Effective management techniques that cross all cultural boundaries
Managing Across Cultures examines seven behaviors common to all cultures and explains how to pinpoint and interpret actions that might initially seem out of step with your way of thinking and operating.
Business guides that take a situational approach just don’t cut it anymore. You need to do more than learn the specific gestures of other cultures. You need a global mindset. You need to strategize. You need Managing Across Cultures.
