Using a foreign language changes moral decisions

Using a foreign language changes moral decisions | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Would you sacrifice one person to save five? Such moral choices could depend on whether you are using a foreign language or your native tongue. A new study from psychologists finds that people using a foreign language take a relatively utilitarian approach to moral dilemmas, making decisions based on assessments of what’s best for the common good.
Anne Egros's insight:

Very interesting article that brings some questions on language and moral judgement.

 

For example, when you use a foreign language you reduce your emotional response impacting the way you make decisions.

 

With less emotional involvement people have a tendency to use utilitarian approach.

 

 Decisions appear to be made differently when processed in a foreign language

How Referral Key's Spammy Practice Embarrassed Pollyanna

How Referral Key's Spammy Practice Embarrassed Pollyanna | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

  It’s what networking is supposed to be all about. A colleague sends you an email asking if you are still looking for clients and invites you to join his or her business network. 

Anne Egros's insight:

This blog describes exactly what happened to me two days ago with my Linkedin network.

 

I feel embarrassed , annoyed and then ashamed

 

Did that happen to you too with programs spamming your personal email lists ? What did you do ?

 

On the positive side (the Pollyanna attitude), now I will be more cautious and just Google any new tool I am willing to try to learn about other users 'stories.

Clare McNamara's curator insight, March 18, 2014 7:32 AM

It's true, translating a message across cultures can be tricky to begin with, but  takes practice but limiting your interpretations to content and ignoring tone, body language and form, always pays off.

Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Business management magazine, blogs, case studies, articles, books, and webinars from Harvard Business Review, addressing today's topics and challenges in business management.
Anne Egros's insight:

Learnings from the article:


What makes receiving feedback so hard? The process strikes at the tension between two core human needs—the need to learn and grow, and the need to be accepted just the way you are. As a result, even a seemingly benign suggestion can leave you feeling angry, anxious, badly treated, or profoundly threatened. A hedge such as “Don’t take this personally” does nothing to soften the blow.


The skills needed to receive feedback well are distinct and learnable. They include being able to identify and manage the emotions triggered by the feedback and extract value from criticism even when it’s poorly delivered.


Six Steps to Becoming a Better Receiver


1. Know your tendencies


2. Disentangle the “what” from the “who”


3. Sort toward coaching

 

4. Unpack the feedback

 

5. Ask for just one thing

 

6. Engage in small experiments

 

After you’ve worked to solicit and understand feedback, it may still be hard to discern which bits of advice will help you and which ones won’t. We suggest designing small experiments to find out. Even though you may doubt that a suggestion will be useful, if the downside risk is small and the upside potential is large, it’s worth a try.

Should You Eat While You Negotiate?

Should You Eat While You Negotiate? | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
New research shows a link between lunch and profitable negotiations.
Anne Egros's insight:

 In the experiment, Individuals who negotiated in restaurants created 12% greater profits and those who negotiated  without food.


This suggests that eating while deciding important matters offers profitable, measurable benefits through mutually productive discussions.


It seems that the increase of glucose level while eating plays a  greater role  by fostering self-control than sharing the simple activity of eating.


In countries like France or Japan, inviting business partners for lunch or dinner  is a must  in those cultures, the emphasis is put on creating relationships first) while in the USA, food is more often brought in a conference room (culture where the notion of time  is linked  to money)

Anne Egros's insight:

In the future, aging and slower rates of growth are expected to characterize the populations of all major regions in the world. Ranked by median age, Europe is currently the oldest region in the world and should retain that distinction in 2050. However, Latin America and Asia are projected to age the most rapidly through 2050. It is expected that the median age in Latin America, currently 10 years lower than the median age in North America, will match North America’s age level by 2050. Africa will continue to have the youngest population in the world.

How to make stress your friend

How to make stress your friend | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.
Anne Egros's insight:

A positive belief about stress makes your body react  by producing oxytocin, a hormone that encourages your social behavior, either by helping others or seeking help from others.

When you don't understand someone's behavior in intercultural context, ask questions, don't guess through your own perception.

 

Be aware of your own cultural bias is a good start then listen to other people and notice similarities or differences on how messages are perceived and understood by making sure there is no misinterpretation either in words, voice tone or body language.

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.
