Hansen, Carol D.
International Journal of Training and Development, v7 n1 p16-30 Mar 2003
Analysis of reactions of 14 German and 20 Ivory Coast managers to informant stories from 14 U.S. human resource professionals revealed differences in work myths that reflected national differences, e.g., individual versus collective orientation, business development patterns, and management approaches. Awareness of the ethnocentrism of work myths was recommended. (Contains 51 references.) (SK)
