Chinese Cultural Consulting Services:
I offer my services to small and medium-sized companies or individuals who need to engage with their counterparts in China. We can do it either virtually or face-to-face (for business or pleasure, maybe even both at the same time–my favorite). If you feel you’re not quite in control or even perplexed, it’s time we have a talk.
I can help you with the following services:
- The wall comes down around the globe now (despite the fact some people would try to do the opposite). To succeed in today’s global economy or travel and work comfortably in China, sharpening your cultural agility is a prerequisite. But what does it take to achieve this?
- It’s not about race or ethnicity, but the sense of cultural belonging that makes people different. However, you can attain it and it’s well worth going for.
- Technology and media have bridged the gap between the Chinese and American cultures, bringing the two countries closer than ever. Yet, for many people, their cultural subconscious acts like the Pacific to keep us apart. How do we overcome this and succeed in both cultures?
- To recognize different cultural behaviors is one thing; to understand and then to respond to it favorably is entirely another. Some people could choose to stumble through it while scratching their heads along the way. Or you can have an insider on your team until you feel comfortable while enjoying the process.
- To grasp the above, you need a better handle on the unique characteristics of the Chinese people, who make up one-fifth of the world’s population, gain insight into the way Chinese behave.
How We Get ‘Services’ Started:
After we get to know each other through initial contact, I will answer your questions and address your specific concerns. These may include personal (starting from booking your round-trip tickets and anything in between), business, cultural, social, food, and lifestyle differences across different parts of China. The goal is to boost your cross-cultural mental finesse and knowledge for a successful adjustment to the Chinese way.
We can do it via teleconferences, emails, onsite visit (one-on-one or in group settings), even travel to China together–based on the need of the assignment.
In my mind, it’s not about the money anymore (though that helps for keeping score). It’s about enriching well-being: mine as well as others by crossing cultures together and seeing another world through their lenses.
Initial contact (which may take more than one) is completely free, and with pleasure, until we both see the need for more specific services or we just remain in touch.
Depending on the complexity of the services or the nature of the project (individual coaching or business project consulting), my goal is to cultivate an enlightening and enjoyable experience for all of us, even if we don’t get to work together for the time being. Surprisingly reasonable compensation is due only when the objectives are achieved.
