This is a wonderful map that truly shows language families and their roots. In Europe, I was rather surprised when I seen that the Romance branch was much larger than that of the Germanic. All of the ancient Germanic groups such as the Jutes, Angols, and the Saxons were well versed in combat. Considering they conquered much of Western Europe, how is it that the Romance group is bigger than the Germanic? Also, in Eastern Europe, the Albanian language has no reason to exist. In a region dominated by the Slavic group with no environmental barriers, the Albanian language should not exist.~Ethan.

Great scoop and fantastic insight Anne!  I have seen some senior leaders put in great efforts to update their leadership.  It is great to see!

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:27 AM

(From the article): Leadership is all about taking risks and knowing when to take them.   If you don’t feel comfortable being uncomfortable  – courageous enough to see and seize opportunities that others don’t and do what others won’t – it is impossible to be  an effective leader.   These are the fundamentals of sustainable leadership.   So look around you and ask yourself the following question:  Has your leadership style become outdated?

Menno Molendijk's curator insight, October 30, 2013 4:30 AM

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.

 

Good demonstration at the end of this article using Anglo-Dutch Translation Guide.

Language is only an element of culture. To become culturally sensitive and able to communicate with people from another culture other clues must be assimilated such as understanding business etiquette, traditions and superstitions, religion, humor etc.

 

To assimilate a culture,  usually best way is to live in it: you can either live in a specific nation or being raised in the culture not necessary in a specific country
