Inter-Cultural Intelligence: from surviving to thriving in the Global Space, by Marco Blankenburgh.
We are excited that at last, we have the opportunity to share with you what we have learned and how we are convinced that a radical new way of thinking is required if we want to deal with inter-cultural complexity in a way that allows us to channel the energy it unleashed so that we can use it to our benefit.
Moving between cultures has always been a challenge. Humanity has tried to master this by providing dos and don’ts lists for cultures foreign to us, teaching us how to hand over business cards in the appropriate fashion or how to shake hands the right way - but this only helps us to survive. If we’re going to thrive in the global space, we need to move beyond ethnocentric and nation-centric stereotyping and come to terms with the intercultural melting pot that surrounds us. We need to learn a language and competencies that support us globally, in all cultural contexts, regardless of where in the world we've just traveled. Inter-Cultural Intelligence is the key. It is the missing piece of the puzzle.
This book - Inter-Cultural Intelligence: from surviving to thriving in the global space is a product of our two decades experience, research and application of the Inter-Cultural Intelligence (ICI) framework and methodology. Solely written to help people who operate in globalized and inter-cultural complex environments to deal with the pains, frustrations, they experience daily in the workplace.
