is your Other-Culture business successful?

To develop a winning workforce that produces,
here are 16 questions that businesses and managers can consider!

Wait – I only see 8 questions?
Double duty: Be sure to turn them around
and provide your Home Culture’s answers to these questions.

Cultural-difference factors that may impact EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

  1. Who is recognized as being responsible?
  2. How does the Other culture handle conflict?
  3. What is considered motivation in the Other culture?
  4. How is task completion viewed in the Other culture?

Cultural-difference factors that may affect TASK COMPLETION

  1. What resources are available in the Other culture?
  2. Are the rewards associated with task completion appropriate, as judged by the Other culture?
  3. What notions of time does the Other culture have?
  4. In the Other culture, how do relationship-building and task-oriented work typically interact?
