Cultural Intelligence: Living and Working Globally (2nd Ed., Revised and Updated)
In today's global economy, the ability to interact effectively across cultures is a fundamental job requirement for just about everyone. But it's impossible to learn the customs and traits of every single culture with which you might come into contact. Cultural Intelligence teaches a universal set of techniques that will allow you to adapt quickly to and thrive in any cultural environment by disabling the cultural cruise control that makes you unaware of how your culture affects your perceptions. By using these techniques, you'll develop a repertoire of skills appropriate to different intercultural situations, including understanding the interplay of race and gender with culture and enhancing appreciation for diversity.
