As workplaces become more global, different cultural groups interact more with one another, whether face-to-face or electronically, exposing groups to viewpoints different from their own. The people within these workplaces must learn how to relate to the different qualities and conditions and accommodate them whenever it is possible.
Amid this increased globalization, talent development professionals have a responsibility to prepare their organizations to effectively function in this diverse world. Having a global mindset is not limited to static geographic borders; instead, it encompasses a broader view of culture, diversity, and inclusion. It means raising your awareness of cultural differences and how they shape the beliefs and behaviors of people.
Covering topics ranging from global cultural theories to cultural dynamics and situations to cross-cultural communication, Developing a Global Mindset intends to help prepare talent development professionals to analyze and understand their work from a broader cultural perspective. After reading this book, you will better understand how workplace influences—your own culture of origin, the country culture where you work, your organization’s culture, and the cultures of your colleagues and clients—can cause confusion and conflict. By developing a global mindset, you can embrace new cultures, improve your relationships, and, ultimately, help lead your organization toward its goals.
