Living a “Double Life” in Germany and the U.S. – Dealing with Cultural Disparities in the German and US Workplace
May 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT
Culture matters! Failed international projects or mergers have cost billions because the players were not aware of their cultural differences. This even applies to cultures that seem, at first sight, very similar to the United States and Germany. In this presentation, you will learn specifically how cultural factors affect our communications and relationships at work between Germans and US Americans. Even if you’ve lived a ‘double life’ in both cultures for years, this deeper look at our mutual perceptions as well as differences in work style and corporate culture may be useful.
– Cultural Perceptions
What do Germans think of Americans? What do Americans think of the Germans? What do we think about ourselves?
– How to build profitable business relationships
Comparing corporate work styles between the US and Germany; communication style differences; business planning differences
– American and German approaches to diversity in the workplace
Relevance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in both countries; hat matters in DEI; different perceptions of diversity; German reactions to current events in the U.S. and their effect on business
