Course Description

In this lesson, RW³ CultureWizard and ExecSense examine Brazilian work culture. Take the 45 minutes to learn about the challenges of doing business in Brazil and how to refine your communication style to meet Brazilian standards.

This 7-chapter lesson is led by an expert on the topic, Vivian Manasse Leite, LL.M. (Managing Director and Founder of GoingPlaces in Sao Paulo, Brazil), and focuses on implicit communication, the importance of “enchantment,” and the informal hierarchies that characterize doing business in Brazil.

In this 45-minute session, you will learn:

  • A brief overview of the recent economic and institutional history of Brazil and a statistically founded explanation of its unique place in South America and the globe
  • How the concept of “enchantment” influences communication in Brazil, why good relationships are seen as essential to business success, and how efficiency is tied to social interaction
  • A comprehensive guide to managing one of the most complex phenomena in Brazilian work life—informal hierarchies—with actionable tips, questions to ask, and practical advice
  • A list of strategies for success: using face-to-face communication to avoid conflict, becoming comfortable with emotional devices and humor, fusing the personal and the professional, and more
  • An in-depth question-and-answer pre-recorded session full of tips, personal examples, and best practices with a special focus on managerial success in Brazil
