Culture Clash!
It takes every kind of people to make the world go round (Robert Palmer)

Different cultures.... the variety of nationalities, customs, colours, rituals, foods that we encounter - maybe daily ... Intriguing and fascinating to say the least!

Can you recall a personal experience when it comes to cultural differences? Have you ever noticed, especially in communications, how we seem to shift our focus on to how these differences ‘stand in our way’. Shouldn’t the question be: how to make those differences work to our mutual advantage?!

Imagine a new environment where you work and live after moving abroad. There are many ways to communicate, depending on your culture of origin. This affects management, leadership, cooperation with colleagues, etc. Cultural differences often surface for example when it comes to: hierarchy, decision making, conflict resolution, teamwork, conducting meetings, etc.

Expat Dynamixz helps others to look at the world from a different angle – or as we call it: through different eyes. It is about perceiving another person’s reality. And subsequently finding a way to cope, and to achieve effective communications and cooperation. Making the connection in work and daily life.
