Erin Meyer: Navigating the Cultural Minefield

Erin Meyer: Navigating the Cultural Minefield

Erin Meyer explains how to dramatically increase business success by improving your ability to understand the cultural drivers of colleagues, clients, and suppliers from different countries. 

Erin explores the modern business world where people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together.  It is not always easy to bridge cultural gaps.  Management styles stem from habits developed over a lifetime, which makes them hard to change.  By sidestepping common stereotypes and learning the decode the behaviour of other cultures, we can avoid giving (and taking!) offence and better capitalise on the strengths of increased diversity.

For executives charged with leading diverse teams, this masterclass is an invaluable opportunity to work closely with a recognised leader in the field.  Learn how the world’s most successful global leaders navigate the complexities of cultural differences in a multi-cultural environment. Erin will offer cutting-edge insight and practical strategies to improve the effectiveness of projects that span the globe.

Erin Meyer is a professor at INSEAD, one of the world’s leading international business schools. Her work focuses on how the world’s most successful global leaders navigate the complexities of cultural differences in an international environment.

Living and working in Africa, Europe, and the United States prompted Erin Meyer’s study of the communication patterns and business systems of different parts of the world.  Her framework allows international executives to pinpoint their leadership preferences, and compare their methods to the management styles of other cultures.

Her work has appeared in Harvard Business Review, Singapore Business Times and Forbes.com. In 2013 the Thinkers 50 named her as one of 30 up-and-coming thinkers and in October 2013 British Airways Business Life magazine on their list of “Ten Dons to Watch”.

Erin is the author of The Culture Map where she identified eight dimensions that together capture most of the differences within and among cultures.  She recently developed a new assessment tool which allows you to see where you fall on the eight scales.
