Erin Meyer

Futurist | INSEAD Professor | Author | Thinkers50 Speaker


Erin Meyer is a professor at INSEAD, one of the leading international business schools. Her work focuses on how the world's most successful managers navigate the complexities of cultural differences in a global environment. 

Prior to INSEAD, Erin Meyer was a Director of Training and Development at HBOC and a Director of Business Operations at McKesson Corporation.

Living and working in Africa, Europe, and the United States prompted Meyer's study of the communication patterns and business systems of different parts of the world. Her framework allows international executives to pinpoint their leadership preferences and compare their methods to the management styles of other cultures. Meyer has taught thousands of executives from five continents to decode cross-cultural complexities impacting their success, and to work more effectively across these differences.

Meyer's work at INSEAD includes directing the Leading Across Borders and Cultures program. Meyer publishes frequently in Harvard Business Review. 

In her new book 'No Rules Rules', she teams up with Netflix cofounder Reed Hastings to break down the unorthodox work culture that made the streaming titan one of the world's most innovative companies. In her previous book, 'The Culture Map', she decoded the cultural differences that could make-or-break an organization's success.
