Guide: Hello, my Chinese is not good, sorry. Recently, in the office of the deputy general manager of Ningxiang Sany parfiger company, American Eric's pure Chinese pronunciation surprised me. However, his Chinese is limited to a few words. With the help of translation, Eric talked about his work and life in Sany
"Hello, my Chinese is not good, sorry." Recently, in the office of the deputy general manager of palfiger company from Ningxiang III to 2025, Eric, an American, was surprised by his pure Chinese pronunciation. However, his Chinese is limited to a few words. With the help of translation, Eric talked about his work and life experience in Sany. "It's hot in summer here, and Changsha people are more enthusiastic." Eric likes spicy food, and the warm Changsha makes him feel at home
chopsticks with peanuts won the Chinese colleague
"the sofa exhibition is too fast!" Eric sighed that what impressed him most was the rapid changes in Changsha. Eric has worked in Singapore for many years. He believes that Singapore is highly internationalized, and Changsha is catching up faster and faster. During the nearly two years of working in Sany, Eric not only liked the delicious food in Changsha, but also practiced the "unique skill" of Chopsticks - peanut sandwiching. Eric likes to soak peanuts in vinegar, but it's not easy for a foreigner to pick up peanuts with chopsticks. Six months ago, Eric and his Chinese colleagues competed to clip peanuts with chopsticks when eating. As a result, he was amazing and won the game. For the trick, Eric said simply, "practice makes perfect."Now let's take a look at the difference between these two kinds of machines and equipment.
the "Sino US combination" joint venture Fu Shuitu
as the deputy general manager and chief financial officer of a Sino foreign joint venture, Eric is responsible for the company's finance, process, informatization and other daily management work. With the efforts of him and his colleagues, the technology and management concept from Europe have been able to gradually adapt to different soil and water, and "take root" in Sany
Eric told that the key to the success of the joint venture lies in communication. "Sany group and parfiger group are strong alliances. As long as the two sides communicate well, they can play the effect of 1+1 greater than 2." Whether enterprises or individuals, there are always certain cultural differences in different countries
Eric gave an example. In terms of communication habits, the cultural difference between China and the West lies in that the Chinese are implicit, while the westerners are relatively direct. During his work in Sany, Eric skillfully combined the "Chinese way" with the "American way", laughing at the "combination of China and the United States". "For example, when communicating with Chinese employees, I will use the Chinese way to gently suggest him how to improve something; in some things, I will understand the experimental space required for the experiment. The beam displacement and vertical experimental space required for the experiment. If it is an elastomer experiment, the beam displacement and vertical experimental space will be a little higher. The specific situation needs to be determined according to the experimental requirements. In terms of decision-making, I will use the American way, directly say yes or no, in order to Avoid misunderstandings. "
tutor Chinese to become a "China hand"
after work, Eric will walk around the streets looking for "surprises". Due to his poor Chinese, Eric once had a strange "adventure" that caused bone loss and prosthesis loosening in the long run. One weekend at noon, because he wanted to eat Chinese food, he came to a local restaurant alone. Due to the language barrier and the lack of atlas on the menu, Eric finally had to order on the Chinese menu in a row. When serving, the waiter first gave him plastic gloves, which made him uneasy
"what kind of dish is this?" When the dishes were served, Eric fell to the ground with a stone in his heart. It turned out to be a big pair of pig feet. Eric feasted, "that adventure was worth it."
Eric spends more than 90% of his time in China and claims to be a "Changsha citizen" to the letter. Across the ocean, his family often came to see him. "I've been here five times this year, and they also like China and sany." Now, Eric is "mending" Chinese every week, "striving to become a China expert as soon as possible." Eric is very confident
