I thought I was "the" manager; they were looking for as I have already been working for 3-4 years when they started to extend the department during my first job at a Japanese company. Unfortunately they hired somebody else , not me. I didn't understand why that was so until I found out that seniority was important in this context. When you are 27, you are not senior enough. So my biggest learning from this experience was that it was necessary to understand the culture first.
Everything is continuously changing. People, organisations and the world. I always mention the importance of change in the organisations I work with. I learned from this experience that organisations or people do not change based on what they are told. For them to change, they have to feel the need for change. Change doesn't start without a need.
No matter what our status is, we all need to be motivated, thanked and be expressed gratitude for things we do for people.

In the beginning of my career I had to manage a project which can only be completed by my masters.. At that time, the worry I had for my company as well as for the people I will work with truly set an obstacle in front of me.Then I asked myself, what was my obstacle? I learned that I shouldn't be afraid of experiencing. And I tell you as well, don't be afraid to experience.

While assessing organizations, we must prepare well and detailed. However, before entering into details, we must not forget to ask the simple questions first, to make sure we understand the institution well...
The ultimate responsible of the mistakes made by the team is the executive himself. Executives must learn from mistakes and take necessary measures immediately for the mistake not to be repeated again. In short, making a mistake provides us a continuous learning experience. If we make mistakes, that means we are indeed working.
