Dare to rest: A trip to Europe

2021-02-18T13:48:01+00:00

When I was living in my old environment, I felt stuck to some degree because things became stagnant. Hence, my trip to Europe changed the dynamics fundamentally.

More recently, the 45 and Up study of more than 100,000 Australian adults [...]

2020-10-25T10:43:14+00:00

It turns out that body language is a part of culture as well, according to my key learnings from international trips over the years. Different cultures, different body language: People from different cultures use different body language which can cause conflicts, tensions and misunderstandings in the workplace. For example, in some cultures, the physical distance between two individuals is small when they are having a conversation. Yet in other cultures, the physical distance between two people is much bigger when they are talking to each other. If two staff members are from two very different cultures in which body language is [...]
