#oneweekdailyblogging #2


hum. day 2 and already I am out of ideas. A „how to not do your hair“ from my perspective seems absurd..
How about this: Responsibility and Accountability.. or American and German language
As you know I work in a quite international company. We have people of around 20 different nationalities, the language that unites us is English. It is rather easy to communicate in English. However, every now and then one hits some missunderstanding.
Responsible and accountable.. Most Germans would translate it with „verantwortlich“. For our US guys there is a substantial difference.
I dont know if it is just a language thing or if it extends to a cultural thing as well. Maybe most Germans think that they are responsible for everything they are accountable for? Maybe some explanation that some tend to micromanage a lot?
