Why do some international managers succeed while nearly half of their U.S. counterparts fail? According to insider Elizabeth Marx , the answer is culture shock—the failure to adjust to people with different motivations, behaviors, and ways of making decisions.

About the Author:

Dr. Elisabeth Marx is a Director of Norman Broadbent International, the world-wide executive search company. She focuses on the search for psychological development of international executives and carries out research on boardroom issues. Based in London, she works throughout Europe and the United States and lectures on management topics internationally. Her work on management issues is frequently covered in the national and international press as well as on radio and television. She trained in psychology at the University of Maburg (Germany), gained her doctorate at Oxford University and was previously a lecturer in psychology at the National University of Singapore.

From Booklist:

Marx defines culture shock as "the experience of foreignness," and calls it both an occupational hazard and an opportunity. She sees its effects in her work as director of international consultancy for the executive search firm Norman Broadbent Selection. She also experienced it firsthand when, as a psychologist, she went to Britain to complete her postgraduate studies. Designed as a "self-coaching guide," Marx's book examines the phenomenon of culture shock as she details the three sides of the "culture shock triangle": emotions, thinking, and social skills and identity. She offers coping strategies for moving from euphoria to depression to contentment, from stereotyping to culturally effective thinking, and from national to transnational social skills and an international identity. Marx also outlines practical steps one can take to further a successful international career, summarizing characteristics of the world's main business cultures and considering the impact on one's personal life and family.
