Item description for Culture from the Inside Out: Travel and Meet Yourself by Alan Cornes...

The first person you meet when you travel abroad is yourself! Why do some people slip into a new culture easily and others stumble for footing? In this age of frequent international travel, businesspeople and visitors alike depend on acquiring new skills. Yet, feeling at ease in a new culture requires more than just skill building and knowing the customs and etiquette. At the heart of it is a clear understanding of one's own personality. In this innovative approach to understanding culture and succeeding in business abroad, Alan Cornes shows how our psychological make-up plays a fundamental part in encountering a new city, a new culture, a new environment. Culture from the Inside Out takes readers on a deeply personal journey to discover the first people we meet when stepping on foreign shores: ourselves. Cornes shows us how to learn culture-our own and others-from the inside out. By exploring self-imposed barriers and our perception of ourselves, Cornes helps us examine our tolerance for ambiguity, empathy, flexibility and sensory acuity--all elements that affect our ability to get along in unfamiliar surroundings. He inspires us to overcome cultural anxiety and suggests positive approaches to the challenges of crossing cultures. Culture from the Inside Out provides any traveler, seasoned or beginner, with effective strategies for success.

An intercultural book about human beings  Jun 6, 2006
A wonderful find. An intercultural book that is actually about human beings. I was very glad to discover this book, which addresses the very reasons I entered the intercultural field: a desire to understand myself and others from a cultural perspective and a pursuit of some wisdom on how people from different cultural contexts can build connections. Thank you Alan Cornes
