Conflict analysis and conflict management

Different country, different habits

The quality of international communication is mainly determined by your language ability as well as the language ability of your business partner abroad. Next to language ability, the adoption of cultural understanding is of major importance for ensuring your business is a success on the international market.

Doing business abroad can be risky and more difficult due to differences in culture and the habits and customs between trade partners. Good preparation and background knowledge will prevent many misunderstandings.

Language and culture

Often, negotiations and work meetings take place in English, a language that is not always fully dominated by both parties. It is much better to be able to negotiate in your own language. Only then will you be assured that you will dot the right i's. An interpreter-translator is the solution. Brasilva has native speaker interpreters and translators on its books. They know the language but also the culture. They are well aware of the codes that apply with regard to these types of negotiations and know how the bureaucracy works in the relevant country. Trying to do this on your own as a foreigner will take ages.

Conflict mediation

Conflicts between parties can occur but must be solved. And fast! Conflicts, after all, c ost time and money and are a source of irritation. Disputes will put relationships between, for example, players, trainers, sponsors and club management at risk, never mind the financial consequences. You can also act as a mediator as a sports manager with the assistance of an interpreter; you can get the communication started again with creative solutions as a neutral third party.

A conflict is bad enough. If the language creates an additional barrier, Brasilva can supply a suitable interpreter. An interpreter who can assist you and your foreign sportsperson to arrive at a solution together. You will, thus, avoid that people opt for a legal position. You can also play an important role for your sportspeople as a sports manager and/or acting manager in this area.
