This book takes the reader beyond the broad brush stroke and cultural "tip" sheets that may be interesting but largely ineffectual in building meaningful cultural understanding and competency.ÂGlobal DiversityÂoffers a nice balance between in-depth and practical informationÂon each country profiled. The invitation to critically think about and discuss the diversityÂwithinÂcultures is implicit in the content and that approach is a refreshing one given the increased need for cross-cultural collaboration in a globally integrated world.
This book offers a unique approach to global diversity, one that goes beyond country-to-country communication, emphasizing the need - and tools - to understand the diversity within each country. Framing chapters expertly inform readers why this approach is effective and offer tips on how to use it, while the interior chapters present necessary information on the diversity within specific countries.ÂIt's quite an addition to the literature!
Global DiversityÂfocuses adeptly on cultures within cultures.ÂA must-read for anyone who wants to navigate successfully in the world market and is not satisfied with cursory descriptions.Malini Janakiraman, Director, Corporate Learning, Honeywell
Global Diversity: Winning Customers and Engaging Employees within World MarketsÂcharts a course for approaching diversity and inclusion within an organized context. The framework is pragmatic and provocative, helping evoke healthy discussion among senior leaders, colleagues and change facilitators. It isÂrefreshingÂto have the authors work with diversity and inclusion as a change process and not simplify the complex topic. The thinking reflected in this book will help me, my global colleagues, and others broaden our perspectives of what is possible - and will help make the world smaller.
