Intercultural competence is a must for future leaders.

Cross culture collaboration and management require approaches suitable for local culture to improve team performance. The noise in communication and collaboration is largely related to cultural differences, culture plays a very important role in high and low context. Incentives, decision-making, and power structures also differ due to cultural differences. Cross cultural awareness is the foundation for managing cross cultural team and demonstrating cross-cultural leadership. Business strategy in cross culture market need to be localized. Consumers in different countries and regions have different perceptions, motivations, decision-making and buying behaviors and preferences for marketing communication methods, so the value proposition, brand positioning, and market strategy and promotion strategy are different.

Chinese Culture Adaption is a crucial aspect of doing business in China, as it involves understanding and respecting the unique cultural norms and practices of the country. It requires individuals and organizations to be sensitive to hierarchical structures, collectivist values, and the concept of "face" in Chinese society. Adapting to Chinese culture also involves building strong guanxi (relationships) with key stakeholders, as personal connections and trust play a vital role in business interactions. Furthermore, language proficiency and knowledge of Chinese etiquette and customs are essential for effective communication and building meaningful relationships. Successful Chinese Culture Adaption enables individuals and organizations to navigate the complexities of the Chinese market, form long-lasting partnerships, and achieve sustainable business growth.
