Cultural difference awareness is becoming increasingly crucial in the context of globalization. To my view of thinking, the more we know about Finnish culture, the better we understand and discover their secrets for success. After learning and interacting with many Finnish entrepreneurs, managerial staff, and office staff, I figure out interesting cultural characteristics of Finns in general and business culture in particular. By understanding features of culture, we are able to not only avoid causing offence to others, but also maintain good relationships in the long-term run. In general, it seems to me that Finns are straightforward, friendly, easy to make acquaintance,… and love nature and sports activities, but they really expect others’ respect of their need for privacy. There are much more fascinating things about people in this wonderland. Let’s discover with me.
