How to Understand Alexander

Speaking English is one thing – understanding is another. Alexander prefers to communicate straightforward. A "no" comes from him just as easy as a "yes". Some cultures are not used to this kind of communication. Alexander, however, considers it most important that you correctly and not only possibly understand his consultation / your situation. Therefore, please do not be offended! When you have to communicate "no" and this is inconvenient for you because you consider it impolite, so please give him a break and negate your response as much as possible without really breaking with your culture! Consider Alexander relies on being understood and that he understands you. Consider straightforwardness as a chance, a new possibility – especially to cope with his impatience.
