Okoli, Emeka J.
This paper contains information written from the perspective of a U.S. executive traveling overseas for the first time. The ideas presented are to help ease the fear of the experience. Sections include: (1) from outside looking in; (2) encounter stage and transition shock; and (3) taking care of business in a foreign environment. The seminar participant notes his interest is both personal and professional. He is an African from Nigeria where, like India, many ethnic groups exist and many languages and dialects are spoken. Also, he desires to explore the similarities and differences between Indian, American, and Nigerian cultures in the areas of diversity management. Recommendations for future travelers in foreign countries are made. Contains a list of 20 references. (EH)
