Intercultural Training India


Your Situation

Do you work closely with Indian workers, customers or suppliers. Are you active in German-Indian projects, provide local service or customer service in India? Do you ever encounter puzzling behaviors or situations from your Indian counterparts? How familiar are you with the following?:

  • Why is there no continuity at work? First nothing happens, then, in the last minute, everything gets done.
  • Why is it so difficult to implement decisions? Although you conduct meetings, find solutions with your Indian counterparts, you notice that the agreed course of action is not being maintained.
  • You are used to examining the results at the end of a process. However, these results are unfortunately far from the given parameters. How much control and monitoring is expected of you?
