Publisher's Summary

In this long-awaited brand-new audiobook recording, an international business expert helps you understand and navigate cultural differences in this insightful and practical guide, perfect for both your work and personal life.

Americans precede anything negative with three nice comments; French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans get straight to the point; Latin Americans and Asians are steeped in hierarchy; Scandinavians think the best boss is just one of the crowd. It's no surprise that when they try and talk to each other, chaos breaks out.

In The Culture Map, INSEAD professor Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain in which people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together. She provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business, and combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice.

SOOOO HELPFUL

This book was incredible. I was enlightened in so many ways. I’ve lived over seas and this reminded me of the struggles but gave positive language and insight to explain things I never could.

Fascinating way of understanding cultural challenges

Erin has a great approach to help us understand different cross cultural challenges. Her methods explain how to deal with different situations in a structural way and concrete manner. As an Indonesian who was born and raised in Indonesia with an eastern family tradition - lived in India, Turkey, and now in France and work regularly in the UK, I encounter these cross cultural challenges in everyday’s life. After listening to this Culture Map audiobook, I feel like I am given the tool to handle the frustrations caused by these cross cultural challenges. Erin offers strategic solutions to be applied effectively in dealing with those challenges. Best audiobook of the year. Thumbs up and bravo Erin!
