Many Cultures, One Team challenges team leaders and members to reflect on their cultural assumptions to improve their cultural metacognition. The book provides key advice concerning engagement, productivity, and human process interactions on teams. Throughout the book there are scenarios based upon the author’s training and consulting experiences that help the reader reinforce the key points and ideas.
“We traditionally publish technical books,” says Steve Hoberman, President of Technics Publications. “But we also recognize that primarily because of technology, project teams are becoming increasingly composed of individuals from multiple countries, and companies are increasingly depending on companies from other countries as suppliers, partners, and customers. Therefore, there is a very strong need for this book, which raises awareness of cultural differences and challenges the reader to see the world through different eyes.”
Catherine says, “This book describes the journey that team leaders and consultants take when they support high performance global project teams. It is an essential aid for anyone who leads, is a member of, consults with, or supports global teams. The content addresses organizational practices as well as team member cultural values and how these impact (negatively or positively) the success of the team and team outcomes.”
Many Cultures, One Team is available through all booksellers including Amazon in both print and electronic formats such as Kindle. It is also available through the publisher’s website:
