Lesson Plan


Created by Prof. Chien-tsung Lu, School of Aviation and Transportation Technology, Purdue University, based on the following:


Hofstede, G., Hofstede, G.J., & Minkov, M. (2010). Cultures and organizations: Software of the mind (3rd ed.). McGraw-Hill Education.


Merkin, R. (2018). Saving face in business: Managing multicultural interactions. Palgrave Macmillan.

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Evaluate their cultural self-awareness, knowledge of worldview frameworks, empathy, openness, communication, and curiosity. 2. Express and discuss their views that impact teamwork within the context of Hofstede’s cultural dimensions. 3. Recognize and articulate cultural differences and similarities in views and approaches in teaming contexts.
