Last week we were invited to guest lecture at Karolinska Institutet on ”Surviving and Thriving at Work in Sweden”, part of our intercultural training series to help internationals fast forward their adaptation to working in Sweden.
The aim of the lecture, delivered by Anne Pihl, was to help build competence and confidence for working at Karolinska Institutet by highlighting some of the driving forces behind Swedish culture and norms, as well as the unwritten rules of Swedish business culture. This sixty minute intercultural journey explored how different perspectives can handicap but also strengthen connection and provided helpful tips for surviving and thriving in Sweden.
Attendees also received a copy of the recently published book ”Working in Sweden : The A-Z Guide”, written to help international professionals smoothly navigate working life in Sweden by bridging the cultural and language divide, explaining what they need to know and what they can expect at Swedish workplaces.
