Did you ever experience a culture shock? Having lived and worked in over 20 different countries between the two of us, we do have our fair share of cultural experiences, including shocks. Here we explore everything from (crazy) food memories to how it is to lead a team with a completely different culture than you. And, are reverse cultural shocks the worst? You don’t need to move from country to experience a culture shock, you can go through the same phases just by changing company or even by changing family settings. Are there any benefits from being exposed to all those different cultures? Join us to explore if there is time for some more culture shock in your life!iTunes Download Pep Sheet
