Navigating Cultural Differences We Never Knew We Had

General Assembly 2013 Event 2032

Program Description

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.
