Developing Intercultural Communication Competence

Adair Linn Nagata's picture

In today's global world and multicultural workplaces, many of us communicate regularly with people who are culturally different from us.

Making ourselves understood and understanding people whose culture is not familiar to us often requires extra effort.

Communicating across cultural differences can be an exciting challenge that promotes learning about ourselves as much or more than about the culturally different other person or group.

The goal of this Knowledge Pill is to provide a model for developing intercultural communication competence (ICC). Interpersonal communication skills are fundamental to good relationships between any types of people.

Before starting this Knowledge Pill, you might try the one on developing effective interpersonal communication.
