How do you talk to Indian colleagues?
Test your cultural expertise with our weekly quiz question.
Last week we talked about celebrating personal accomplishments in Australia. Thanks to everyone who joined in the discussion on last week’s question. Here’s the answer:
False, Australians have a dislike for “tall poppies” who appear to boast of their achievements and prefer the more modest “team player.”
What do you think? Is that what you expected?
The new question is from India:
As part of your work you talk to Sanjay Mehta, an Indian person who is junior to you in rank but older than you. You should address him as “Sanjay” because your status is higher.
True or False?
Check next week’s post for the answer.
