Giving Feedback Across Cultures

What works in Stuttgart won’t work in Shanghai.

Belinda MJ.B‘s insight:

I am particularly interested in this topic since I specialize in assisting executives, expatriates and individuals to succeed in a global environment. Knowledge of the cultural rules in addition to the mentor and the adjustment of the behavior are a great start but might provide limited results and synergies.

 

I have found very important for my clients to know themselves from the inside out by assessing and challenging their own values, behaviors and belief systems prior to take an assignment in a multicultural team or abroad. Ultimately, by going through this process, we evaluate how much the difficulties they experience in life or at work are related to perception which is based on someone’s background, education,culture…

 

With this mindset, leaders and managers working in a new cultural environment are willing to listen, to accept a different perspective as an opportunity and to be authentic global leaders.
