Kelly Riggs, Robby Riggs

For the first time in history, the younger generation has something more to offer an employer than enthusiasm. In the past, a new employee was dependent upon years of service, but now digital technology and social media have exploded into the workplace. The younger generation possess the knowledge and the practical experience to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of social media and digital tools.Unfortunately, most companies, led primarily by old-school Baby Boomers, have tenaciously clung to the old-world order. The reasons are as varied as the companies, but they are all, sadly, proving to be lethal. The technology revolution has impacted more than the new generation of employees. It has created a completely new set of leadership challenges - time compression, complexity, pace of change, and increasing levels of distraction - all created by the tether of technology. The CounterMentor is the new leader who taps into the wealth of knowledge available from the younger generations and lets their company "grow from below." Counter Mentor Leadership will:- Show you how to discuss new workplace dynamics - Explain how to attract and retain the Millennial workforce- Explore the new challenges of leadership inherent with the explosion of technology - time compression, distractions, complexity, pace of change- Detail the CounterMentor leadership model and prescribe specific tactics and techniques for addressing both the old and new leadership issues

Vietnam Today

Mark A. Ashwill
Authors:
Mark A. Ashwill

Vietnam stands at a crossroads. Located in the geographical center of Southeast Asia, Vietnam is a complex mixture of the ancient and the modern. A Soviet-style legacy contrasts with an emerging Western-style market economy. Vietnam is faced with pressing political, social and economic challenges, and yet it is full of hope and potential. Here is a first look at Vietnam in the twenty-first century, a nation undergoing rapid change and opening up to the world. Dr. Mark Ashwill paints a broad picture of Vietnam, past and present, and explores today's defining issues. Readers come to understand how a two-thousand-year history of foreign invasion, occupation and war has deeply influenced the Vietnamese character. The Chinese, French and U.S. Americans have all left their imprint. Yet the struggle against oppression has infused the Vietnamese with a fierce spirit of nationalism and caution in their dealings with foreigners. Building relationships and trust as a prelude to doing business are critical to the Vietnamese, whether at home or abroad. Vietnam Today reveals the most prominent characteristics of the Vietnamese: their energy and drive, the dominance of group over individual and the paramount importance of maintaining harmony. In doing so, Ashwill and his Vietnamese contributor shed light on many sources of misunderstanding between Vietnamese and Western professionals. But for those who are prepared to take the time to get to know the people, to move at their pace, and to learn about their culture and history, Vietnam can be a land of promise and opportunity.

Experiential Activities for Intercultural Learning

H. Ned Seelye
Authors:
H. Ned Seelye

The need for new approaches, methods, and techniques in cross-cultural training and intercultural education are virtually insatiable, especially for experiential activities. The emphasis in this book is on activities that foster the development of intercultural awareness and cross-cultural sensitivity, helping learners understand some of the principal dimensions of intercultural communication, cross-cultural human relations, and cultural diversity. The selections include simulations, case studies, role plays, critical incidents, and individual and group exercises. A number address relatively complex workplace issues; others focus on intercultural dynamics in educational contexts. Some are printed here for the first time; others are culled from less accessible sources. They range from basic introductory activities to those that facilitate the exploration of intercultural issues in significant depth. In an introductory essay, Sheila Ramsey, an experienced scholar and trainer, examines the nature of intercultural training and lays out a conceptual framework for assessing its effectiveness. The rest of the book is made up of activities organized around six facets of intercultural contact: cultural differences for beginners, understanding oneself as a cultural person, the intercultural perspective, working across cultures, cross-cultural "foul-ups," and returning home. Each section opens with an introduction, followed by activities. Each activity includes, at a minimum, objectives, audience, materials required, setting, time required, and procedure for facilitation. Many of the activities include handouts or illustrations. This book will be especially valuable for trainers and educators who want to further ground their work in a solid theoretical base and at he same time augment their resources to expand heir repertoire.
