The Cultural Detective: Investigating Ways to Communicate Effectively Across Cultures
Tuesday, August 13, 2013 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM (CDT)
Have you ever struggled with finding the best way to communicate with people who have different backgrounds than you?
In today's business community, there is no single best approach to communicating with one another. The key to effective communication across cultures is to develop an understanding of, and a deep respect for, the differences.
Participants in this class identify ways to reduce misperceptions and improve communication with others in the work environment: superiors, peers, subordinates, and customers.
Participants will be able to assess their own values and styles and those of their organizations.
