Japanese Workers Get word from on High: Drop Formality What does this mean? Why there are two prepositions in succession? Isn't this wrong? Why? :-)

It's not wrong. It's a fixed expression. 'From on high' means 'from heaven', or 'from a position of very high, remote authority'. So Japanese workers have been told by the people at the very top of the company to be less formal.

Two successive prepositions happens a LOT in English. ;)
