A practical guide for the international manager. In today's working environment, many different cultural identities meet and interact on a daily basis. Cultural complexity will not go away. Diversity challenges us to question perspectives and unconscious routines and, if embraced, can be used to generate great competitive advantages. The power inherent in such diversity can boost team productivity and challenge the status quo. At the same time, greater efforts are required to create team cohesion and achieve agreement on the best working procedures. Cultural dynamics call for inventive leadership, which regulates mechanisms of exclusion and resolves cultural misunderstandings. Managing Cultural Dynamics provides the reader with the language and the tools needed to release the potential creativity of culturally diverse teams. This book does not seek to offer ready-made solutions for unique situations, but rather presents a clear framework and practical interventions with which a safe, challenging and effective team culture can be created within any business. Bringing together the crucial ingredients for excellent teamwork: trust, participation and team loyalty.

Werken in een interculturele omgeving, binnen Nederland of daarbuiten, geeft een unieke dynamiek aan teamwerk, een dynamiek die ervoor zorgt dat multiculturele teams excelleren of onderpresteren. Verschillen kunnen creativiteit doen bloeien, maar zorgen ook voor onzekerheid. En dat is spannend; soms zelfs bedreigend, omdat de machtsbalansen schuiven. Goed leiderschap is dan noodzakelijk. Maar hoe stuur je als leider de culturele dynamiek in een groep? En waar moet je op letten? Normaal is Anders! geeft antwoord op deze vragen. Jitske Kramer biedt geen recept voor unieke situaties, maar ontwikkelt een helder model om de dynamiek in een team te sturen, en laat zien hoe je een teamcultuur kunt creƫren die prettig, passend en effectief is. Het resultaat: onderling vertrouwen, participatie en teamloyaliteit; noodzakelijke ingrediƫnten voor excellent teamwerk.
