As part of my new mission in the Purchasing Department, I had to set up a negotiation strategy with our international partners. This tailor-made training allowed me to take a step back from my missions and to specifically adapt, thanks to the CultureConnector tool, my challenges according to the cultures of each one.

For a company or organisation, developing internationally involves duplicating all its processes and its management methods in every country and adapting them to local cultures. In doing this, they must also respect common values, and the fundamental elements of the business culture or the organisation. Expertise, know-how and soft skills are required in abundance: for developing the strategy, supporting change, communicating, and managing teams on a day-to-day basis... Intercultural communication doesn't just come naturally; it has to be learned. To be able to speak to employees from a different culture effectively, you need to understand their workplace culture and practices. Similarly, people across the globe do not negotiate in the same way. Many Westerners have failed to reach business agreements with partners in China or Japan because they had not familiarised themselves with Asian cultures. Failure to fully understand the concept of politeness in China, which is based on respect and face, means you'll be unaware of the negotiation techniques to employ with Chinese people!

For a company or an organization to develop internationally implies duplicating all its processes and management methods in each country by adapting them to local cultures. All this while respecting common values, the foundation of the company or organization's culture. Many areas of expertise, know-how and interpersonal skills must be developed: strategy development, change management, communication, day-to-day team management, etc. Intercultural communication is not innate, it must be learned. In order to effectively address employees from a different culture, you need to know their culture and its uses in the professional world. Also, people do not negotiate in the same way everywhere on the planet. Many Westerners, unprepared for Asian cultures, have not succeeded in concluding commercial agreements with partners in China or in the Land of the Rising Sun. Indeed, not mastering the codes of Chinese politeness, based on respect and Face, means ignoring the mechanisms of negotiation with the Chinese!
