Most Indians are proud to be called good negotiators since they are ambitious and entrepreneurial. There are also cultural differences between how businesses are conducted in India and Europe. As a result, many European companies struggle to close a good business deal with an Indian customer or business partner. Gandert Roosen is CEO of Roosen Industries and has been active in the country for over 15 years.
1. Communicate strategically
“Europeans are accustomed to communicating directly and imposing their will on others. That isn’t the case in India. Consider what you want to achieve ahead of time and incorporate it cautiously into the conversation: “Can we perhaps…?” Good chance you’ll achieve your goal then.”
2. Keep looking at the possibilities rationally
“Indians are quick to say that something is simple to accomplish or, on the other hand, that it will be impossible. Follow your gut instincts and inquire as to why something is or is not possible. You can also check whether the other party has correctly understood you this way.”
3. Enjoy the game
“To make a good business deal, you have to play the game Indian style. That means sometimes you have to say you don’t have time or not answer your phone. Then you play the difficult European, while your staff massages the other party in the meantime. At first, I found this way of doing business frustrating, but now I enjoy it. I have become half an Indian.”
4. Always stay sharp in negotiations
“Indians are known for their tactical brilliance. Once I was eating for hours with an 80-year-old business associate. I had the feeling he was slowly dozing off until suddenly he surprised me and threw a proposal on the table
5. Show respect
“Arrogant foreigners irritate Indians. Therefore, prefer to adopt a somewhat reserved attitude, especially towards the more senior partners with whom you are seated at the table. People in India are not afraid to give or receive compliments; take advantage of this.”
