Length: 18 minutes, 35 seconds

“What I do is I change sales people’s behaviors from being afraid of culture to look for people whose culture may be different from their own and to just ask them about their culture and get over the fear. Once they get past that fear, they actually kinda find culture to be interesting, fascinating and fun.”
~ Michael Soon Lee

In this episode, Carma and Michael chat about how to honor another person’s culture, whether in a one-on-one or one-to-many situation. We also touch on learning styles and how certain cultures tend to favor one over the other. Lee’s journey to becoming an expert in diversity is fun to hear and the information he shares is valuable.

Michael Soon Lee’s Big Tip: When you want to change someone’s behavior, you need to communicate what the benefit it to them. For example, with salespeople, he shows them how they’ll make more money.
