Dr. Turnley has contributed two papers addressing the community's interest on who we are and why we are successful in our operations. The two papers are titled Forward-Deployed Warrior Diplomats: SOF and Cross-Cultural Competence and Creating the Conditions for a Possible Masterpiece: Small Groups and Special Operations Forces. These two papers are combined for this monograph to provoke the community's thinking of who we are and how we are organized. The Forward-Deployed paper asserts that SOF effectiveness of "by, with, and through" depends on our skills as warrior diplomats. This focus includes our cultural understanding and language skills or cross-cultural competency. Her paper on Creating the Conditions for a Possible Masterpiece links the competency to SOF small units as a reason for special operation successes. SOCOM is promoting the concept of the 3-D warrior. The Ds are diplomacy, defense, and development, which are consistent with by, with, and through. The execution of the 3-Ds vary by the SOF component due to organization, mission, and unit structure. She explains the size issue of the unit in her Creating the Conditions for a Possible Masterpiece. Dr. Turnley makes several important points on cultural competency and its impact on mission. In addition to language skills, SOF warriors need to understand the culture of the supported nation. This understanding will afford the SOF warrior a higher probability of success in Dr. Turnley's model of force persuasion. She further develops her position by exploring the relationship between language, culture, and regional knowledge. She makes a crucial point about Internal Defense and Development (IDAD) for SOF. The difference between IDAD and foreign internal defense (FID) is that IDAD requires more cross-cultural skills than FID does. Any unit can conduct FID, but IDAD needs specialists-SOF troops. Dr. Turnley emphasizes this point in Creating the Conditions for a Possible Masterpiece by pointing out the key points from William McRaven's book, Spec Ops on the essential principles of special operations. Two of those principles seen as critical in IDAD are purpose and simplicity. SOF regional orientation realizes purpose and simplicity. This contributes to a focus that can stimu- x late a feeling of collective purpose. Their combination allows SOF units to work the IDAD campaign. Dr. Turnley's two papers cause us to reflect on who we are, what we should do, and how we are organized. Our understanding of cultural, language, and SOF core activities permit the collective conscience to become that 3-D warrior. Kenneth H.

divdivCross-cultural competence is a skill that has become increasingly essential for the managers in multinational companies. For other business people, this kind of competence may spell the difference between surviving and perishing in the new global economy. This book focuses on the dilemmas of these managers and offers constructive advice on dealing with culture shock and turning it to business advantage. Opposing values can be understood as complementary and reconcilable, say Charles Hampden-Turner and Fons Trompenaars. A manager who concentrates on integrating rather than polarizing values will make much better business decisions. Furthermore, the authors show, wealth is actually created by reconciling values-in-conflict. Based on fourteen years of research involving nearly 50,000 managerial respondents and on the authors’ extensive experience in international business, the book compares American cultural values to those of more than forty other nations. It explores six culture-defining dimensions and their reverse images (universalism-particularism, individualism-communitarianism, specificity-diffusion, achieved status–ascribed status, inner direction–outer direction, and sequential time–synchronous time) and discusses them as alternative ways of coping with life’s—and business’s—exigencies. With humor, cartoons, and an array of business examples, the authors demonstrate how the reconciliation of cultural differences can cause whole organizations to grow healthier, wealthier, and wiser. /DIV/DIV

Employees at a variety of levels are expected to have as good skills in cross-cultural working as in any other key competency. The Cross-Cultural Communication Trainer's Manual provides a complete toolkit for the trainer/facilitator needing to design and deliver cross- or inter-cultural training, for both mono- and multicultural audiences. Volume One: Designing Cross-Cultural Training The first volume in this two-volume set opens with an outline of useful information on cross-cultural training content, design and delivery. This is followed by a series of readings that flesh out many of the concepts important for trainers and learners alike and provide important facts, theory and practical background on an area in question. They can be used as a basis for facilitator presentations or given to learners as reading exercises. The manual concludes with (1) a series of action planning activities to help consolidate what learners have experienced and (2) evaluation forms for assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of any cross-cultural training events. The Appendix offers outline designs for seven half-day, one-day and two-day workshops using activities from Volume Two: Activities for Cross-Cultural Training along with a detailed bibliography. Volume Two: Activities for Cross-Cultural Training With 80 activities (covering skills such as understanding culture and differences, stereotypes, cultural self-awareness, cultural influences, barriers to communication) this varied and imaginative collection is a must-have resource for anyone involved in cross- or inter-cultural training. The collection concludes with a detailed bibliography of further reading and references.
