Stepping into India- A successful program on CULTURAL ASSIMILATION

Why do expatriates find #workinginIndia challenging? We recently conducted a learning journey to help a group of senior executives, moving into India, understand the subtle nuances of “India”.

Culture can be likened to an iceberg: what is visible (language, customs,dress..) is the tip of the iceberg. (Attitudes, beliefs, thought process…) is what is beneath the water and not immediately visible.

3 top #challenges that emerged while integrating into the Indian work ecosystem were:

1. Our indirect approach to communication

2. Meetings stretching way beyond the slotted time

3. Our inability to “say no” to those in authority

It was an interesting experience for us…looking at “ourselves” through the eyes of “others” !!!!
