Understanding Russia Today

Understanding Russia Today | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Article from Sean Dubberke is director, intercultural programs for RW3 CultureWizard, New York, NY

Anne Egros's insight:

There are very few good and accurate  articles about dealing and doing business with Russians in the 21st century and this article is one of them.. However, it was written in 2011 before the reelection of president Vladimir Putin which has a great impact on the way Russia is perceived outside Russia via its leader.

 

With the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games I have seen so much misunderstandings about Russia and was surprised that the fear and hate of the Russians are still very present in the western mentalities for people over 40 who was born before or during the Soviet Union.


Although I would not say that working with Russians is easy, I really enjoy the dynamism and enthusiasm of most people I meet in Moscow, especially women entrepreneurs, that can largely compensate the challenges of dealing with intercultural differences.

Yahoo's Latest HR Disaster: Ranking Workers on a Curve

Yahoo's Latest HR Disaster: Ranking Workers on a Curve | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Yahoo inflames employee sentiment by making managers rate workers on a forced ranking system that follows a bell curve, and then fire some of them
Anne Egros's insight:

You don't need to be a genius to understand that putting pressure on employees by forcing them to compete with each other instead of fostering collaboration will just unmotivate everyone.

 

I just have to watch my 12 year old son, when the teachers try to find the good in everyone, kids are happy and want to learn. When the teachers use stupid tests to evaluate and rank pupils, my son doesn't want to study even if the subject is his favorite one.
