Corporate Training

Purpose of the Program

Currently, the employee turnover rate is high, and many employees are just doing what they are instructed to do by their superiors.

The company wants to reduce the employee turnover rate, and also wants employees to become people who can think and act on their own. By doing so, the company wants employees to enjoy their work and to have confidence in themselves and a sense of responsibility for their work.

Through its overseas internship program, which has reached a total of 3,684 interns, Tabimusha, Inc. has trained people who are equipped with the Self-motivating Engine® (i.e., people who can think and create their own life by themselves). The corporate training program in Japan and abroad also achieved the same goal.

Our debuted training program is customized for employees in their first two or three years with the company, with the aim of fostering their autonomy and lowering the turnover rate by enhancing their ability to identify problems.

The Self-motivating Engine training program is not just about teaching know-how, but also about changing the people themselves. This can only be achieved by changing the essential being of the person, not through instruction only.

The 3E test (ability assessment test) can be conducted before and after the training to see how people have changed.

Keep asking for something meaningful.

Ask yourself questions and determine the nature of the problem.
Continue learning who you are and how you should do it.

If you fail, if you feel down.

Learn from it, get up again, and move forward.

Engine #7

Engine #12


Even when the situation makes me want to run away or give up but if you feel “I really want to do something”, then get it done as fully as possible.


Ask for help

After you understand that you have spent time and energy with others, you should also receive help for yourself and for something greater.


Classroom of the Future

Overall, primary and secondary education’s content is a way to remember things and see if that is correct or not, but I think that is required as an ability and it has become uncertainties at the present time. We don’t know what’s going to happen. We always think life is a model where you will work for a large or stable company and will work there forever in the future. But you won’t know when that company will collapse. And at that point, you will be faced with an experience that you have never had before and no one knows the right answer. What you need to do is find out what problems you are having and find the solution by yourself. How can you find the right solution? It becomes a question for everyone.

To achieve this, we have to analyze what the problem is and think logically about it. The use of that kind of thinking is becoming more and more important. The key to this is to talk with people overseas who have completely different cultures and values and to reach an agreement. Make a contract. In other cases, when we discuss things, we should not communicate in a sensual way, such as by saying, “You are Japanese, so you will understand” but rather we should understand what the other party is thinking and what values they have in mind before we persuade them. Originally, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) has been trying to promote independent, interactive, deep learning (active learning). I think that’s exactly what is consistent with this idea.

The cycle of Active Learning

Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) video summary – Active learning methods will be used in the future

We need to move away from the traditional cramming-type education and memorization-type education, and instead, we need “thinking-type education,” the ability to think on your own and find the answer by yourself.

We need to continue to work on and think about problems that have no right answers.

The instructor does not give the right answer but rather acts as a “facilitator” (someone who promotes growth). By asking questions and sometimes expressing their own honest opinions, they support the participants until they get their own answers.

Active Learning

“We are proud to be the number one provider of active learning in Japan, and we have accumulated a wealth of know-how through our overseas internships!”

How do you mount a Self-motivating Engine?

The most important thing is the mind (being) of the instructor. In order to avoid dependence on the instructor and to draw out the participants’ autonomy, it is important to maintain a co-worker-like relationship with the instructor, who supports the learning process.

The instructor does not give the “right” answer. Participants think for themselves and come up with their own “correct answer” through dialogue with others. The instructor uses coaching techniques by making the participants think more deeply about such things as “What do I need to do? Why do you think this is a good idea? Isn’t it possible to think like this? Isn’t this an option?” to promote the independence of them.

The instructor will give the necessary input to learn. Rather than leaving input out, the teacher will adjust the balance of input to a 50:50 ratio of input to output, which has been too input-oriented in the past.

We believe that active learning is not just a skill, it is a tool, and is strongly dependent on the mindset of the instructor. We believe that active learning is just a tool and that it is highly dependent on the mindset of the instructor.

At Tabimusha, we are proud to be the number one provider of active learning in Japan, and we have accumulated a wealth of know-how through our overseas internships.

This is just one part of our strength, but we have many instructors who are serious about bringing out the autonomy of the participants, not just letting them talk to each other. We are committed to the results because we have that much confidence.
