How would you start your day when you hear a colleague commenting on your work saying that it is “Not so good”? or “It could be better”? Or if they said, “WOW AWESOME” for mediocre work? What’s really interesting is that working in a multi-cultural business environment, neither one of these comments many not be so dramatic in reality once you understand where they are coming from.
As a business coach, offering management and strategic planning consultancy, I can tell you that in business it is extremely important to be culturally aware. As you know, to be aware represents the foundation of any communication as well as any successful partnership. When we stand back, we become aware of other’s cultural values, perceptions and beliefs. And this contributes to a healthier business environment overall.
Throughout my experience in management consulting and training in Vancouver BC, Canada, USA, Mexico, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, and Indonesia, and with over 4000 people of 100 plus cultural backgrounds, I have tailored our services so as to meet cultural diversity and to shape everyone’s behavior in such a way that each of us will be able to get integrated faster in any cultural environment sooner rather than later.
As a Master NLP and Humanistic Neuro-Linguistic Psychology Practitioner, as well as after years of experience as a business consultant, working with entrepreneurs and managers alike, I have understood that above any type of culture, the first principle that anyone should follow in business and in life is respect. When you enter into a new community, the most important thing is not to show your brilliant ideas, but to shut up and listen to the local community and learn from them. After that, you will see how brilliant your initial ideas really are and you will know exactly what you have to do next.
