Swedish Business Culture Workshop

350 kr Inc. VAT

Having problems understanding the signals when working in a Swedish environment? What are the unwritten rules that foreigners should keep in mind while doing business in Sweden? Are you intrigued by the cultural differences and how they shape the work life in Sweden?

Then this is the workshop for you!

Although Sweden represents a generally open culture, where colleagues address each other in a casual way.  there do exist some issues that are best avoided, particularly at the beginning of a job or relationship. Among the many things we will touch upon and navigate through, some examples are:

  • Swedes avoid arguing, especially with visitors. If a discussion appears to be turning into an argument, do not be offended if a Swede abruptly changes the subject.
  • Do not use a lot of superlatives when speaking. The Swedes are opposed to stretching the truth. The marks of rank or status are disliked.
  • Do not get too personal. Topics like family, income and personal background should be avoided before getting ver
  • The ‘lagom’ concept or mentality exists in Swedish business as well. Employees, and many employers, often focus on doing exactly what’s needed and doing it well, rather than doing unnecessary things.
