Put an end to miscommunication and inefficiency—and tap into the strengths of your diverse team.

If you read (or listen to) nothing else on managing across cultures, listen to these ten articles. We've combed through hundreds of Harvard Business Review articles and selected the most important ones to help you manage culturally diverse employees, whether they're dispersed around the world or you're working with a multicultural team in a single location.

This book will inspire you to: develop your cultural intelligence, overcome conflict on a team where cultural norms differ, adopt a common language for more efficient communication, use the diverse perspectives of your employees to find new business opportunities, take varying cultural practices into account when resolving ethical issues, and accommodate and plan for your expatriate employees.
