Professor of Organizational Behavior, INSEAD


The world is a global village; at times, a business can resemble a melting pot of cultures. This can add color to a corporate setting, but it can also add challenges. The world’s most successful global leaders need to navigate the complexities of cultural differences at work. It is here that the work of Erin Meyer proves so crucial. 

In addition to being a professor at INSEAD, Erin is the author of The Culture Map: Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business, and co-author of the New York Times bestseller No Rules Rules.

Erin has taught thousands of executives from five continents to decode how cultural differences are impacting their work, and strategies for improving their international collaboration. In 2019, Erin was selected by the “Thinkers50” as one of the world’s 50 leading business thinkers
