Working with the Americans

Working closely with the Americans, American clients or colleagues or business partners in the United States of America? Will your company be taken over by an American party or will it merge? Do you regularly deal with outsourcing projects? Then you may have experienced cultural differences.

These situations can affect your way of working, communicating and managing. Knowledge of the social background, business etiquette and everyday manners of American partners and colleagues helps to remove uncertainties. More important is the application of this knowledge; teaching skills and increasing adaptability to read and understand each other better.
