Asian are very good in keeping harmony. Asian tend to avoid conflicts in order to maintain harmony with their peers. There is nothing wrong with this but it is quite different to Westerners who aren’t afraid to face conflict, confront directly, criticize, discuss controversial topics, press personal opinions about what they consider the truth. Having courage to face conflict is encouraged in an Agile organisation but it is rarely seen in Asian companies, especially having conflict with the Boss.
