First of all, this is about doing business. Doing better business. Secondly, it is about learning from each other. Regardless of our respective origins, heritage, influences or perspectives. Call it diversity, if you will, and how to use the diverseness among us to learn and do better. Practically speaking, I work with leaders in organizations that are doing business in intercultural settings. I’ve delivered results for top companies in Europe and am now a Senior Associate for De Baak, which since 1948 is the premier training & development institute in the Netherlands. My clients are facing challenges in 1) getting their managers from different backgrounds to work effectively with each other, 2) are having trouble adapting their company culture to new, internationals markets or 3) are struggling in getting their different parts to work together effectively as a whole. In helping managers to be more interculturally adept, I find it most effective to help them be open to 1) mapping, 2) bridging, then 3) leveraging their differences.
