Business Samurai

Uncategorized Nov 12, 2019


I love watching Samurai movies; especially those that capture the mood of Japanese culture during the 16th and 17th centuries.  

I'm also a fan of Akira Kurosawa (Films: RAN, Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, and Rashomon). Kurosawa has a way of exploring and revealing the bushido of the Samurai of that time period.

Bushido is a moral code of honor developed by the Japanese samurai that centers around eight principles:

  1. Justice
  2. Courage
  3. Benevolence
  4. Politeness
  5. Honesty
  6. Honor
  7. Loyalty
  8. Character 

These principles should be universal in any culture, more specifically, a business culture. 

A real leader is one who embodies the 8 principles of bushido and is able to institutionalize them into their organization. That is the essence of a true business samurai.
