There’s no such thing as an inherent problem when dealing with team members in India.
It’s frustrating when your clear strategy results in poor outcomes. Not because you’re doing anything wrong, but because you’re dealing with a country that does things differently.
You could carry on accepting that problems will occur, or you could empower your people using the most formidable weapon in the business world – knowledge.
