The world is full of people travelling and doing business and we have to constantly learn to change and adapt on how to deal with others from different cultures. We are constantly being challenged with how to respond to others so that we can get our message across clearly without unmeant meanings; which happens far to often. Not being aware of the needs of different cultures can often land us in hot water.
Erin Meyer is the author of a great book called the Culture Map which helps provide a framework that we can learn to use on how to initially see the key differences in culture for various countries and then use this to respond to others…hopefully for a win / win outcome.
I came across a interview that was very interesting and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
