Working in an multi-cultural environment, you often face differences in communication patterns which need to be overcome for successful meetings, negotiations and collaboration. I do face these challenges in my daily life working with teams in India, Germany, US and Japan. This book really helped me to understand these behaviours and hopefully address them differently in the future. To give you an example from Mr. Lewis' new book, that shows how easy it is to get confused when talking diverse cultures and how important it is to be guided by an expert of cultures: How do Germans deal with disagreement ? They tend to say: "I don t agree". Whereas a Japanese would say in the same situation: "We agree".
The book is easy to read, you can quickly look for certain cultures and situations - a perfect guide for anybody working or living in a multicultural environment.
