Some will make you angry. Some will leave you frustrated. But all of them will make you more aware of - and more sensitive to - the differences that bind us all. Told by a school teacher who came to the U.S. from Cameroon in West Africa, here are the true tales of people, including himself, from cultures very different from the U.S., who find in their workplaces, in their co-workers, and within themselves an unexpected lack of understanding and acceptance. Culture shock usually occurs when people unconsciously apply their own rules to people from another culture, the author says. And that can lead to feelings of frustration, surprise, disorientation, confusion, isolation, hurt, and sometimes even retaliation. If you are a cultural or diversity trainer, or a professor or teacher with diverse students, or a manager with a diverse workforce, or a person wanting to understand what can happen when people from different cultures interact, youll find the examples and lessons in Shocking Cultures invaluable as you deal with cultural differences. Let this heart-warming book be a guide and teacher for you, your family, and your co?workers. In todays global society, nothing will build bridges of understanding faster than an awareness of the differences that join us in our humanity.
