Who are the Swiss, why are they the way they are – and how to best work with them!
What is culture, why is it important and what influence does it have on our business environment – in particular when working, collaborating and negotiating with Swiss counterparts?
In this workshop, participants identify in an entertaining way what they know (and don’t know!) about the Swiss culture. Through an examination of both similarities and differences between your own and the Swiss culture, participants prepare for real-life cross-cultural encounters with Swiss clients, colleagues and partners. One of the goals is to avoid cultural conflicts and misunderstandings which arise when individuals with opposing values come into contact.
Through several practical activities and many real-life examples we look at the different cross-cultural dimensions and explore contrasting values between the participants own cultural and the Swiss values. The workshop will help you identify some of the areas in which you need and want to find out more about the Swiss culture.
