Learn Norwegian and ensure you can follow ‘Jante Law’ with your Norwegian guests

“Norway has a strictly egalitarian culture, the cornerstone of which is ‘Jante Law’. According to Jante Law, values of humility, respect, simplicity and equality are a priority. As such, Norwegian people are not vocal about their own achievements (wealth, intelligence, material goods) and are generally unimpressed by those who show off about such things.

It’s important to bear that in mind when communicating with your Norwegian guests, focusing on the facts about your facilities and amenties. Business communication is direct with no excess emotion, small talk, beating around the bush or flamboyant body language.”
