This former astronaut shares what’s key to building strong, effective teams

Soichi Noguchi is a former astronaut with the Japanese space agency JAXA who has flown to space not once but 3 times. He’ll talk about the unique training these astronauts undergo - and the special lessons these trainings can teach any team about tapping each individual's expertise and what's needed to be a great leader and a great follower. He has since worked in a number of capacities, including as a professor at the University of Tokyo and an executive fellow at the Institute for International Socio-Economic Studies. He’ll share what he’s focused on now - and how space can help us better live on Earth.
