Culture shock is a series of emotional states, up , down or neutral that can be very different from one person to another. While giving a basic idea of what to expect when we face a big change like moving to a new country,  it is important to acknowledge personal feelings without judgment. #expat   #cultureShock  
At one point or another new expats will get a "lecture" about "Culture Shock" as it is explained in this video: Not every expats experience that sequence of emotional reactions and saying this is "...

Nice article. Just up in the middle of the night in Germany because of my shock. Just finished an article of my own. Glad to see that I'm not alone in feeling this way (and wanting to overcome it). :)

Interesting study on how people behave depending on how they perceive to which community they belong. Global leaders need to create a common vision and shared values across cultures
Whether during trips to foreign countries, transitions to a new environment, or when consciously or unconsciously stereotyping, we tend to focus on the most obvious differences to ourselves or our

We are approaching the end of the school year and this is the season for many people to move to a new country or city, be back home or start living abroad for the first time.

No matter what type of change you will go through, you will most probably experience difficulties and stress that will make you attribute wrong meanings about the new world around you.

I wrote this article a while ago but thought might be useful for anybody moving to a new place or a new culture

I can totally identify with Deepak's article.  Recently I read an article entitled "Are We Addicted to Narcissism" which echoed much of what he covered.  It is a struggle to provide leadership that has an effective balance between the need for compassion and control. Unfortunately, in many of today's business realms, the message is that respect, compassion and caring are considered weakness rather than strengths.  We need to continue the message that they are necessary for healthy organizations. Thanks for sharing Deepak's message Anne.

Language is only part of a culture and speaking more than one language doesn't make you multicultural.

It is not clear  if language shapes personality or the way you think and behave, however according to my personal experience as an expat  and raising a bicultural child, it does, depending on context.
