“Both sides need to be willing to change. How can we get them on that journey?”
A change journey, indeed! But not change our own cultures. That is impossible. And not necessary. USA and Germany, two great cultures. Instead, we want to understand the differences in how we think. For there is no action without first thought. Understand thought, understand action. “Journey”, what a great word. It will take time, patience, curiosity, learning, adjusting.
