10 Tips to Work Effectively With Americans

ThinkPalm LogoManoj KP, Director and CEO of ThinkPalm Technologies shares the top ten tips to work successfully with American clients and counterparts. 

10 Ways to Set a Good Impression and Quickly Build Relationships with US Clients

  1. Be clear – if you don’t understand, get clarity, summarize and assure you understand. 
  2. Vet all processes up front  
  3. Don’t make assumptions 
  4. US counterparts expect transparency 
  5. Adapt to the process 
  6. Be ready to justify your position with fact, figures, and business reasons
  7. Know the big picture, not just the details of today (important even for status updating) 
  8. Be able to articulate your accomplishments and positions – not only in the selling process, but also during the engagement. 
  9. Focus on providing value adds and extras, more than what is explicitly asked for. 
  10. Communicate readiness to go to the next step
