In both instances (self-analysis and team assessments), an important part of this paper is for students to provide several specific recommendations for self and team improvement. Specifically, write a term paper detailing the following:

(Google geerthofstede.com. click on “Hofstede Center” and click the country comparison link) Create a simple table using the data you gather. Explain what you find with respect to these two dimensions and highlight its managerial implications for managing in an increasingly global world.
It is also very advisable that you start early in order to avoid rushing. Though no limit is placed on the number of pages, quality should not be sacrificed for quantity. An excellent and carefully crafted paper is expected from each student. At least six scholarly sources (books or articles) and other than the assigned readings should be referenced.
My team have 3 people. I am from China, this is my second semester of MBA. I don’t have any work experience. I have been in USA 4 years. I have some problems of language. Sometimes I don’t understand what they talk about in class meeting. But we are good in most of time. It’s better for me to communicate through typing and text. We did our team report, communicated only on Canvas by using the “team discussion”. We upload our separate tasks, and provide opinions or questions. We have the email and phone number of each other, but rarely using it.

Another guy is David Bell. He is American. He also treats me nicely. And he will ask me about my part of task. He is a little worried about if I would do my part in time, since he has a bad memory of a foreign partner before. He told me that guy did nothing of their team report, he had to finish all of the stuffs by himself. Maybe I gave him the first impression was not perfect, because of my bad English. But I tell him I won’t be the leg, and I did my part. I think he will know that I am not a lazy guy. He hasn’t give me his introduction yet. I will upload it once I got it.
