The art of crossing cultures by Craig Storti( Book )

58 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,300 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( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 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)

Speaking of India : bridging the communication gap when working with Indians by Craig Storti( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Westerners and Indians are working more closely together and in greater numbers than ever before. The opportunities are vast, but so is the cultural divide. Misunderstandings, misinterpretations, missed deadlines and frustrations can all spring from cultural differences. Any Westerner conducting business with an Indian and any Indian trying to figure out the West will recognize this challenge. Craig Storti has helped more than 20 global companies with just these kinds of issues. With more than a dozen years of experience working between cultures, Storti has trained thousands of employees, interviewed hundreds of managers and identified key cultural touchstones. The result is a powerful series of Best Practices, which are the basis for Speaking of India: Bridging the Communication Gap When Working with Indians. From the different ways that Indians and Westerners use "yes" and "no" to the secrets of a successful, cross-cultural conference call, from the changing status of women in the Indian workplace to the do's and don'ts of daily interaction, this essential guide helps us to realize the potential of working together and understanding each other, whether in the East or in the West! "I know of no other cross-cultural communication expert who can de-mystify the hidden bulk of a culture's 'iceberg' as cogently as Craig Storti does. As he takes you below, a bright light shines on the hidden values and assumptions that govern not only the way a person from that culture communicates, but often the actual content of his message. Your own culture's unique values and communication style are revealed in the contrast. The more aware both parties become of these pitfalls in communicating across cultures, Storti shows clearly, the lower the risk of miscommunication and strained relationships."--Jim Blake, World Learning Inc. "Craig Storti is most famous for his use of cross cultural dialogues to illustrate culture bumps. Having read a lot of his work, I appreciate his great economy of language and overall clarity while still maintaining the ability to do complex topics justice. I think this characteristic is taken even further forward here and the book is an amazingly easy read without ever being simplistic ..."--Tim Hill, dialogin.com 01/05/2008 "India looms as the next big opportunity for Western business, and Storti, a cross-culture communication trainer and consultant, offers advice on how to negotiate the cultural paths to the fattest profits."--Research Book News, February 2008 "Craig Storti provides a straightforward, fact-based and eminently useful guide to culture and communication issues that complicate business between Westerners and Indians. Much of the literature on culture and business is vague and theoretical--so this book stands apart. The author targets the problems that are most likely to arise in commerce, offers detailed real-life examples and shows what practical solutions businesspeople can implement. He is evenhanded in his advice, offering tips to both Westerners and Indians. Most importantly ... he is businesslike in his approach, focused, practical and realistic about what is achievable."--getAbstract.com Contents Foreword Acknowledgments Introduction: "The Worm Has Turned" 1 Indians, Westerners, and the Cultural Lens 2 Communication East and Communication West 3 Yes, No, and Other Problems 4 Management East and Management West 5 The Deference Syndrome 6 Talking Points: The Language Problem 7 Meetings and Conference Calls 8 Women and Men 9 Working With Indians on Virtual Teams 10 Business and Social Etiquette Epilogue Bibliography About the Author Index

The art of doing business across cultures : 10 countries, 50 mistakes, and 5 steps to cultural competence by Craig Storti( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People in other cultures don't always think and act the way you do. If you try to do business your way in their culture, you will make mistakes. And mistakes have consequences. Some will be merely embarrassing, others will be deeply frustrating, and still others will cost you dearly. This book describes 50 common cultural mistakes made in business settings in the form of short (8-10 line) conversations and shows you, 1) that there's always a reason why people do the strange things they do, 2) the reason is almost never to upset you, and 3) there's always a way forward - The Fix. Craig Storti, a nationally known figure in the field of intercultural communications, and author of 7 books, presents and deconstructs conversations between Americans and citizens of 10 of the world's largest economies, the Arab Middle East, Brazil, China, England, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, and Russia. He also provides five easily applicable steps to cultural competence - a framework readers can apply to identify cultural differences and communicate and act more effectively and appropriately. If you are an American doing business in any of the ten locations featured, if you come from one of these countries and work with Americans, or if you do business with any of these folks, this book will save you a great deal of confusion and frustration
