Enhancing Quality of Leadership among individuals
and in the organization
The WAKE UP approach is based on coaching through a series of dialogues where trust is placed in the inherent potential of individuals and organizations.
“What do you really want to do?”
“What’s possible within ourselves?”
Asking these essential questions, we support individuals and organizations to take actions toward their transformation, enhancing Quality of Leadership.
Opportunity to ensure awareness and behavior that are required as a leader
I had just been promoted to executive manager and my bosses told me that I was now solely responsible for overseeing my organization.They said that I needed to be conscious of the fact that my team members are always observing me, and to gain self-awareness of how I should behave to contribute to the management of the organization.Although I belong to the IPR & Licensing Division, I hadn’t studied intellectual property rights and laws at college, so I always feel weak in this area. I was worried about how to lead a specialist team that handles intellectual property rights, what kind of messages I should deliver, and what actions I should take.Immediately after being promoted to executive manager, I was given a mission to push through a project that would significantly reform the organization both inside and outside Japan. I had a strong desire to overcome these concerns and move forward.For this reason, I had an expectation that the coaching opportunity would give me a hint on how to behave and how I should change.
Thank you for visiting the WAKE UP website. In this site, we would like to introduce our mission, what we are aiming for, and what we do.
WAKE UP’s origins date back to the establishment of CTI Japan in 2000. It began with Hidetake Enomoto’s desire to offer CTI’s Co-Active Coaching® courses in Japan.
Takeshi Shimamura took over from Enomoto. When Shimamura took over, his desire was to offer CTI’s Co-Active Leadership® program in Japan. And that desire was realized in 2006.
President & CEO,

How people and organizations work best from the viewpoint of Happiness Studies
I want all people to be happy.I have been doing research in happiness studies because I want all people to be happy.A multivariate analysis study that we carried out indicated that there are four factors of happiness in psychological well-being.These are: the “let’s do it” factor (self-realization and growth), the “gratitude” factor (connection and gratitude), the “it’ll be ok” factor (positivity and optimism), and the “this is who I am” factor (personal autonomy and self-expression).
