What are the reasons for failure of expatriate managers?
When managers take expatriates assignments abroad, they expect employees to understand the manager's culture. Sometimes, it's not as easy as it seems. Employees have their own way of working, dealing with management. In some countries, it's very important to get into the personal level with your employees, in some others it's not possible. On the other hand, managers might find it hard to adapt to the new culture. As a matter of fact, there are many websites that help expatriates cope with the new culture the expatriate starts her life in. I specifically found an interesting website that connects expatriates in the world: (http://www.linkexpats.com). I heard of people using its connecting services, and some other who even met others of the same culture. Another website I found, however was not to the level I was expecting, is expatriates.com
