The art of crossing cultures by Craig Storti( )

63 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 3,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adjusting to a new culture and getting along with the local people challenge everyone who lives and works abroad. Whether in business, diplomacy, education, or as a long-term visitor abroad, anyone can be blindsided by a lack of international knowledge and experience and be caught at a disadvantage. In this completely revised and expanded edition of the classic The Art of Crossing Cultures, Craig Storti shows what it takes to encounter a new culture head-on and succeed." "This guidebook to bridging the cultural divide -- incorporates a sampling of the writings of some of the world's greatest writers, poets, and observers of the human condition. Through the vivid perceptions and words of such literary legends as Noel Coward, Graham Greene, Rudyard Kipling, E.M. Forster, Mark Twain, Evelyn Waugh, and others, Storti paints an intimate portrait of the personal challenges of adjusting to another culture: anticipating differences, managing the temptation to withdraw, and gradually adjusting expectations of behavior to fit reality." "This timely new edition focuses special attention on how to deal with country and culture shock and includes many new examples of cross-cultural misunderstandings -- particularly in business. Storti breaks new ground with his easy-to-understand model of cultural adjustment and tips on how to master the process and develop adaptive strategies -- the heart of the cross-cultural experience.

Figuring foreigners out : a practical guide by Craig Storti( )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concepts at the heart of intercultural communication are addressed in a step-by-step manner and include individualism and collectivism, monochronic and polychronic concepts of time, verbal and nonverbal communication styles, and power distance relationships in the workplace. Cross-cultural dialogues are used as pre- and post-tests to analyze the ideas introduced. The exercises presented are simple, clear, and enlightening. Culture has an invisible dimension (assumptions, values, and beliefs) and a visible dimension (behavior) and these two dimensions relate to each other as cause and effect, respectively. Four stages of cultural awareness are defined and discussed. Chapter titles are: (1) "What is Culture?"; (2) "Building Blocks of Culture"; (3) "Styles of Communication"; (4)"Culture in the Workplace"; and (5) "The Cross-Cultural Perspective." The book concludes with an epilogue and books for further information on cultural differences and intercultural communication. (Bt)

Cross-cultural dialogues - 74 brief encounters with cultural difference by Craig Storti( )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this update of his classic book, Craig Storti takes readers through 74 brief dialogues between an American and a person from another culture. Short as these dialougues are, they have buried within them at least one cultural breach which the reader is challenged to figure out. In the course of these conversations, readers come face to face with the fact that many of their most cherished instincts don't travel very well, and what is expected and understood in one culture may be shocking and incomprehensible in another - leading inevitably to all manner of misunderstandings, and these misunderstandings, in turn, often result in a wide variety of unpleasant emotional and practical consequences, from hurt feelings and missed opportunities to failed negotiations and lost profits, to anger and hostility. But, if we could stop assuming that other people are like us-if we could begin to believe that we don't necessarily understand our cultural counterparts in social or business settings, we would be well on our way to avoiding cultural misunderstandings and the problems they give rise to. That, in a nutshell, is the purpose of this book: to alert readers to the misunderstandings lurking in the most common interactions we have with people from other cultures-and help us take the first and most important step down the road to cultural sensitivity
