The mindful international manager: how to work effectively across cultures (second edition)

1 July 2014

The authors rightly point out there are “fewer and fewer managers who can restrict their work to a local and familiar environment”. Even for those who have stuck close to home, it’s vital to be able to think globally as employee communities become more mobile and international.

The second edition addresses some fresh, key issues such as: how to balance personal and cultural values against those of other cultures when making difficult decisions; how to support people working across the world, often remotely; and how to develop as leaders in a world that has different visions of good leadership?

A route map for international team management is detailed over the course of 13 chapters with readers being encouraged to complete short exercises to explore their own competencies and awareness.

Pros: Jargon free, well laid out, with key competencies reinforced throughout

Cons: Requires time and attention, otherwise won’t offer much value
