Global Cross Cultural Communications
April 25 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0$200
This half-day course will help develop essential cross-cultural communication skills, both listening and speaking, while increasing understanding of how culture affects everyday business. Participants will critically examine how today’s business, political and social environments increase the need for cultural and communication competency in order to be successful with international colleagues, both at home and overseas. A goal is to increase your ability to understand and effectively interact with international partners and clients by helping you learn about the impact of culture on international business and build skills for communicating across cultural differences. Through understanding your and others cultural values and beliefs that can alter perceptions across cultures, and by identifying stereotypes that can hinder cross cultural communication, you can develop tools for communicating more profitably. The course will also consider communicating with LEP (Limited English Proficiency) business partners, and identify ways that culture impacts negotiation.
Whether your interaction is with international customers and clients in other countries or in the U.S., this course will help you understand what is underneath the words and build cross-cultural skills to be successful, even in times that may be particularly challenging to work across cultures and opposing world views.
This course is suitable for anyone involved with international business, both in the U.S. and overseas.
