“I live in the EU. My cultural background is different from those in the EU. Can I follow this training? Is it suitable for me?”
As long as you recognize (some of) the issues written on this website, the training is suitable for you. Than it doesn’t matter if you are originally from China, India, South America, Canada, Israel, Greece, Turkey, etc. The checklists and workbooks with assignments will be very useful to you.
In the second resume I discuss American values (like time is money, launching products very quickly, being very opportunistic about deadlines and results and prices, talking about rosy pictured results, being very proud, a winning mentality, being service minded, etc). Some of these American values can ‘clash’ with your values or objectives such as cost-efficiency and re-use, deliver quality, openness & sharing information (instead of not sharing requirements), win-win mentality (instead of win-lose), thoughtfulness and a structured way of working. I explain how to deal with these.
Not all values or goals may be important to you, depending your culture. Only use the ones that apply to you. If you experience situations that have not been described here, you can share them via the online community. I will react. If it is something that more people experience and if it fits within the scope of the training, I can include this in the training. You can acces the online community when you have purchased this training.
Living in the EU is only important for tax reasons. Because of the tax system it is relatively easy for 4c Unity to do taxes for digital services for private persons in the EU (without a VAT ID number) and companies based in the EU (with a VAT ID number), but not possible to do this for persons and companies based outside the EU. It is unfortunately too complex.
