Different Decision Making Process

Business people arrive at decisions differently in various cultures and countries.

In the U.S., individuals have more autonomy, managers solicit input from a team, choose a direction quickly and make adjustments as the project moves forward.

In China, decisions are made slower, a group decision is a common practice, but the "boss" has the final say.

In Japan, decisions tend to be made in informal one-on-one discussions before a formal group meeting.

In France, debate and confrontation are necessary elements of any decision-making process.

In Sweden, teams learn to make decisions through lengthy consensus building, which can span many meetings but eventually leads to strong buy-in and rapid implementation.

Guidelines for Multicultural Collaboration

  • Learn from generalizations about other cultures, but don't use those generalizations to stereotype. Use them rather to understand better and appreciate other multifaceted human beings.

  • Practice, practice, practice.

  • Don't assume that yours is the only right way to communicate. Keep questioning your assumptions about the "right way" to communicate.

  • Communicate trust and build rapport by talking in your client's preferred mode.

  • Search for ways to make the communication work, rather than searching for who should receive the blame for the breakdown.

  • Listen actively and empathetically. Try to put yourself in the other person's shoes.

  • Honor others' opinions about what is going on.

  • Suspend judgment, and try to look at the situation as an outsider.

  • Honest acknowledgment of the mistreatment that has taken place on the basis of cultural difference is vital for effective communication. Use this as an opportunity to develop trust.

  • Awareness of current power imbalances is necessary for mutual understanding and working together.

  • Remember that cultural norms may not apply to the behavior of any particular individual. We are all more complicated than any cultural norm could suggest.
