- Stay cool and control during negotiations and do not demonstrate emotions.
Decisions are rarely made “on the spot”.
All team members are usually involved in decision making, so speak to everyone at the meeting, instead of just addressing the leaders.
“Consensus” is a buzz word in a Swedish meeting. Even if it is just for everyone to agree on the decision that…. they will have another meeting!
- Most Swedes speak and understand English, so it isn’t normally necessary to translate your business cards and other materials into Swedish.
