"When Cultures Collide: Leading Across Cultures" by Richard D. Lewis is a fascinating study of people from 90 countries across 10 groups of cultures from all over the World. His meticulous study relates to: A. Different Countries in Different Worlds; B. Managing and Leading Different Cultures and C, Getting to Know Each Other. In this section he takes us through the 10 different cultural groups spreading from North to South and East to West.

Having visited or worked in 31 of the 94 countries, over the last three decades, in my business career, I can relate totally with what Richard Lewis writes about. The details given in the book are startlingly real. In each country we read about their history. The cultures and values are given their due respect. Concepts of Leadership and Status are described to readers, so that one understands how important these are to achieve a successful business relationship. This continues into sections on Cultural Factors in Communication... Read more
When Cultures Collide is an excellent read. Working in an international company with an incredibly culturally diverse workforce is a challenge. This book helped me to see patterns of communication to improve my skills in moving projects forward and getting things done. What I love about this book is that it is not necessary to read from cover to cover all at once. If you know a particular culture and language you will be negotiating with, you can dive in to that section of the book for some pre-business preparation. The author's insight has been very helpful in helping me bridge the gap!
When Cultures Collide is a handy cross-cultural reference book to have when you are required to adapt interpersonally in order to get things done with others from around the globe. I've been fortunate to travel around the world and LIVE (not just visit) on four continents. A cursory review of Lewis' written observations of those cultures 8've interactex with proved insightful. I've not yet worked out how to read the Communication Pattern diagrams, though, which was a key feature of why I bought the book. It would have proved helpful if Lewis provided an up front, user friendly explanation of how these "work."
