Richard D. Lewis, one of Britain’s foremost linguists; Founder Richard Lewis Communications; Founder Berlitz schools in East Asia, Portugal and Finland; personal tutor to Japanese Imperial family, author of When Cultures Collide, When Teams Collide, and Fish Can’t See Water; Knight Commander of the Order of the Lion of Finland. Cultural differences are frequently the source of misunderstandings between people, countries and businesses. The impact of cultural predispositions in perceptions of nationhood and “self” have far reaching implications for organizations working across the globe. Understanding these factors and predicting how differing cultures will interact in terms of communication, cooperation and decision-making is a source of geopolitical advantage, particularly in today’s interconnected and inflammable world.
