This month´s contribution for intercultures is inspired by a cowboy. And not the “Wild West” variety you see in American films, but a special cowhand from West Africa. As the proverb above suggests, it is important to check our assumptions: Is the herd really still following?
The article Start Working with Assumptions – This Way will help you discover:

- Why it´s critical to understand exactly which assumptions guide your work
- How you can avoid harmful misunderstandings and build your global skills.
When you´re finished, pop over to the comments section below to share a real-life example of what can go wrong at work when we fail to recognize our cultural assumptions.
I can´t wait to hear from you!
