Editorial Reviews

Review

“Kochman and Mavrelis provide analyses, anecdotes, and examples from their research and training experiences that give richness and credibility to their reasoning. As a consequence, their discussions are vivid, insightful, and stimulating. Their arguments about the connection between the cultures of racial, gender, and ethnic groups and the conflicts that can surface between and among members of them are thought-provoking. And their timely conclusions will be relevant in the workplace and to society at large.”
(R. Roosevelt Thomas, author of Building on the Promise of Diversity)

“Full of interesting ideas, observations, and sensible suggestions, Corporate Tribalism offers an easily digestible but serious look at interethnic communication in organizational settings. Built on the authors’ own observations and experiences, Kochman and Mavrelis’s practical book will appeal to anyone working in human resources or diversity training as well as supervisors and managers in all kinds of organizations. This is a valuable work that deserves to be widely read.”
(Robert M. Entman, coauthor of The Black Image in the White Mind: Media and Race)

Corporate Tribalism chronicles the multiple gender-specific ways that power and privilege are configured in the dominant American work context—the corporation—and identifies the behaviors that are influential in making it dysfunctional. In this pioneering work, Kochman and Mavrelis systematically unmask claims of a meritocratic reward system, pinpointing and naming the practices that have been invisible to white employees both male and female, yet painfully visible to the members of every other social group in corporate America. By insisting on a multicultural approach to social inclusion in the workplace, they seek to compel employees to learn from each other, and, in the process, transform corporate practices.”
(Signithia Fordham, author of Blacked Out)

Format: Hardcover
Over the years I've read a lot about diversity and attended sensitivity trainings, but this book offers a more comprehensive look at these issues. It not only points out the differences between cultures, but talks about why cultures communicate differently and offers strategies for improving workplace interactions. I can see how it would be useful to any manager, or corporate worker. Honestly it even can be applied to personal relationships outside of the workplace.

Format: Hardcover
Business partners and co-authors, Kochman and Mavrelis, have produced a work of art - Corporate Tribalism - that demystifies the subject of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Based on years of research and training on the topic, they have applied bold new colors to an old conversation by asking the question, "What happens when different cultures and genders collide at work?" Using objective brush strokes, they answer the question by noting the differences in cultural styles and social experiences for several dominant groups in today's U.S. work force. Included in this vibrant discussion is the communication style for each group, and the holes in the communication canvas that can and do develop based on cultural differences and their unintended consequences. The co-authors properly frame this masterpiece by providing solutions to a number of social adjustment issues. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in better understanding diversity and inclusion and cultural conflicts in working and non-working environments.
