Communication in China
Good communication is half the job. So the importance of smooth communication with China cannot be underestimated. That’s because communication is more than just words.
Communication is also about traditions and customs in discussions, for instance. After all there are plenty of things to watch out for when entering into dialogue with another culture. What role do you take, and how can you achieve your objective without putting the relationship with your discussion partner at risk? One notable difference is that not losing face plays a huge role in Chinese communication.
There are of course plenty of ‘social rules’, but you can learn communication. Coolen China has some fifteen years of experience in communicating with China, and will advise you on these social rules. Experience has also taught us that flexibility is perceived differently in the West than in China. Having a Chinese communicating with another Chinese, ideally from the same region, produces significant trust and understanding. This process is facilitated by Coolen China.
