Dear Readers,

I had the great fortune to run a program in Hong Kong this week for a client. While there are cultural, language and work-style differences no matter where you go, I was reminded this week how people are essentially the same in many ways. It isn’t that we don’t respect and understand the differences in background, history, cultural and acceptable and non-acceptable behaviors. It’s that in every organization, large and small, there are fundamental things team members need no matter where they live.
