About the representative

Junko Fukaya



"Resilience" is the ability to recover from feelings and grow up through the experience of failure, so that you will not be dragged even if you are depressed due to failure or setback. We provide seminars, training, and coaching to spread resilience to as many people as possible.

I have worked in the IT industry for over 20 years.

Experienced as a programmer, system engineer (SE), consultant, manager, planning and development, manager in overseas management department. I think there were more failures than successes.

There were times when I was about to break my heart, such as system troubles and complaints, pressure to achieve my goals, failure in English, mental leave for my subordinates, and balancing childcare.

Each time, I accept the situation, change my mind, squeeze my wisdom, help others, and manage to overcome it. Originally, I was easily depressed and couldn't recover mentally forever, but as I overcame many trials, I suddenly became accustomed to not dragging.

Why is it that even a very talented person is not motivated because his heart is broken and he cannot exert his strength?

On the other hand, some people recover quickly even if they experience failure and move on to the next one immediately.

It is more useful to have each person's feelings and feelings, not to be smart and knowledgeable. Although knowledge and judgment can be replaced by computers, only humans can understand and handle emotions. I was drawn into a world I knew until then, and decided to change my direction to an analog world that is the exact opposite of IT, training and coaching using psychology and brain science. Through the experience of adversity, I will grow further. I spend my days thinking about resilience.

I want as many people as possible to shine. Even if it is difficult to see the future and you do not know what will happen, I hope that you will spend every day thinking that you are okay. To that end, I would like to increase resilience and help myself.
