- Look at the World Value Survey map and identify the positions of the cultures you are already familiar with. In what ways do you think this map can help you to understand differences and similarities between cultures, including Sweden’s?
- What do you believe are the biggest similarities and differences between work culture in Sweden and other countries you have worked in?
- In what ways are you preparing yourself for starting work in a new culture?
- In what ways are you prepared for things not going to plan, for example, if you fall ill or if you lose your job?
