Why business is like baseball, according to this Japanese CEO
Japan has won the World Baseball Classic 3 times, so their strategy must be effective.
Practice makes perfect when it comes to sports.
Yoshitake Saito is the president and CEO at Evident Corp. He said that people should train like baseball players.
"How much time do they devote to the sport and the game?" Only 20%," Saito said to CNBC's My Biggest Lessons.
Saito said, "The remaining 80% are self-training themselves." "This is the same for us as professionals and employees."
He stated, "We must self-invest more."
Saito stated that this is one of the most important lessons that he has ever learned. The strategy works, as evidenced by Japan's third World Baseball Classic title.
