Do you communicate differently with international teams?
I don't know if I should be doing this or not, but I am more formal with teams from different countries in my written communication.
For example, email headers:
- US, Canada, and Australia: "Hi/Hey <given name>" (or no greeting at all if replying to an existing thread, or I am familiar with the person)
- Europe and India: "Hello, <given name>"
- Japan: "Hello/Greetings, <family name>-san"
- China: "Hello/Greetings, <given name>"
I don't know if this is even right...or if anyone even cares...
What about you? Do you communicate differently with international teams? If yes, what are the differences?
(Also, in the comments, could you tell me where you are from and, if you do have a preference, how you would prefer for others to communicate with you?)
