Germany Business Training

Get fit to work successfully in German culture

Living and working in Germany can be difficult and disorientating. Particularly, business communication often requires us to deal with uniquely German specific behaviour. Effective training in German communication and working styles is vital to live and work successfully in Germany. Why are Germans generally so direct, and how does this affect business? When may I use their first names? How should I react to criticism? What do I need to take into account while negotiating and project-planning with Germans? In this training, also you receive hands-on information to successfully live and work in Germany.
