Working with Norwegians

Working with Norwegians

Would you play chess or poker without learning the rules of the game first? Dealing with Norwegians without understanding the Norwegian way may be quite like playing chess or poker without knowing the rules. Norwegian workplaces are driven by a set of rules which are very different from those in other western cultures, leading to confusion and misunderstandings. Working with Norwegians explains in a clear and accessible way why they think and act as they do and what they expect. The book engages the readers in reflection upon social norms and values and what is considered acceptable behaviour in Norway. The chapters have tests to measure the cultural understanding and there is a section of real life exercises with solutions and explanations. This is the guide to understanding Norwegians in the workplace and their social life which will make you a more informed and confident colleague, business partner and friend. With enhanced awareness and confidence you should be more relaxed, have fun, and focus on building lasting, rewarding relationships. This guide should also be of interest to Norwegian readers who want to learn what members of other cultures sometimes find hard to deal with in their workplaces and social life. This book is also available in Norwegian with the title Kunsten å arbeide med nordmenn.
