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.

“This book provides a practical framework to help you understand and negotiate the

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

—Hans Brechbühl, Executive Director, Center for Digital Strategies and Adjunct Associate

Professor of Business, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College

“Cultural skill is a core competency for today’s business leaders, and as pointed out

in Managing Across Cultures it’s a learnable one. As a business learning professional,

I strongly recommend reading this practical and valuable book.”

—Nancy L. Brennock, Director of Textron University, Textron Inc.

Managing Across Cultures is a must-read for anyone going to or thinking about

going to work in another country.”

—Andrew Walker, Head of Global Mobility, Thomson Reuters

Managing Across Cultures is an engaging and comprehensive resource for anyone

who works—or will be working—across cultures. It is an excellent guide to help navigate

the complexities of working in the global marketplace.”

—Paula Caligiuri, Ph.D., Professor, Human Resource Management and

Director, Center for Human Resource Strategy at Rutgers University
