1. Understanding Western international company values – in western international business, a key factor of success is understanding western values. It is not a question of right or wrong but each group has its own way of looking at the world and at values, moral issues and so on. Our candidates need to know what is expected of them once they are at work in an international company.
2. Different Western organisational structures – how they operate; why they are needed; different structures to meet different needs; understanding corporate hierarchies and values; the overall role functions for each division.
3. How the key functions interact – HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, Production, Research and others. What are their roles? We are talking about not only what the functions do but also how they interact. The point here is to highlight the roles of each function but also the tensions that necessarily and correctly exist between them (checks and balances). It is similar to the teamwork topics below but describing how a whole structure works.
4. Teaming and teamwork – how to fully play your part in a team; what to do and what not to do; team leadership UK style; motivation of teams and structure; helping others; being ‘easy to work with’; what are their own preferred team roles?
5. Importance and skills of networking – what this means in practice; getting involved in voluntary activities; keeping track of friends and colleagues; being interested; how to avoid office politics and how to deal with them; being fair and straightforward.
6. Common challenges in a trainee’s life – what to do when you have nothing to do; how to observe and learn; how to volunteer yet not be a shoe-shiner; doing whatever you do perfectly; asking questions.
7. How your performance will be judged – targets and target setting; appraisals and reviews; how to react, learn and respond; generally, target-setting is the norm but so are competency-based assessments; most companies also ask for employees’ own assessment of themselves and to set their own targets; we show candidates how to do this to their advantage.
8. Communicating with others – the art of being seen and being appreciated; how to shine without being pushy; how to be fluent and precise in public and private conversations; how to impress; making a good presentation; how to write good corporate English.
9. Work/life balance – is it important to you? How do you achieve it? Should you follow your UK colleagues? What are your life goals? Planning for a good career long-term. This is a personal matter that depends on the person’s position in life, family status, health and engagement with work.
