Item description for Latino Culture: A Dynamic Force In The Changing American Workplace by Nilda Chong...

In 2003, Latinos became the largest minority group in the United States and according to the Census Bureau they will represent close to 25 percent of the population by 2050. Latinos currently have the highest rate of employment of any U. S. minority and in five years their role in the American labor force will be even more prominent than it is now. Latino Culture is the first book to fully explore the nuances of Latino culture in the workplace.

Written by Nilda Chong -- recently named as one of 80 "Elite Latinas" by Hispanic Business magazine -- and Francia Baez, Latino Culture is for mainstream managers, supervisors, and employees who work with Latinos. First-generation Latinas and successful professionals, Chong and Baez bring a profound understanding of the experience of working with Latinos as well as working as Latinos in the United States.

Chong and Baez provide valuable insights into key aspects of Latino Culture, such as: -Latino values: personalismo, simpatia, respeto and more -Communication styles, personal distance, self-disclosure, disagreements -Gender issues in the workplace: machismo, marianismo and paternalism -Relationship to supervisors, to coworkers and to employees -The issue of speaking Spanish at work -Striking differences in behavior and experience between generations

Colorful vignettes, real life stories and Cultural Pointers reveal the diversity of Latino culture, illuminating differences in values, education, country of origin and many other factors. Latino Culture celebrates an extremely diverse and important population.

Reviews - What do customers think about Latino Culture: A Dynamic Force In The Changing American Workplace?

Worth reading, as a starting point  Jul 1, 2008
This book takes on the monumental task of trying to explain all of the nuances of Latin American culture for non-Latinos. The problem, of course, is that Latinos are not created in a cookie cutter mold, and there are differences in attitudes and culture based on national origin, socio-economics, etc.. The book only scratches the surface of this dynamic group, but it is certainly worth reading as a starting point.
Would not recomend   Aug 19, 2007
The research appears to be thorough. But the overall presentation is lacking. To be fair, the concept of Latino Culture and how it affects professional relationships could take volumes of material and years of experience to fully understand. Unfortunately this book does a poor job of delivering the key points that I should be able to take away from the time spent reading it.
