Negotiating with Chinese Build trust slowly and incrementally Upheavals of past century have undermined trust-based system Focus on long-term mutual benefits and step-by-step growth Build personal connections at all levels China is a big country with overlapping authority centers Favors received must be reciprocated Respect for seniority A junior speaking out in front of a senior is considered quite rude Be precise on technical issues Chinese pay close attention to details; errors destroy trust Check for understanding and problems Great concern for face means an unwillingness to speak out Slide 12 Copyright © 2012 by Melanie Billings-Yun.
Negotiating with Thais Build your credibility Thais value seniority, luxury and a calm, professional demeanor Be polite in a ‘Thai’ way If Thais give you a compliment, deny it and compliment back Speak gently and try to avoid direct confrontation Prefer indirect communication style Dislike negative speech therefore difficult to get honest feedback Do not like detailed contracts; will not feel bound by them Focus on information Prefer detailed instructions to avoid later error Back up your assertions with expert opinions Build up consensus with informal informational meetings Slide 13 Copyright © 2012 by Melanie Billings-Yun.
Negotiating with Americans Be frank and honest *They will feel betrayed or lied to if you agree only to be polite *Are comfortable with open disagreement Be direct *Not trained to pick up subtle signals Be open *Americans like to “lay their cards on the table” *But are also quite competitive Be informal and friendly, but firm Don’t be offended by detailed contracts Respect their time and space needs *Get to the point quickly *Don’t overwhelm their need for free time Slide 14 Copyright © 2012 by Melanie Billings-Yun.

Slide 18 Dealing with Cultural Differences Learn about the other culture A local expert will start you on the right foot. Be clear and precise in meanings Don’t assume they understand and don’t leave concerns unspoken. Problems not dealt with now will come back to bite you later. Get to know the other side carefully Is this the right fit? Best to find out if you can work together before you have committed yourself Cross-cultural negotiation shouldn’t be rushed Don’t let the other side force you into making unwise agreements or include terms that you don’t understand Copyright © 2012 by Melanie Billings-Yun.
