Building Cross Cultural Bridges for Success
We all need to expand our networks, no matter what industry we are in. Sales, education, government, nonprofit management - our success depends on making connections with fellow professionals, customers, students, or clients. Understanding cross cultural communication dimensions is a durable skill for connecting with people across generations, industries, genders, physical distance, and more. Culture is not just about where you come from, but includes multiple dimensions that influence the values, assumptions, and beliefs that underlie our behaviors and our decision making. Develop an understanding of key dimensions of culture, how to identify your preferred style, and ways to become aware of how others may prefer to work and communicate so that you can build bridges that will enhance your professional success.
