The Hidden Cultural Dimension You Need to Understand When Doing Business Overseas

This podcast is something different from the regular Interview podcasts that I do.

I wanted to pay more attention to Hofstede’s fourth and most difficult dimension: Uncertainty Avoidance.

Time and again explaining this dimension is difficult to do.

A lot of people link it only to official rules. But that is not enough. Uncertainty Avoidance covers a whole lot more.

Listen to this podcast and find out what else is linked to this complex cultural dimension.

If you want to learn more, why not get the complete book on Uncertainty Avoidance. Exclusively available on Kindle by Amazon. Click here to get it now.

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!
