Abstract:

[This book] teaches a way of thinking and being that will enable managers to function effectively in any culture ... The authors show how to acquire the kinds of universal global people skills that will allow you to adapt quickly to, and thrive in, any cultural environment. You'll learn to see cues in cross-cultural situations and discover how to disable the "cultural cruise control" that makes you unaware of how your own culture affects your perceptions. You'll develop a repertoire of behavioral skills appropriate to different inter-cultural situations and will be able to choose the right ones for a given interaction. [This book] will help you be more effective in making decisions, communicating and negotiating across cultures, leading and motivating others who are culturally different, and managing your international career.-Back cover.
