Culture is the way in which a group of people solves problems and reconciles dilemmas. Fons will show, using the Trompenaars Hampden-Turner 7 Dimensions of Culture, that every culture distinguishes itself from others by the specific solutions it chooses to certain problems, which reveal themselves as dilemmas.

When the ‘hard side’ of business and strategy clashes with culture, culture always wins. Culture is an enabler for successful relations, but also a minefield for potential conflicts.

In order to leverage the strength of diversity, one should move beyond nationality, gender and ethnicity by incorporating the multiple layers of values that form perceptions and guide behaviours. Diversity can only lead to higher performance if it goes beyond social justice and equal treatment; it is an essential ingredient and pre-condition for growth and innovation.
