Do you want to learn more about how to deal with cultural differences?
Generally speaking, the world can be divided into two types of cultures: individualistic and collectivist. If you come from an individualistic culture, you’re more likely to be task oriented than relationship oriented. By contrast, if you come from a collectivist culture, you’re more likely to focus on relationships than tasks.

Do you always focus on content while your colleague wants to know every last detail of your personal life? Or does your conversation partner recoil when you ask about his or her plans for the weekend? Cultural differences may be at the heart of this mismatch. Understanding if a culture focuses more on relationships (collectivist) or content (individualistic) can give you valuable information on important matters, like how to deal with a new customer. Did you know that two-thirds of the world's cultures focus more on relationships than on content? In this learning journey, you'll learn what that means for dealing with these diverse cultures.
