Cultural intelligence : living and working globally by David C Thomas( )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalization means that managers need to be prepared to do business with people from all kinds of cultures-not only abroad, but at home too. But it's just not possible for managers to learn the particular customs and traits of every culture they might be doing business with. Cultural Intelligence teaches a specific set of techniques that will enable managers to function effectively in any culture. Thomas and Inkson do not provide a list of specific cultural dos and don'ts. Instead, they show how to acquire the kinds of universal global people skills that will allow managers to adapt quickly to, and thrive in, any cultural environment. Everybody has heard of IQ, the measure of the ability to reason. More recently people have become familiar with EQ-emotional intelligence. Cultural intelligence, or CQ, is a new idea that builds on these earlier concepts, but that incorporates the capability to interact effectively across cultures. Cultural Intelligence helps readers acquire a basic understanding of the wide-ranging effects of culture on behavior. They will discover how to disable the "cultural cruise control" that makes them unaware of how their own culture affects their perceptions, and instead learn to pay careful attention, in a reflective and creative way, to cues in cross-cultural situations. Over time, readers will develop a repertoire of behavioral skills appropriate to different intercultural situations and will be able to choose the right ones for a given interaction. Illustrated throughout with real-life stories depicting what is and is not culturally intelligent behavior, Cultural Intelligence will help businesspeople become more effective in making decisions, communicating and negotiating across cultures, leading and motivating others who are culturally different, and managing their international careers."--Publisher's website

Managing expatriates : a return on investment approach by Yvonne McNulty( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 200 million people worldwide now live and work in a country other than their country of origin. Tens of billions of dollars are spent annually by organizations that move expatriates around the world. Yet, despite the substantial costs involved, expatriation frequently results in an unsatisfactory return on investment. The problem overwhelmingly lies in the poor delivery of effective expatriate management. The authors provide a practical 'insider's' guide, revealing why expatriates seek and accept international assignments, how they feel impacted by new forms of remuneration and other working conditions, how international assignments fit in with their longer-term career aspirations, and what complications arise in terms of their families. These are considered in a context that includes the understanding of the drivers for mobility in organizations, emerging trends in global staffing, the global war for talent, and alternative strategies to expatriation

Laugh out loud : a user's guide to workplace humor by Barbara Plester( )

12 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Humor is part and parcel of every workplace. However, while it usually demonstrates and fosters a united, happy workforce, it can at times be deeply damaging and divisive. This book is the first-ever authoritative work on the use and management of humor in the workplace. It is a practical guide for everyone involved: the humorists ('jokers'), the targets (sometimes 'victims'), the observers ('audience') and most of all the managers who have to 'set the tone' and encourage, control and manage humor."--Provided by publisher
