Learning to Think Korean Summary

Learning to Think Korean: A Guide to Living and Working in Korea by L. Robert Kohls

Kohls shares a feast of Korean culture: a ricebowl of history and tradition complimented by an array of spicy tidbits that capture the reader's attention like a mouthful of kimchi. Based on personal experience, he provides critical incidents that explore the more puzzling aspects of Korean culture. Kohls explores Korean values-traditional values, value changes over the past forty years and projected values for the early decades of the twenty-first century. He is equally insightful when it comes to discussing the cultural patterns and practices of the workplace. He takes on management style, personal issues, networking and pull, negotiating style, persistence, key Korean business relations and more. To a greater extent than most other Asisan countries, Korea adheres to the traditional collectivist and Confucian traits of harmony, hierarchy, ingroups/outgroups, status, and proper behavior. According to Kohls, these traits plus the more Westernized values of the younger generations and the veneer of modern urban savvy surface in surprising combinations in personal and workplace relationships-often where they are least expected.

Learning to Think Korean Reviews

Robert Kohls' book is impressive in its depth of understanding of the ways in which cultural differences affect behavior, the ways in which we really are not all alike underneath. -- Horace H. Underwood, Executive Director, Korean-American Educational Commission, Seoul, Korea
