Making Ho-Me-I-Ku a global education standard

  3. And, the final vision is to include "Ho-Me-I-Ku" as one of the education policies for the people on this planet.

It's nice to see you, everyone. I'm Kunio Hara of Ho-Me-I-Ku foundation. Ho-Me-I-Ku is an educational method I made. Ho-Me-I-Ku is a means to train people by praising,

and this educational method can maximize one's potential.

In addition, any personal relationship from adults to children can be improved under this method.

There are two “Ho-Me-I-Ku” methods to learn.

One is to praise yourself to improve your self-esteem.

The other is to praise others and to find their invaluable strengths.

Everyone can tell their good points by praising themselves.

In addition, everyone can understand what they should do to realize their dreams.

You can believe that your future is better. Praising your partner not only maximize their potential but also improve your relationship with your partner. We have made the

standard to praise to make more profit and provide the training for leaders in the companies. As a result,

about 265 companies have taken our service. Moreover, elementary schools, nursery schools, medical corporations, and the Self‐Defense Forces are taking our service.

Now, five hundred thousand people in ten countries learn Ho-Me-I-Ku.
