Effective communication is always a challenge, and when diverse cultures are introduced, good communication can become even more challenging. In todays global economy, understanding how context, style, beliefs, and value systems influence the way we communicate and decode others’ messages is more important than ever.
This course attempts to explain various dimensions of a culture and how they affect the communication between individuals from different cultures by identifying the requirements of successful cross-cultural communication. The course takes you through the communication styles for high or low-context situations and provides some key guidelines to improve your cross-cultural communication based on Hofstede’s cultural dimensions model.
