The Loudest Duck. Moving Beyond Diversity while Embracing Differences to Achieve Success at Work
Written in an accessible style, The Loudest Duck is a business fable that offers an alternate view of a multicultural workplace through the use of practical stories and cultural anecdotes. For instance, the Chinese teach their children, «The loudest duck gets shot,» a viewpoint that gets carried into adulthood, while many Americans are taught, «The squeaky wheel gets the grease.» As a result, you find two distinct ways of doing business, neither one being necessarily the right or better way. By understanding others' viewpoint, you can understand how better to work with them.
