“a delightful delicacy of a read; a recipe for cultural success and a must for your leadership library”
Are you fascinated but frustrated by cultural differences? Have you stood on the edge of cultural ‘gaps’ and wondered how on earth to bridge them?
Working across cultures can be very challenging, both professionally and personally, but these cultural ‘gaps’ can be bridged. Cultural Chemistry combines strategy with knowledge, introducing you firstly to the Four R’s – an easy, four-step process for simplifying and improving your cross-cultural partnerships – and then exploring cultural differences, by meeting people and hearing stories from all over the world.
Whether you are a business traveller, an expatriate, have global clients, work in a multi-cultural team or are simply a holiday maker who wants to dig deeper, Cultural Chemistry will teach you;
- Why reflecting on our own culture is so important
- How to make a great first impression
- Why our assumptions about people are often completely wrong
- Why what we say isn’t always what is heard
- How to be an effective manager and motivator, whatever the culture
Cultural differences don’t have to be difficult. By learning more about cultural variances and being prepared to turn off our cultural cruise-control, we really can make cross-cultural encounters both more rewarding and more enjoyable.
