Hello, I’m Margaret and I live in London. Let me introduce you to a few of the cultural nuances of the United Kingdom. United Kingdom is culturally very vast with people from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland all having their own unique cultures, however we all share some commonalities in business which may be worthwhile for you to know when managing a team with people from the United Kingdom as team members.
At business meetings, British are rather formal at first, using first names only after 2 or 3 encounters. Within Roche, team members will of course, call each other by their first name immediately, however when working with suppliers, customers or patients, don’t be surprised to hear a very formal greeting.
British people like to show themselves as family oriented and it is normal for us to discuss children, vacations and reminiscences during and between meetings.
The British are very time-oriented; we are rather anxious about deadlines and results.
We do not like to be rushed towards a decision.
Humor is important in business sessions.
You’ll find that the British will often use humor against themselves or colleagues. It could be for:
• to break up tension in a situation
•to speed up discussion, when excessive formality is slowing it down
•to direct criticism towards a superior
•to introduce a new or wild idea
So it’s always good policy to use self-disparagement with British people and laugh at yourself
The British rarely disagree openly with proposals from the other side. We agree wherever possible but may qualify our agreement (Hmm, that’s a very interesting idea).
English people in particular, like instructions to be given in the form of suggestions or hints. ‘Perhaps we might try …’ is better than ‘I want you to this.’
Statements and actions should be low key. We British like everything to be – and appear to be – under control.
You’ll find that managers usually want to be considered as part of the team but may maintain a slight distance from it.
In discussions, British people are good at accepting occasional ambiguities and are prepared to read between the lines.
When you do wish to criticize, disagree or even praise, do it obliquely
I do hope you’ve found these suggestions useful.
