As a manager of a medium sized facility in South America it’s important that in order to achieve success managers must choose incentives such as pay, promotion and recognition in order to motivate their employees.  The work motivation theory is to show how basic processes will apply in the work environment.  In most work setting employees want security, affiliation, esteem, physiological and self-actualization best known as the hierarchy of needs theory.  As a manager I would also select the hierarchy needs theory.  This theory allows for growth, relatedness and existence needs.

In multicultural companies like China and Japan want to succeed with cross cultural communications.  Being successful in business opportunities will depend on international negotiations and how well they can communicate.  Negotiators will need to be able to understand the written and the oral languages.  Not being able to communicate can bring negative consequences to include misinterpreting gestures for a manager.   In Japan it is a known fact that a) silence is golden (more is less), b) age equals seniority (older executives receive more respect), c) privacy is valued (privacy is important), d) what you don’t know can hurt you (gift exchange is valuable to those in the business world), e) honor the official dress code (be conservative), f) the small stuff matters (small details and politeness) and g) manners speak loudly (use the other end of chopsticks to pick up food and never use the other side you use to eat).  In international negotiations they tend to be more complex than in domestic negotiations.  Strategy requires preparation, planning, the exchange of information and focus on preparation.
