Cultural Training

Doing business in a foreign country 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? 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 Slovakia

The formalities and informalities; the how dyou dos and how dyou donts. 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.

Business etiquette is highly important when conducting business. In Slovakia business is generally very formal, although some of the younger generations tend to be less formal. Let your colleague determine the level of formality.

Having a firm handshake shows confident, as does smiling and eye contact. Do not shake hands with a woman until she has extended her hand first. When using someones name, use their academic title and surname. It is considered rude to use someones first name unless you are family and friends. Even in a close business relationship first names are rarely used.

Building relationships in Slovakia are viewed as more important than covering everything on an agenda of a meeting. They feel getting to know you will build trust and respect. Expect some small talk in meeting. Arrange appointments in advance. Take business cards that have English on one side and Slovak on the other. Meetings are conducted by the most senior person there. Business can take time as they get to know you but you will find this type of business etiquette will build long lasting business relationships.

Dress in a smart, conservative manner. Body language, body posture and tonal delivery are important enhancements to the verbal message, adding emphasis or additional meaning to the words.

There are several key points to remember in cultural etiquette training and can be used throughout the world. Be well mannered, polite and respected of those in your company and you will help your business no end.
