Overview

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.

challenges of culture—I have used it with managers and MBA students alike!”
