Understanding Cultural Differences: Germans, French and Americans (Hall)

Human resource management, at home and abroad, means assisting the corporation’s most valuable asset-its people.Understanding Cultural Differences: Germans, French and Americans contributes to this effort by explaining the cultural context in which corporations in Germany, France and the U.S. operate and how misunderstandings arise among employees from each country. Based on interviews with top German, French, and American executives and on extensive research in intercultural relations, Edward T. Hall and Mildred Reed Hall offer insights to each country’s unique approach to business and practical advice on day-to-day transactions in international business exchanges.Designed for Americans, Germans, and French alike, this book examines all three countries both individually and in relation to each other, covering topics like concepts of time, communication styles, cultural values, psychological mindsets, stereotypes, business etiquette, and the physical distances between individuals when they interact. The Halls emphasize behavior you can expect in the social and business culture of each country, pointing out possible pitfalls in understanding and communication, and offer insightful advice for coping. A model for cross-cultural analysis, Understanding Cultural Differences is a valuable guide for American, German, and French business executives.
