Learn a Language, Strengthen your Business. The success of learning a foreign language is worth it.
The Measure of Business
Learning a new language takes dedication and perseverance, both fundamental skills in business. What would happen if you gave up when the going got tough? Dedicate your time to this new endeavor. Imagine your future success, but don’t expect it now.
Learning a new language changes the corporate playing field.
Conversations are equal parts talking and listening. Imagine your rate of success when you begin understanding tone, inflection, traditions, and nuances of cultures other than your own.
Earning their trust.
Using or not using simple gestures and formalities can make or break a deal. Learning a new language gives you a glimpse into appropriate and professional behavior.
If you don’t start early, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start at all.
Children exposed to new languages will often pick them up rather quickly, but even if you’re a monolinguist now, it doesn’t mean you have to continue as such.
Expanding your network.
Learning new languages introduces you to new people. When you meet new people, you know more people. Working to expand your network increases the probability of business opportunities and possible collaborations.
Improve brain function.
Learning new skills—including a new language—improves brain function. As your memory becomes stronger and decision making becomes easier, imagine how this may also help you remembering names, dates, facts, figures and faces. No more handshaking and wishing you remembered that person’s name!
