The Culture Map: Decoding How People Think, Lead, and Get Things Done Across Cultures Paperback – 1 January 2016
Enhance your purchase
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.

I start using a lot of tips from the book in my daily life at work. And I see the difference.
The book is written by the author, who deeply understands the topic and is passionate about it. I loved also the style, which makes the reading well balanced - enjoyable as well as informative.
It really helped me see things in a different way, not just black and white (but more like “it seems black/white from where I’m standing culturally”)
I definitely recommend reading this book, not only for working individuals but for everyone in multicultural groups, or even having friends all over the world. There are so many things you can take from this book! I have already recommended it to many friends and colleagues.
(Also, I think it could be a good gift to your manager if you think it might help your multi-cultural team !)
It certainly opens your mind and makes you realise how different cultures are (not just East and West but also for countries that are right next to each other for example.
Just read it
