Description

This new book explores important issue of cross-cultural management from a variety of perspectives, including theoretical and research perspectives. It considers the impact of knowledge, experience, and exposure of cross-cultural differences in developing global viewpoint and citizenship in the corporate workplace. The volume throws light on the emerging concepts of building global citizens who are willing to think beyond boundaries of place, identity, and category, and recognize all human beings as their equals while respecting humanity’s inherent diversity.

The effective use of cross-cultural teams can provide a source of experience and innovative thinking to enhance the competitive position of organizations. However, cultural differences can interfere with the successful completion of goals in today’s multicultural global business community. To achieve project goals and avoid cultural misunderstandings, managers should be culturally sensitive and promote creativity and motivation through flexible leadership. The chapter authors in Cross-Cultural Exposure and Connections: Evolving Global Businesses and Global Citizens look at these challenges by reviewing and conducting empirical studies, roundtables, and focus discussions.
