Break out of your cultural comfort zone. People are communicating more than ever, but still face linguistic and cultural barriers. In a globalized world, teamwork, collaboration, and business growth mean communicating across real and perceived borders. In this dynamic presentation, learn how cultural differences present challenges in everyday situations—including on social media--whether we perceive it or not. Explore cultural decorum across world regions, see American culture through a foreign “lens,” and understand cultural expectations, drawing on business case studies, research in applicable fields of psychology and sociology, culture related events in the news, and the latest academic theories on intercultural dynamics.
