P.S. The guy in the top photo reminded me of my dad. He was always a sharp-dressed man! :)

Interesting cultures showing that people have a need to identify with their peers to be one step ahead of the crowd, I guess
Kaitlin Young's curator insight, September 17, 2014 12:35 PM

When considering subcultures, it is sometimes easy to forget that they exist in other countries. While I was familiar with groups such as the "chavs" in England, and the Dandies in the Congo, I never realized that some subcultures that are prevalent in the USA exist in places such as Indonesia. It's amazing to see how some fads have globalized and are present in different places. I doubt that the Ramones, while making music in their garage would dream that they would spark a globally present subculture.

8 Cognitive Biases That Will Make or Break Your Culture

8 Cognitive Biases That Will Make or Break Your Culture | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

In HR we often rely on common sense. But there is a dark side to common sense that HR needs to stay aware of.

 

Sometimes our instincts will steer us the wrong way.

 

Behavioral psychologists call this “cognitive bias”. It will affect perceptions, it will affect objectivity, and it will affect relationships—in both positive and negative ways. That makes it very relevant to culture management and to you.
