It is not uncommon today for a start-up to be founded by people from different cultures and regions in the world. However, a business is not conducted in an identical fashion from culture to culture. Some cultures are more hierarchical while others have flatter social structures. At work, the relationship between an employee and a boss is important as one culture may encourage open dialogue — even criticism of a superior by an underling — while in another, it would be unacceptable.
Furthermore, whenever a business — even a small one — wants to develop internationally and sell its products or services beyond national frontiers, then soon or later, the deciders will have to hire and rely on on-site/local teams in the target countries that will support them.
Yes, cross-culture is becoming increasingly important as the success of a business depends upon the smooth interaction of all stakeholders from different cultures and regions. Larger companies rely on the expertise of cross-cultural coaches. Not only because they can afford it, but primarily because they know that cross cultural management and communication are vital for them. What gets you to “yes” in one culture gets you to “no” in another.
On December 5th, a couple of members of Paris for Her's Community, i.e. women start-up founders, entrepreneurs, expats from around the world, will introduce their venture and team, and explain us how they address that cross-cultural challenge in their daily work.
The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.
Join us and share with us your own experiences.
