german business culture etiquette
German Business Culture & Etiquette
  • German Business structure
    • Most power vested in a few senior managers or supervisory board.
  • Management Style
    • German manager-subordinate relationship is distant and cold. Not unheard of for people to work together for years and never socialize.
  • Meetings
    • German companies tend towards the development of specialists, rather than generalists
  • Communication style
    • Germans put truth and directness before diplomacy, believing that the fact is the important issue and that personal emotions should not deflect the truth from being spoken.
  • Other Tips
      • Germans are uneasy with uncertainty and ambiguity
      • In-depth, long-term planning is both expected and respected.
      • The greatest amount of respect is due to the person with the greatest depth of technical merit.
      • Outbursts of emotion in the workplace (anger, frustration etc.) are seen as signs of weakness and lack of professionalism.
      • Employees expect to be given precise, detailed instructions regarding specific tasks, but then expect to be left to carry them out without undue interference or supervision.
      • Relationships between bosses and subordinates tend to appear somewhat formal.
      • Humor is generally out of place in the work place. You should certainly avoid humor in all difficult or important business situations. However, when socializing with Germans you will find that they are as keen to enjoy themselves as you are.
