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.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

Anonim a dat nota:

Recomand cu incredere aceasta carte. Usoara de citit si prezentata intr-o maniera logica, autoarea reuseste sa ne ofere o imagine reala asupra mediului de munca multicultural si dinamic din ziua de azi. Utila celor care lucreaza in corporatii multinationale.


Am citit foarte rapid aceasta carte si mi s-a parut foarte interesanta. Ilustreaza cat de diferiti sint de fapt oamenii. Cred ca e util de stiut in general aceste tipologii, dar in special daca trebuie sa interactionati zilnic cu culturi diferite si nu aveti cunostinte in domeniu, va poate ajuta.
