How to uncover the hidden cultural values of your global colleagues – and of yourself.
An iceberg is a commonly used metaphor for talking about culture.
We all know there’s a part of the iceberg that’s above the surface of the water that we can see. But there’s also a lot of the iceberg under the surface of the water that we cannot see.
So, we use the iceberg to symbolize that there are things that are easy to recognize as well as things hidden below the surface that might cause some of the challenges we experience in cross-cultural communication and collaboration.
In the video below, you'll learn about a model called "the Double Iceberg".
You can use the model to uncover the hidden cultural values of your global colleagues and of yourself, which is a great starting point for improving your cross-cultural communication and collaboration.
If you try out the Double Iceberg Model – or already know it and have used the model – I would love to hear about it! Email me at email@example.com.
I look forward to reading your input!
