SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication
30-90 Minutes (Customization is available)
This lively and interactive topic is based on Gayle Cotton’s Bestselling Book, ‘SAY Anything to Anyone, Anywhere! 5 Keys to Successful Cross-Cultural Communication’. Differences are the spice of life! But cultural differences can also be the source of embarrassing blunders and miscommunication in the workplace, and for business or social travelers alike. We must manage preexisting cultural expectations, understand cultural sensitivities, avoid conflict, and sidestep offending someone due to cultural differences -- albeit unintentional. The strength of any multicultural relationship depends entirely on the ability to effectively communicate, and to build trust and rapport in person, on the phone, or by email. To do this, we need to understand how words, tonality, and body language vary with every culture. This presentation will increase your self-awareness, help you adapt your style, and enable you to be proactive in multi-cultural relationships. Its Gayle’s most requested topic, and has lots of humor and take-home value!
