Welcome to my world of Culture Power Solutions
What is the recipe for a perfect storm? Simple! Put together a team of German, French, Japanese, Italian, Spanish people... or any any nationalities. Then, ask them to work together and to deliver. But before all that, don't forget to secure a stock of anti-depressants.
You'll definitely need them! Not because of their business knowledge, local experience, or even education.
Those aspects will be perfectly fine – as will they, while working in their own cultures.
Working internationally, or with people from other nationalities, is often a shock to many, simply because of the differences in world views, which may create friction...
I've seen this perfect storm far too many times to count. During my 24 exciting years of adventure in Philip Morris, I spent 17 of them working outside of my home market. These fascinating years include working in Poland, Ukraine, Dubai, China, Russia, Indonesia, and Hong Kong.
