Living and Working in India

Intercultural training for Westerners moving to India

Increasing numbers of German companies are doing business in India. However, for many Westerners, communicating with Indians can be challenging and confusing. Our India-focused training gives you the knowledge and tools for success when interacting with your Indian contacts.

Cross-cultural collaboration between India and Germany is increasing and business opportunities are varied and exciting. However, Germans who do business in India can often find themselves facing numerous challenges, whether in meeting deadlines, leading meetings, or sometimes even getting a straight answer. Sometimes the differences can seem unsurmountable and overwhelming.

BAMIK’s course Living and Working in India will help you to understand the cultural differences that underpin these behavioral differences. This awareness will enable you to navigate Indian business culture and avoid the kind of culture shock that can be fatal to many business enterprises. Understanding the differences in communication styles and attitudes to time, interpersonal relationships and hierarchies will allow you to build strategies that enable you to conduct business in India smoothly and without misunderstandings.

This course was designed for the specific German-Indian perspective and helps you to develop the tools to make sense of this remarkable country and develop strategies to successfully conduct business there. It provides you with the background knowledge and understanding of Indian culture to better adapt and understand your colleagues and business con-tacts.
