So what’s in it for you?!
We look at techniques for getting giving and clarifying information – getting things done – and of particular interest to me – all within remote working settings. Other more colorful keywords of our lively conversation include:Language learning techniques.
Power distance. Contrasting degrees of collectivism. Attitudes to instruction – like “My way or the highway”. We look at Rainbow hair. Foreign accents and last but not least – the rumors of whose death have been greatly exaggerated – insights into the many lives of a fly called Fred.
