Cultural Training in Greece
Doing business in Greece isn't like going on holiday: don't expect to get by with knowledge of a few words, and don't assume business is conducted in the same way universally.
But how can you properly prepare to do business in Greece? There are many cultural training companies and schools which can help you. They offer cross-cultural grounding, bridging the translatory and protocolic gaps between nations and people.
Providing guidance in all areas of business and sociality, these cultural training companies are experts when it comes to negotiation training; management training; and diversity training. All training, of course, can be country-specific.
Tutorials can take many forms, so investigate which will be right for you and, if necessary, your employees.
Business Etiquette in Greece
The formalities and informalities; the how d'you dos and how d'you don'ts. Etiquette is one of the foundations of modern civilisation, and business is no exception. A business blunder, in some countries, could mean the difference between a deal and disrepute. Again, its all about culture if not adopting, at least recognising and respecting the traditions and protocols of a people.
When greeting some in business shake them by the hand, smile and maintain eye contact. Arrange your appointment in advance by letter and confirm the day before the meeting. Avoid making appointments between 1pm and 3pm as most people will be out to lunch. First meetings are about getting to know you, second meetings are about developing trust and mutual respect and third meeting offer a time for business to begin.
Do not expect the meeting to stay within an agenda as often several people talk at once, there will be small talk and imposing a deadline on reaching a decision may end the negotiations. Greeks are skilled negotiators so look forward to some bartering.
Any correspondence, literature and business cards should be in both English and Greek and you may want a translator.
Dress smart and conservatively. Be well mannered and polite and show respect.
