The Loudest Duck : Moving Beyond Diversity While Embracing Differences to Achieve Success at Work Hardback
Written in an accessible style, The Loudest Duck is a business fable that offers an alternate view of a multicultural workplace through the use of practical stories and cultural anecdotes.
For instance, the Chinese teach their children, "The loudest duck gets shot," a viewpoint that gets carried into adulthood, while many Americans are taught, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." As a result, you find two distinct ways of doing business, neither one being necessarily the right or better way.
By understanding others' viewpoint, you can understand how better to work with them.
