Cross-Cultural Business Etiquette

Growing globalisation has made it even more evident that cultural differences are a key factor in international business relations, an element that we cannot absolutely ignore for success.

Assumptions and expectations often vary from one country to another and from one culture to another (from communication to the way of maintaining relationships, from a sense of humour to the value of a contract).

It is necessary to acquire fundamental knowledge about what is "normal" in other countries in order to be able to work successfully in an increasingly globalised world.​ Therefore, we need to have information in order not to make mistakes, as well as know the correct sources of information.

📬Good news! You can find out the answer and food for thought through the help of a visual design thinking tool to support you in designing your career path.
