What is the Harada Method

The Harada Method is a method for personal development and is a fundament for reaching your personal and/or professional goals or dreams. Besides a method, it is also a philosophy with a warm heart. Connection with the other, with the environment, is a basic element, which also contributes to a better, more meaningful world. It aims to make individuals “self-reliant”. A term that is so much richer in English, and for which at least four descriptions are necessary in other languages: self-conscious, independent, self-assured, self-management, etc. Self-reliance is the ability of each individual to become so good at something, that he/she becomes unique and irreplaceable. The Harada method is regarded as the world’s best day-to-day management system and as the only well-substantiated method of self-management (send an email to Jim@4DLean.com for the MAP, an overview of all best practices worldwide).

Did you know that the percentage of motivated employees in Italy is only 14% (Gallup study)? If you calculate that the difference in efficiency between a motivated and an unmotivated employee is 45%, it does not need much explaining that companies also show a lot of interest in this method. Organizations that find the wellbeing of their employees important, that will (continue) to invest in the personal development and motivation of their employees see it as a win-win situation, that quickly becomes visible in the company results.

The method is therefore about personal development and hands you a concrete roadmap for realizing any personal, team or company goal. Moreover, self-realization is all the way at the top of the needs ladder. The realization of goals gives the highest human satisfaction and leads to personal happiness (Maslov). Since happy employees perform better, everybody fares well. That is why the method is also called “the human side of Lean”, although the method is also perfectly applicable without the Lean framework. Smart coaches and organizations with a progressive HR department consciously choose “the method of exponential progress and involvement”. By the way, it is also the proactive move against bore-outs or burn-outs.

The Harada method is suitable for:

  • Individuals, everyone with a dream and/or goal
  • Company & team results
  • Coaches
  • Supervisors
  • Employees (from junior to senior)
  • Personal development
