How to work with the Dutch?
Working with the Dutch can be confusing. Are they being rude, or just direct? What about the Dutch ‘flat hierarchy’, which sometimes appears to be not so flat at all? And how does the Dutch decision-making process (The Polder Model) work, where everyone is asked for their input and opinion in meetings?
We completely understand. Understanding how the Dutch communicate and behave is essential when working and living in the Netherlands. Even when you are Dutch yourself! When you are more aware of your own communication style, and how you may come across to others, you can adapt and anticipate accordingly. This leads to more pleasant collaboration.
