Calibrating our Flex

We will now unpick four areas of Flex that people struggle with the most, sometimes as they are the most common problems; sometimes as they are the most difficult.

They are:

  • using language
  • whether humour helps or hinders
  • adapting to local ways
  • dressing and greeting

No doubt there are many other areas of flex to unpick but we will work on these four to begin with.

What do you think are some of the others?

With all of the above areas of contention we have to calibrate our Flex, and there are no right or wrong answers. By definition there can’t be; after all we are in Flex.
