What is fundamental to do successful business in Germany? How do these Germans tick? What motivates them to ask endless questions? What are their reasons to put their whole life into contract, fixing every single imponderability on paper? Are there any things Germans expect their foreign counterparts to change? Which ones? And finally: What are the soft spots of these famous stoic Teutons? This open workshop will try to answer these questions. We are going to walk into the German mind, into these people’s interpretations of life and their codes of behaviour – in business as well as in private relationships.
