Why do people from certain cultures have little regard for time? Why might working overtime reflect poorly on you in Scandinavia? Why should you avoid using your left hand when interacting with someone from the Arab world? You'll find out the answers to these and other intriguing questions in “Customs of the World – Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are.”

This audio/video course explains how thousands of years of history and customs create differences in cultural behavior that may seem strange or rude to some and perfectly acceptable to others.

The Course features a Guidebook and 24 lectures on 12 DVDs. Presented by Professor David Livermore, President of the Cultural Intelligence Center (Michigan). He is an international advisor to Fortune 500 companies and governments around the world.

The first half of the course analyzes 10 cultural values that researchers have identified as helpful for comparing cultures. You’ll see how these “sophisticated stereotypes” or “archetypes” play out in day-to-day lives. For example, you’ll explore different cultures that adhere to clock time, as in the US; and cultures that operate on event time, as in Brazil. You’ll identify the differences between “being” cultures such as in Mexico; and “doing” cultures as in Japan.

The second half looks at 10 cultural clusters around the world, including Nordic, Germanic, Arab, Sub-Saharan African. This information provides strategic insight into how to be more effective as you live, work, and travel in our globalized world.

Sample lectures: Culture Matters; Developing Cultural Intelligence; Tim Punctuality versus Relationships; Direct versus Indirect Communication; Being versus Doing Lifestyle; Social Norms; Anglo Cultures; Germanic Cultures; Central Asian Cultures; Latin American Cultures; Arab Cultures; Cultural Intelligence for Life.

The Great Courses makes lifelong learning and personal enrichment available to anyone, anywhere with lectures by the world’s greatest experts. No homework, no tests, no pressure. Learn at your own pace while exercising, commuting, or just relaxing.

Like new, excellent condition. Exact cash only.
