Former Honeywell executive Carl Nomura pens guide to business success

Nomura ignores all the set backs he could have blamed for living a rough life and provides a road map for senior executives and department heads to follow in his footsteps and create a flourishing work environment for their employees.

After 92 years of life, someone normally accumulates a sizeable amount of worldly wisdom, especially one heading up a large division at a global science and technology giant like Honeywell Inc.

Author and former Honeywell executive, Carl Nomura, spent 33 years honing his business expertise, and more than 90 years defeating the odds in both his personal and professional lives.

The son of immigrant Japanese American parents, his family struggled to survive growing up. When World War II started, the Nomura family was relocated to an internment camp in California. Nomura decided to become a migratory farm laborer to escape the humiliation of the internment camp, and was later drafted into the Army.

In his book, “Business Success With Less Stress,” Nomura ignores all the set backs he could have blamed for living a rough life and provides a road map for senior executives and department heads to follow in his footsteps and create a flourishing work environment for their employees.

“Business Success With Less Stress” touches on the mystique of management, provides tips on easily meeting financial goals and how to hire winners.

“To be successful, you have to do the right things for the right reasons at the right time,” Nomura said. “If you don’t have good employees, you don’t have much.”
