About the Book: Upworldly Mobile: Behaviour and Business Skills for the New Indian Manager
What should you wear when your American colleague invites you to an informal dinner? What is the correct way to address a business
associate you are meeting for the first time? When should you shake hands, and when is the right time to bow or do namaste? How can you
manage as an Indian abroad when you are faced with unfamiliar food? What clicks with a German client, and how do you win over a Japanese partner? If you get an important business call in the middle of an equally important meeting, should you take it? Is it possible to be succinct in an email without being curt?
With real-life examples from world leaders that inspire emulation and featuring an easy 'pick-a-page' format, Upworldly Mobile is the ideal companion for Indian managers dealing with expatriate colleagues and global workplaces. It is equally useful for foreign managers looking to decode Indian work practices. Drawing on the author's business interactions with C-level executives of thousands of multinationals across seventy-six nationalities, this book aims to help develop a culturally sensitive outlook that will cement relationships with international counterparts most effectively.
Ranjini Manian derives from her expertise in crossculture communication to groom new Indian managers into 'Global Indians'. The author shares her own experiences and relates, in the form of anecdotes, the practices of world leaders that inspire emulation. There are also tips for expatriates to better comprehend Indians and their culture, so adaptability can be encouraged on both sides. While keeping them anchored in their Indian roots, the book looks to train young professionals to develop a culturally sensitive outlook so they can cement their relations with their international counterparts and firmly place India on the international business map.
