Living and working in a foreign culture is fraught with physical and emotional difficulties, concerns about cultural factors, and business etiquette.
For the individual, this creates stress, which reduces effectiveness and can strain relationships with colleagues. For their partners, it can be equally if not more unsettling and a strained relationship at home only worsens the effects for both.
For companies, it can range from an expensive mistake, loss of revenue, or loss of future business.
So if you want to go there and do it, seek the help from someone who’s been there and done it.
