NEW: LEADING MULTI-CULTURAL TEAMS:NEW: LEADING MULTI-CULTURAL TEAMS: LESSONS FROM THAI, WESTERN, AND JAPANESE MANAGERS
This new book is far more than just a “foreigner’s” guide to working with Thais. It is also a powerful guide for Thais who aspire to work with any international team. It explains three different views and styles of leadership – Thai, “Western”, and Japanese. Drawing on his vast experience with over 70 different nationalities in Thailand, Dr. Holmes describes hundreds of cases to guide leaders in this region. It is a lively and penetrating handbook for all team members (leaders and colleagues) on how to work and become a respected leader, in both Thai and International work teams. It’s even illustrated with Dr. Holmes’ quirky photographs. For Thai readers, this book offers, at last, a chance to see how to move from a purely “Thai” way of working, and move right to the top of an international work team. What advance readers have said:
