Our Content Methodology
Most people hear about culture and immediately think about behaviors—a list of do's
and don'ts by culture and country. For example, one might think about bowing in
Japan or knowing which gestures to avoid in countries around the world.
And while gestures and protocol are certainly important, they are only one aspect of understanding cultures. To truly understand culture, we need to go beyond the lists of do's and don'ts. We need to understand what makes people think and act as they do. Understanding the “why” behind a culture is essential.
What do we mean by culture? In essence, it is a shared set of attitudes,
beliefs, values, mindsets, and practices of a group of people. Culture includes the
behavior pattern and norms of that group—the rules, the assumptions, the
perceptions, and the logic and reasoning specific to that group. Culture is really
the collective programming of our minds from birth. It’s this collective programming
that distinguishes one group of people from another.
Cultural awareness most commonly refers to having an understanding of another culture’s values and perspective.
Most people think that the language barrier is the only factor. But it’s more.
Communicating with different cultures requires an understanding of how culture
influences communication tones, styles, and preferences. Culture affects everything
and may explain why your multicultural work teams are failing to communicate and
collaborate well despite technical synergies.
Culture impacts a number of business and management functions including global strategy, business development, mergers and acquisitions, sales and marketing, communications, training programs, customer service, operations, human resources, and relocation.
Understanding how to conduct business with people from other cultures and across borders enhances the overall effectiveness of global initiatives—affecting profitability and impacting the bottom line.
