latest corporate governance models to see if Japanese listed companies can use some of those ideas to improve corporate governance.

    2013  

     View Summary

    I investigated the latest corporate governance theories and practical models through personal interviews with corporate governance experts at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and Stanford University Center for Leadership Development and Research. The purpose of this research was to attempt to develop corporate governance guidelines that might fit the needs of listed companies in Japan. My investigation included a one-week period of interviews with corporate governance experts and detailed comparisons of corporate governance models from other countries. As a result of my investigation I have discovered some significant possibilities for increasing global confidence in corporate governance in Japan. I plan to publish the outcome of my research as a paper of high quality that will be submitted to a peer-reviewed academic journal in the future.
