Navigating Cultural Differences
General Assembly 2013 Event 2032
Speaker: Margaret E. Anderson
Most communication is cross-cultural. Both inter- and intranational diversities (ancestry, regionality, gender) cause misunderstandings that derail movement from promise to action. Your enthusiasm looks “pushy” to me, my tact feels “manipulative” to you, etc. Learn an over-arching paradigm that demystifies communication diversity, fostering the enthusiasm that strengthens mutual commitment.
