About This Week’s GuestPellegrino Riccardi

Pellegrino Riccardi

Pellegrino Riccardi is a Cross-Cultural Expert, Keynote Speaker, People-Watcher.

In this interview he hits the nail right on the head: Cultural Differences isn’t about them (the others), but it is about YOU. As soon as you understand that your cultural battle is half won as well as your way to becoming culturally competent.

His three tips to become more culturally competent are:

  1. Learn how you’re being perceived by others. Other people and other cultures. Be open to that feedback; solicit it even.
  2. Learn about people’s positive intentions. Everyone, no matter what they do, has a positive intention with what they do.
  3. Consider what you’re willing to change about yourself in order to become more culturally competent.

“Culture is about YOU. Not about the other.”

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!
