National Culture, what Prof. Geert Hofstede* refers to as "software of the mind/mental programming," is a critical variable that guides peoples' actions and reactions. Cultural misunderstandings can be counterproductive to individual development, organizational effectiveness and profits, as well as international relations.
Understanding one's own national culture and the impact of this on the actions of others is essential for effective global business interactions. The Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire™ will provide you with insights about yourself and provide you a better understanding of how your cultural preferences, as well as the cultural preferences of others, impact working relationships. It will also provide you with a framework for understanding diverse approaches to effective workplace interactions such as problem-solving, working in teams and managing projects that will drive business results.
