Situational Flexibility


Situational flexibility is present in and influences social, business and legal situations in China and the Chinese have a competitive mindset that enables them to gain favourable outcomes using this Chinese societal norm.

This is very different from most western countries where one rule applies, to everybody, all the time and in every situation. Without understanding what situational flexibility is, how it works and how to use it, foreigners in China will face challenges and disadvantages.

This video quickly and clearly explains the origins and workings of situational flexibility, why it's logical and it works in China, how hierarchy, relationships and conflict avoidance influence situations, how to read situations and motivations and how to adapt your behaviours and communication for more favourable outcomes.
