Surprisingly, up to 40% of expats globally quit their jobs before their contracts expire. 90% of expats in the survey in 68 countries agree that cross-culture leadership is the biggest challenge, not technical issues. (The Economist)
In a newly open Myanmar, expats often find lots of oddities, quirks, and challenges. “What is different is dangerous” – states Geert Hofstede, the leading scholar in intercultural theories. In Myanmar, U Aung Naing Oo, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Investment and Foreign Economic Relations mentions “An unintended insult to an employee or local community member can sometimes escalate to a much bigger problem for the organization.” Likewise, MCRB director Vicky Bowman comments “Minor cultural misunderstandings by foreign company employees can escalate into wider grievances, including with local communities, which can ultimately jeopardise investments”.
Though having lots of advantages working here, expats’ “ACHILLES’ HEEL” does matter. Giants can fall in Myanmar! Without proper preventions and preparations!
