This is the winner of the Management and Leadership Textbook category at the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards 2013/14. International Management explores management opportunities in encounters across the world between national, organisational, political, professional and social cultures. It is soundly based theoretically and supported with real-life international examples from contemporary events and situations. From a historical perspective and a uniquely cross-disciplinary approach, Elizabeth Christopher identifies the major leadership styles that continue to characterise people across regions, nations, communities and organisations, within groups and as individuals. She provides a practical and comprehensive textbook for successful negotiation in a world rich not only in cultural diversity but also in convergence. It is an indispensable guide for students and practitioners to key issues of cross-cultural management.
