Open Workshop for Cross-Cultural Understanding With Japan

Organised by Europe-Japan Dynamics and the Swiss-Japanese Chamber of Commerce (SJCC)

Are these your problems?

  • “The Japanese decision-making process is so mysterious!”
  • “I don’t know if I’m interacting well with my Japanese colleagues.”
  • “Why do the Japanese always do things in their own way?”
  • “How can I say ‘No’ to my Japanese customers without offending them?”
  • “Japanese customers don’t complain when they are not satisfied with our service, but they just never come back to us.”

If you say “Yes!” to one of the problems above, this workshop is for you.

The workshop will enable you to learn about the internal drivers of your Japanese business partners and colleagues.

Topics of the Workshop:

  • Why is culture in business so important?
  • The trap of “cultural bias”
  • Major factors underlying Japanese business culture
  • Five clues to increase productivity in working with the Japanese
  • Your personal action plan
