Omoiyari is the Japanese principal of cherishing differences between oneself and others. It is a way of thinking and acting that aims for mutual understanding through examining otherís perspectives.
Differences between people can lead to miscommunication,
a lack of trust or even conflicts; however, differences can also be an opportunity to learn from each other and find new solutions.
Thinking and acting with omoiyari will enable you to use the full potential of diversity, both within and outside the organisation.
We have developed the Omoiyari Scan, an online tool that measures the perceived level of omoiyari in your team or organisation.
It indicates the organisational ability to support value creation from differences between people.
