Project Description

Understanding The Australian Business Mindset

Investing or doing business with Australians can be confusing for foreigners unfamiliar with deep-rooted Aussie cultural attitudes towards equality, entitlement and the ‘tall poppy syndrome’. Your well-intentioned business practices and communication styles could be misinterpreted by Australians if you’re unaware of the Australian business mindset.

This global business program provides foreigners with cultural insights critical for winning over and influencing colleagues, clients and stakeholders in Australia.

  • Cross-cultural communication: when to speak, when to be silent, and how to interpret non-verbal cues
  • Expectations around building and maintaining relationships
