Hi everyone, in line with this month's 'International Assignment' article, How to Manage Cultural Surprises, would love to hear your examples of cultural surprises - things that happen whilst you are / were on international assignment that caught you off guard, or you simply couldn't have been prepared for them. I'm sure my example of the Bangkok theatre is but a tiny spec of what everyone 'out there' has experienced! This month's article can be read at: http://www.managingamericans.com/blogFeed/How-To-Manage-Cultural-Differences-That-Come-As-A-Surprise.htm my best to you all! deb
