On this Page, I will talk about the most professional tool that I have found on Internet:

The portico of the Temple of Apollo was inscribed in gold letters the injunction that summarized the wisdom and philosophy of Delphi: "Know thyself. Is my opinion that as professionals, we need to know ourselves, in order to optimize the multicultural environment that we interact on a daily basis.

Do you want to know:                      

  1. How your performance compare to Workers from Workers/Specialists from India, China, Canada, United States?!
  2. How is similar; how is different?!
  • The way we are accustomed to working in our countries, most of the time is not the most optimal, and this model below provides the tools to make us excel in a Multicultural environment. These tools will show us how to be better professionals on a Multicultural Environment.

(below, The Lewis Model)



As the 
website explainsThe GlobeSmart Profile provides specific advice to bridge gaps with other cultures and colleagues
  • The Aperian Global Learning Portal is your one-stop-shop to enhance your cultural intelligence
  • Quick access to knowledge on how to conduct business effectively with people from over 80 countries around the globe,

  • Learn your preferred work style and see how you compare with the average profile from any country in GlobeSmart.


What I like about this test is that it allows to see in which area I have similarities to:
 

  1. The country I will do business with, or,
  2. The person in the team that I am working with.
  3. In the XXI century we need to be able to work in a multicultural environment if we want to succeed 

There is NO other way!

 

My final recommendation is:

  1. Create a Profile at GlobeSmart.
  2. Study the Lewis model referenced below.
