  1. If you can: Travel. But travel in a specific way; attempt to go out of your comfort zone.
  2. You can do the above by eating the food that is on the local menu; look at the local customs.
  3. Emerge yourself; talk to the locals; use the view words that you know in a foreign language

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
