Our World of Work is Different Now
As organizations continue to expand globally and more individuals move geographically, we all are likely to find ourselves working with people who have cultural backgrounds, personalities, management styles, values, and worldviews that differ from our own.
Take Advantage of the Differences
With a straightforward, practical approach, you can streamline communication, overcome cultural barriers, and make the most of the individual styles and strengths within your organization to achieve results faster and more efficiently, creatively, and profitably.
A Simple Framework, Focused on Results
Effective working relationships in an increasingly diverse environment require us to first develop a deeper understanding of ourselvesour own cultural biases, values, personality styles, communication style preferences, etc.and then attempt to understand these same aspects of our colleagues and clients. With our similarities and differences clearly articulated, the next step becomes much easier: develop practical strategies for adapting our styles and connecting more productively with others so we can achieve our business goals together.
