O modelo de Trompenaars é -- juntamente com o modelo de Hofstede que já referi várias vezes no podcast -- uma das referências quando se trata de comparar culturas entre diferentes países. Nenhum dos dois modelos é perfeito -- até porque implicam necessariamente generalizar as culturas de países com milhões de pessoas com crenças e valores muito distintos --, mas a verdade é que há inegavelmente padrões nas culturas nacionais, e ler livros como o de Trompenaars muda a maneira como entendemos as reacções de pessoas de outras culturas.

Ao longo da conversa, discutimos algumas das dimensões do modelo do convidado, como as culturas mais e menos emocionais, e mais e menos individualistas. Falámos também sobre como é possível ‘reconciliar’ os dilemas que surgem quando diferentes culturas entram em conflito -- por exemplo dentro de empresas multinacionais. O autor tem adaptado este estudo sobretudo em aconselhar empresas que actuam entre vários países sobre como gerir as diferenças de culturas nos vários países em que operam. Como se adivinha, as organizações com maior sucesso são aquelas que mais bem conseguem articular estes desafios.
