Interesting talk from the all hands today, talking about different cultures and at work, from this book https://www.bookdepository.com/Culture-Map-Erin-Meyer/9781610392761
It ended with the note like “you cannot imagine how strong is the culture effect” many were praising the talk after that. (a little context, we have around 100 nationalities in the company)
In my experience as well, I also noticed/experienced these culture clashes at work. For example, imagine there’s no different nationalities, just character: Expressive vs. Unexpressive, and Confrontational vs. Avoidance of Confrontation.
if unexpressive + confrontational might give you relationship and heart problem, then expressive + avoidance of confrontation might give you work and brain problem. It’s impossible to avoid, we better if we learn about it.
