Having Business with International Clients
It is said that when one has achieved success, one’s life would be more difficult. There is a certain theory called the Peter Principle which came from Dr Laurence Peter that states that every employee is bound to be promote if he does well in his job, but his new position will be something he is not really suited for. And the reason for this is that you have done exceptionally well in your previous position since you had the capability to do it and so you can easily complete the tasks. Now you are placed in a higher position where the responsibility is more than the previous one and the tasks are not that easy to do. Still, you may do well in this new position and you will continue to impress your boss and your name is nominated for promotion once again.
At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. And then you realize that you were only competent up to the previous job you had. We see here that through regular promotions, since there are no demotions in corporations, an employee can lose his effectiveness in his new role as compared to his old position. Although this may be true, the corporation still continue to do well since there are still other employees who are still doing well in their positions and have not yet reached their level of incompetence. There is no such success problem for a person running his own business since there is no hierarchy to speak of. You success if you do well and you suffer if you don’t. Successful business owners should try their hand in venturing in international business.
It is exciting to meet with business people from other parts of the world. First impression is very important so make sure you do good and make them recognize your abilities. To achieve that, here are some thing you need to do.
Booking a jet charter company rather than making them ride a commercial flight is the first step towards making a good first impression. It is expensive yet it is one good way of impressing them so that it will end up with a good business deal. It will then seem not expensive at all if you end up with a good business deal. When choosing a hotel, make sure that your choice can enhance your relationship with them instead of hinder it. When making arrangements make sure that it is something that your guests would do if they were doing it themselves and knew the place well enough.
You need to research the kind of business guests you will be having. There are those who would rather be active and some would like more of a quiet relaxing place.
