Cross cultural communications. It’s a BIG topic.
It has a BIG impact on training & development.
Cross cultural communications affects:
- when do we start our trainings? what’s considered ‘on-time’ and ‘late’?
- how do we use power? Do we share it, keep it or pass it on?
- what training techniques do we choose? Which ones do we leave out?
- how do we arrange the training space? Where do we sit or stand? Where do the participants?
- what do we wear?
- how formal or informal are we?
Cross cultural communications – intriguing, uplifting, confusing, energizing, energy consuming and ever present.
