Would you ever play chess without knowing the rules? Being in Norway without awareness of the cultural codes is like playing chess without knowing the rules, you might make mistakes.
“Working with Norwegians” is a course that will help you crack the hidden codes of Norwegian workplaces and social life. It explains how Norwegians think and act in different situations, both at the university, in a business setting and at home. It highlights typical scenarios in which cultural differences come to the surface, and you will learn what Norwegians expect from you.
The aim of this training is to make you more confident on how to behave in Norway and to reduce the risk of cultural misunderstandings. Typical feedback from these sessions is that misunderstandings and mistakes made in the past could have been avoided if they had participated earlier.
The course is conducted by Karin Ellis (CEO of Ellis Culture)
