Discover the Key to Making Successful Connections in the New Global Era
In an era when people, money, and information are flowing faster than ever across international boundaries, we are all just one step away from a culture crash. It's a phenomenon that occurs when someone from one culture unintentionally confuses or offends someone from another culture.
Today, culture crashes even occur on our home turf, where our workplaces and communities are diversifying at astonishing rates. Global business consultant Michael Landers offers a proven strategy for minimizing culture crashes to maximize our ability to seize new opportunities and build strong, profitable connections with anybody.
Landers's methodology has succeeded over the past two decades with leading Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions in the United States and around the world. In this groundbreaking book, readers embark on a journey in which they discover the profound ways that culture influences us, unconsciously shaping our perceptions, expectations, and behaviors. This heightened self-awareness becomes the springboard from which readers learn how to take control of the knee-jerk reactions that get them into trouble and develop the agility to adjust their behaviors in ways that can vastly improve all of their physical and virtual interactions with people from diverse backgrounds.
Through a mix of entertaining and instructive stories, valuable insights, and eye-opening self-assessment exercises, Culture Crossing is an essential primer for working, living, and thriving in the new global era.
