About Dutch Language
The Dutch culture of doing business is considered a very formal and reserved affair. The respect for their personal space and thought process is considered a vital part of the Dutch business etiquettes.
Netherlands has an egalitarian social setup where people expect their opinions to be heard and decisions reached at by consensus. Few business tips while dealing with your Dutch counterparts are:
- Use of rational arguments with facts to back them up and refrain from making emotional ones.
- Dutch like to come to the point directly with hardly any small talk. It is better to refrain from it while dealing with your Dutch associates.
- Be punctual and in case you can’t, call up and inform. Failure to do so might make you seem untrustworthy.
- Use of exaggerated speech and gestures is a strict no-no as the Dutch revere Modesty and such extravagances are seen in bad taste.
- Shake hands when introduced with all in the group, including children if there are any.
- Pay attention to details
- Keep your conduct professional and don’t ask any personal questions as this is considered outright rude behavior.
- Dutch people expect directness in their dealings, be prepared to expect a clear YES or a NO in your business interactions with them.
- Self control
