This book addresses one of the most critical issues facing global business leaders and the multicultural workforce – how to work and relate effectively in the intercultural contexts. The author presents business professionals, practitioners and academics with the Collaborative Intercultural Competence Model. Based on solid theoretical assumptions and real intercultural experiences, this model is to help professionals work more effectively across and within cultures. This book expands the traditional presentation of existing knowledge by providing a unified discussion of intercultural communication and its conceptual foundations. The book offers readers with a contemporary insight into the intercultural competence phenomenon and highlights the basis for its experience-based inquiry, assessment and development. A distinctive feature of Intercultural Competence in Organizations is its comprehensive coverage of the intercultural competence framework from both communication and organizational behavior perspectives. This book does not cover traditional areas of international business, international management, global management strategy and policy and cross-cultural comparative management, but focuses on theoretical foundations of intercultural competence and intercultural competence research and practice. The author describes the complex nature of intercultural competence in a straightforward format which helps professionals, practitioners and students to envision a variety of intercultural situations in which they may behave competently. Thus, the conceptual acumen of this title is to understand the premises of intercultural competence, embrace its theoretical assumptions, see its practical applicability, and advance individual intercultural competence. Featuring examples and skill development exercises, this book will be appealing to professionals, practitioners, students, academics and policy makers in the field of international business, management and communication. “Dr. Matveev challenges his readers to develop their intercultural competence so as to make themselves more effective, more humane and more socially skilled in a world that increasingly involves extensive contact across various groups of people.” --from the Foreword by Richard W. Brislin, University of Hawaii “Dr. Matveev creates an awareness of intercultural competence by exposing the reader to the theoretical concepts and practical tools. Business people and academics will use this book to recognize and leverage the benefits of cultural diversity.” --Berthold Mukuahima, Director of Human Capital, Ohlthaver & List Group, Namibia “Dr. Matveev reveals how intercultural competence of professional multicultural teams helps in achieving corporate competitive advantage and longevity in a challenging globalized world. This book is very useful for managers, scholars and students who want to elevate the efficacy of intercultural relationship in their professional and personal lives.” --Srečko Čebron, Management Board Member, Sava Reinsurance Company, Slovenia /div

Today’s global citizens operate business and management endeavors on a global scale. Globalization generates an increasing demand for effective communication in diverse cultural contexts and challenges the relevance of culture in operating businesses in the global village. Communication differences are apparent in many scenarios. Expatriates of international organizations operating abroad adopt their native cultural values to motivate employees of foreign cultures with an entirely different perspective. They use one culture’s motives to move people from other cultures. In global marketing communication, the communicators use values systems of their native culture to develop advertising for other cultures. They use categorizations of one culture to describe others. Such divergence in attitudes, perspectives and priorities of suppliers, and customers with different cultural backgrounds have led to many project failures in international organizations. An in-depth understanding of cultural backgrounds and the potential impact on communication of the people one is interacting with can increase the probability of business success among investors, managers, entrepreneurs and employees operating in diverse cultures. However, effective cross cultural business communication needs to recognize and adopt an interdisciplinary perspective in understanding the cultural forces (Leung, K. et al., 2005). Therefore, we need a multidisciplinary paradigm to carry on effective and successful business communication in our contemporary global village. 本书构建有效的跨文化商务沟通理论模型,讨论企业商务战略、宏观社会文化、组织文化在构建企业沟通战略中的作用与影响,研究语言与文化在信息编码与解码过程中的作用,以及沟通中的有效语言策略和模糊语言策略。同时,本书结合理论模型,提出了有效的跨文化营销沟通战略、广告沟通战略和谈判沟通战略,并提供了提高沟通效率与效果的技能和方法。

Winner of ABC's award for Distinguished Publication for 2006 This book explores effective written communication across cultures both theoretically and practically. Specifically it conceptualizes cross-cultural genre study and compares English and Chinese business writing collected from Australia, New Zealand and China. It is also one of those inspired by contrastive rhetoric but has contributed innovatively and uniquely by incorporating research findings from genre analysis, in particular, the sociocognitive genre perspective into this cross-cultural study. On the one hand, the endeavor represents an in-depth theoretical exploration by considering not only discourse community and cognitive structuring, but also the deep semantics of genre and intertextuality, while broadening genre study by integrating insights from cross-cultural communication as well as the Chinese perspectives. On the other hand, the book also addresses pragmatic issues. As a particular feature, it solicits professional members' intercultural viewpoints; thus confirming the shared social "stock of knowledge" employed in the culturally defined writing conventions. Last but not least, this book explores the implications for genre education and training, and develops an appropriate model for cross-cultural genre learning, which encourages learning through legitimate peripheral participation and intercultural learning in business organizations.

Lost in Translation zwischen Peking und London Die junge Chinesin Zhuang reist zum ersten Mal in den Westen und taucht in eine fremde Welt ein. Sprache und Umgangsformen, Essen und Trinken, Liebe und Sex – alles ist befremdlich, überraschend und manchmal unbegreiflich. Ebenso amüsante wie erhellende Missverständnisse verbinden sich zu einem rasanten Verwirrspiel zwischen Ost und West und Mann und Frau. Ein außergewöhnliches Lesevergnügen! Als Zhuang in London ankommt, fühlt sie sich vollkommen verloren. Ihre Eltern haben sie in den Westen geschickt, damit sie Englisch lernt. Doch es ist nicht nur die fremde Sprache, die ihr Mühe macht. Sie sieht sich mit unfreundlichen Taxifahrern, ungenießbarem Essen und seltsamen Umgangsformen konfrontiert. Unbekannte Wörter, ungewöhnliche Begebenheiten und verblüffende Beobachtungen hält sie in einem kleinen Notizbuch fest, das zum Rettungsanker im Meer der Missverständnisse wird. Geborgen fühlt sich Zhuang nur im Kino – dort begegnet sie schließlich auch der Liebe. Doch im Westen erweist sich diese als ebenso kompliziert wie der Alltag. Xiaolu Guo inszeniert den Kulturschock erhellend und voller Witz. „Kleines Wörterbuch für Liebende“ ist ein kluges, unterhaltsames Verwirrspiel um kulturelle Unterschiede und nicht miteinander zu vereinbarende Lebensformen. Zugleich ist es eine zärtliche, bittersüße Liebesgeschichte.
