The Culture Map by Whether you work in a home office or abroad, business success in our ever more globalized and virtual world requires the skills to navigate through cultural differences and decode cultures foreign to your own. Renowned expert Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain where people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together. When you have Americans who precede anything negative with three nice comments; French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans who get straight to the point ( your presentation was simply awful ); Latin Americans and Asians who are steeped in hierarchy; Scandinavians who think the best boss is just one of the crowd--the result can be, well, sometimes interesting, even funny, but often disastrous. Even with English as a global language, it's easy to fall into cultural traps that endanger careers and sink deals when, say, a Brazilian manager tries to fathom how his Chinese suppliers really get things done, or an American team leader tries to get a handle on the intra-team dynamics between his Russian and Indian team members. In The Culture Map, Erin Meyer provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business. She combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice for succeeding in a global world.

intercultural Sensitivity : from Denial to Intercultural Competence by In het razendsnelle internationale educationele omgeving moeten studenten steeds meer interculturele sensitiviteit verkrijgen om zo hun communicatie met docenten en studenten te verbeteren en zo een beter startpunt verkrijgen voor een internationale baan. Door uitwisselingsprogramma’s spenderen een groot deel van de studenten een half jaar of meer in het buitenland. Met mobiele programma’s worden buitenlandse lessen direct tot in het klaslokaal gebracht. Op deze manier worden de lessen steeds cultureel diverser. Onderzoek wijst uit dat deze groepen zelden gemiddeld zijn. Zij werken onder de norm of excelleren juist boven de norm uit. Cultureel diverse groepen varen goed als de verschillen worden benadrukt en erkend als waardevolle toevoegingen voor groei en ontwikkeling. Dit boek zorgt er voor dat universiteiten en studenten graag meer willen leren van andere culturen. Maar ook zelf bewust worden van hun eigen uniekheid. Deze nieuwe editie gebruikt de culturele modellen van Hall, Kluckhohn en Hofstede samen met de moderne en dynamische aanpak van Trompenaars: de 7 culturele dimensies.
