Thought about this thread when I read an article in Today, or actually, the NY Times which is in the Saturday editions of Today, the only local paper I read. I have a few lying about which I hadn't finished yet.

Wherever your work leads you, here are a few tips for working effectively with other cultures.

Turns out there are two articles on Erin Meyer.

The article seemed familiar and sure enough was an episode on a podcast I'd heard recently about the same thing.

I'm generally suspect about things like this as more often than not they turn out to be some superficial expat's recounts from a limited experience set, but not in this case - she's articulate and seems well-versed in her subject matter.

Transcript and audio podcast
Welcome to the HBR IdeaCast from Harvard Business Review. I’m talking today with Erin Meyer, an Affiliate Professor of Organizational Management at INSEAD. She’s the author of the book, The Culture Map, and of the HBR article, “Navigating the Cultural Minefield.”
