If you are dealing with a Thai company or set up a company in Thailand, do not assume that these companies run the same way as at home. They work in the West at a company or organization and their loyalty to that organization. In Thailand, organizations do not work together in Japan, but in a person. The person must be able to exercise authority and respect respect. The older and more important (or she) the more you will be respected. The Thai workers are loyal to their bosses, provided they do everything they need.
However, the role of the manager is not limited to achieving work goals. It comes to other areas. In the Thai society, the superiors have responsibilities to the responsible persons. They are waiting for them to be kindly treated, pay attention to their well-being, and to discover their mistakes. The manager's staff are considered a guardian and are expected to empathize and help them in all sorts of ways, helping their relatives find work to lead the weddings.
This requires a balancing action between the authority (pradet) and the practice of prac- tice (prakun). If you take good care of your colleagues, you will gain respect and loyalty and will be prepared to go extra mile when you need it. But if he does not develop a deep and trusted relationship with his subordinates, he weakens his position.
It is customary for Western companies to shut down staff if they do not perform well. Not for Thai companies where most workers expect to spend their whole life in the same company. If you are silenced by incompetence or laziness, you may lose your face. They also have strong connections. If you have to do it, you must be very careful. Praise is much more motivating than the responsible.
Some international companies with subsidiaries in Thailand are known to bite the bullet and fire the local manager, but such moves may have deliberate and unfortunate consequences.
The Thai people are more in business with someone they know and trust, so the most important task is to establish a good working relationship (nami). This will inevitably take time, so patience is indispensable. No one can expect to arrive in Bangkok one day and leave the contract signed, sealed, and next shipped.
The first impressions are important, so you should strictly stick to the dress code, especially in Bangkok. It is conceivable that, given the warm and clumsy climate of the capital, people will dress comfortably, but they will be wrong. Thai men are dressed in formal suits for formal meetings and visits and expect visitors to do the same. The Thai women are just as clever. It was blamed by former Thai Prime Minister Phibul Songkhram for insisting that formal Western clothing was a sign of civilization and that there was nothing else.
To make life more bearable, first invest – A light suit that a local Indian or Chinese tailor should be able to do within 24 hours. Keep in mind that many of the buildings you want to visit are stylish air conditioning.
Informal gatherings outside business hours often wear casual wear, provided it looks smart. Colorful Thai cotton or silk shirts are doing very well with these events, but it's worth checking out what the dress code will be to avoid the embarrassment. It goes without saying that it needs to be well-groomed and ideally cracked. The Thai are distrustful with bears and unending hair.
Do not underestimate the importance of social gatherings, as this is a way of gaining confidence. Additionally, while you are thinking of dough, you can find useful information that does not appear during official meetings. The Thai people who hinder their views at formal talks due to the lack of English proficiency are more likely to open up in a more relaxed atmosphere. That's why you're ready to refresh your social skills and realize that the length of a conversation in good conversation is often timely. Nevertheless, do not be so relaxed that you have forgotten the rules of the etiquette; Avoid taboo topics and do not make jokes that can be lost in translation. Keep in mind that a certain amount of flattery is always going well.
