Managing through a Mirror Successful business communication where cultures meet Why do the Indians keep saying all is fine, even when they miss every milestone? Why do customers in Brazil want to meet you so often before any deal gets closed? Why is it so hard to motivate your people in Russia to be proactive? And why is everything in Saudi Arabia so chaotic? When confronted with cultural differences, we blame the other party for being so different. And we are convinced that all problems would vanish if they would only behave as we do. A successful intercultural manager needs, above all, to look in the mirror and try to understand how he is perceived by others. In addition, he needs a solid comprehension of how other cultures work, and a well-filled toolbox to communicate effectively. This practical book addresses all three aspects: reflection, understanding and communication. It puts all this practical advice in the context of the managers daily work: managing teams, managing performance, managing change, and carrying out negotiations. Although built on a strong theoretical foundation, the book is written to be of practical help at the workplace: it contains 100 tips that the Western manager can apply in his daily work. The examples and cases are derived from the real-life experience of the author, and provide a valuable guide for communication when cultures meet.

A Mirror for Managers

A Mirror for Managers

Although simulation is among the least common of the many methods consultants employ to stimulate team development, realistic simulation can help in the diagnosis of management teams.

Although simulation is among the least common of the many methods consultants employ to stimulate team development, realistic simulation can help in the diagnosis of management teams. Simulations fill a gap in the repertoire of data collection methods for organizational diagnosis and development by affording an opportunity for direct observation under controlled conditions. A management simulation is an exercise that produces a sample of behavior from which managers can derive an accurate picture of themselves both as individuals and as a group. Just as vital, however, is the infrastructure built around the simulation to collect, assemble and interpret data. Before simulation, managers should ensure: entry meetings, efforts to increase readiness, experiments with experiential methods, the experience of beginning with a low to moderate risk, relationship building, and an understanding of the team in context. After simulation, insight and energy should be channeled into concrete plans for action. To illustrate the application of these principles, the major part of this report focuses on a case study of the experiences of the management of a public agency in a medium-sized midwestern city with the simulation game, "Looking Glass." Appendices provide additional information on "Looking Glass" and feedback from the case study. A list of references completes the document. (JB)

Just as people don¿t need another book on the health benefits of increasing exercise and eating more vegetables, leaders don¿t need another book on good management practices. What¿s missing is an exploration of the links between knowledge about leadership principles and the personal values and attitudes that underlie them.Hanging the Mirror: The Discipline of Reflective Leadership embarks on such an exploration. Viewing leadership growth as a profoundly transformative process, Hanging the Mirror challenges leaders to unfreeze their current thinking, reconsider their operating assumptions, and adopt new behaviors.Drawing on behavioral research as well as our 25 years of management consulting experience, Hanging the Mirror challenges leaders to take an honest look at their behavior and the way it shapes the human systems they head. It suggests that a searching reexamination of fundamental convictions and beliefs is key to bridging the divide between knowledge and action.Hanging the Mirror lays out a discipline of reflective leadership that any leader can adopt. It is a process of gaining self-knowledge and developing self-mastery with the goal of becoming an ever more effective leader of people. It prompts leaders to:¿ Candidly identify the values and beliefs that shape their behavior¿ Objectively compare those values to what is known, through research, about leading people effectively¿ Look at their moment-by-moment leadership choices (their beliefs in action) to determine whether they truly believe what they think they believe¿ Rethink beliefs that run counter to knowledge and make different knowledge-based leadership choices.Eschewing quick fix solutions, Hanging the Mirror demonstrates that the preeminent challenge facing leadership is improving daily choices through ongoing reflection and contemplation.Because lasting transformation is never achieved without effort, Hanging the Mirror does not aim to be an ¿easy¿ read. It seeks to challenge, stretch and even confront its readers. But herein lies its value. As one of our clients once told another, ¿This isn¿t for everyone. They push and push and then push some more. But if you¿re ready for it, it¿s like nothing you¿ve seen before.¿
