Working Internationally

International Culture and Working Masterclass

To work successfully internationally it is essential to do so much more than learn the  language.  There are many topics to understand, accept and adapt to.

We can also have the challenge of taking on entirely new concepts that we never knew existed as different countries think, work, believe and feel differently on a whole range of topics…

Understanding the culture and way of working in other countries is fundamental to a good and successful working relationship. You need to understand and adapt to succeed. Interaction can be difficult not because of skills (or lack of) but because of a different way of thinking and acting! When the concept of an idea or project is totally unfamiliar, strange and never before heard of, it can make for serious distrust and dislike.

Just taking the time and making the effort to learn about the other countries values, beliefs, priorities and vision on work, life and respect can make all the difference to personal, professional and business relationships. It can be the deal breaker or the deal maker – which would you prefer?
