Managing Diversity/Communicating Across Cultures

Global interaction has increased dramatically in recent years. This global village sees a flow of technology, information, jobs, people, capital and competition that no longer respects geographic boundaries. We will continue to come together socially and professionally from a range of differences and similarities that have helped to shape who we are as well as how we communicate and interact. It is through a greater understanding of these differences and similarities that we develop greater skills in building and sustaining more effective and productive organizations and communities. To interact in this integrated arena, we must develop new skills in communicating across cultures.
