Jack Covert Selects - Building Cross-Cultural Competence

By 800-CEO-READ, published January 5, 2001, at 3:48 PM in Jack Covert Selects

Building Cross-Cultural Competence: How to Create Wealth from Conflicting Value by Charles Hampden-Turner & Fons Trompenaars, Yale University Press, 375 Pages, $29,95 Hardcover, November 2000, ISBN 0300084978 Because I'm human and a slacker at heart, "Building Cross-Cultural Competence" is not the kind of book I usually consider for JCS. It is from a University press (read: dry and boring), is scholarly (read: dry and boring), is on a subject that couldn't be interesting, (read: dry and boring) and is a physically large book (read: dry, boring AND time-consuming). HOWEVER, before I completely turn you off, let me tell you about what I learned: to overlook this book is to make a BIG mistake.
