This new series is a chance to test your cultural expertise. Each week we’ll post a question, you post your answers in the comments. The ‘model’ answer will be published in next week’s post.

Questions and answers are donated by GSI, an intercultural and global management training network.

We know that many of you are reading from different parts of the world and so it’s likely that you have many different answers for each question. We’d love to hear your opinions in the comments. Even if you don’t usually comment, we invite you to join in the conversation!

Here’s the first question:

Australia is a place where you definitely should celebrate your personal accomplishments and remind others about them.

True or False?

What do you think? And if you’re not Australian, does your culture celebrate personal accomplishments?

Don’t forget to check Saturday’s post for the answer.
