Cross Culture Communication
How do you do business with Italians?
In European countries in general and Italy in particular, there is a strong sense of cultural pride and an interpersonal and business etiquette ,the understanding of which can often make the difference between the success or failure of a meeting.
People tend to do business and better communicate with those who are culturally similar , or who are sensitive to the nuance of their culture.
There are many aspects to good cross-culture communication, ranging from body language and handshakes, through how one dresses, to the rules of etiquette and appropriate topics of conversation.
International transactions or long-term partnerships can easily fail because of ineffective intercultural communication and understanding, and I am here to help you understand what to do, and what not to do, in order to your interactions succeed.
In my counseling and workshops, you will get all the tools for how to properly conduct yourself when meeting with Italians .
In addition, I will introduce you to the various dress codes ,customs and etiquette of Europeans. The understanding of which will give you a distinct advantage during negotiations, when developing international business relationships and in ultimately achieving your business goals vis-a-vis Europe.
I believe that having a deep knowledge of the history and rationale behind the Italian business culture and modes of business conduct will enable you to have a better understanding of your Italian counterparts and to act more naturally and comfortably in their company, in turn creating a true camaraderie and resulting in better business.
