The Hard Truth About Soft SkillsMay 2, 2019
International business is a wonderful avenue to implement diverse strategies and offer your services to as many people as possible. Given the difficulties that come with expanding globally, a successful international business needs strong-willed, open-minded, and dedicated leadership. With foreign tax obligations and unfamiliar labor laws, you’ll want to seek the services of legal specialists, international business experts, and human resource consultants.
What Not to Overlook in International Business
- Language Barriers. While this might seem obvious, some international entrepreneurs might not realize that they will have to overcome language barriers when working internationally. Whether internally or externally, be intentional when communicating and setting communication guidelines. Your clients, customers, and employees most likely will not share a native language.
- Convergence. While your next million-dollar idea might translate well in your home country, it might need to be re-evaluated for international business. The best practices that work for you might not work overseas, so keep an open mind when setting your business model.
- Human Resources. A company based in the U.S. will have different human resources standards than a business in Brazil or in your country. To properly conform to foreign labor laws and a different culture, your international business will require the services of a human resources consultant.
