Develop your intercultural competence and get to know Japanese business culture better!
In the global business environment, understanding and dealing with cultural differences is crucial for the success of interpersonal communication. Experience shows that ignoring a multitude of small but subtle differences in business practice often strains the nerves and budgets of even experienced foreign entrepreneurs.
Immerse yourself in the mindset of your Japanese business partners. Japan still exerts a mystical attraction to visitors and business travellers. The language and writing, the layout of the cities and the landscape, as well as the manners are noticeably different and foreign; the likelihood of behaving confidently and correctly is therefore rather low in the initial phase of the business relationship. Increase your effectiveness and appearance in the Japanese environment with sound knowledge of the country and its people and optimise your cooperation with Japanese regions, teams and business partners.
Our training addresses the intangible and subtle differences between people from different cultures. Afterwards, you will be optimally prepared to enter into conflict-free and successful business relationships with Japanese business partners and learn to appreciate the value of cultural differences.
