“The purpose of knowledge is to accept others for their abilities, learn what you can from them, and share what you yourself have mastered’.
A researcher and lecturer, passionate about exploring the intertwining relationships between cultures and its influence on our thinking, Sara focuses her studies on indigenous management concepts – non-Western management approaches of emerging countries. Sara’s interest in transitional economies is not a coincidence.
Born and brought up in a rural Mongolia, and the first generation allowed to come to a ‘capitalist’ country to study, she dedicated her PhD to examine the local management practices in Mongolia and investigate how the influence of a nomadic heritage feeds into their behaviours and thinking.
She has much to share about nomadic traditions and concepts, which may enrich our perception of ‘traditional’ business and management thinking and provide a fresh perspective.
Currently, Sara teaches at London South Bank University as well as working as an independent consultant for cultural awareness in business negotiations and managing human resources for companies which operate in Mongolia, or are considering doing so in the future. She is a frequent speaker at both academic and non-academic international conferences and business events.
