Latest Podcast - How to Influence Cross Culturallyby Tim Cox
This podcast contains some really practical tips and insights from Erin Meyer, who is a professor at INSEAD and author of the bestselling book The Culture Map: Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business.
During the podcast she raises some key points, including:
- It’s more helpful to know how cultures compare to one another on specific issues than it is to just describe a specific culture.
- Different cultures have signals that mean different things.
- Historically homogenous cultures tend to be less explicit in their communication styles, with much more communication implied.
Listen for some great examples of when we can get it wrong and a prompt to ‘be curious, be humble, listen before you speak, and learn before you teach’.
