Communicating Cross-Culturally: Improving Communications in Culturally Diverse Workplaces Ed. 1

Online Course: ID# 1003080
About This Course:
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2039, the working-age population of the U.S. is projected to be comprised of more minorities than any single-race group. Moreover, globalization has continued, with the number of multinational companies having doubled in the past 20 years. What this means is that businesses and employees in the United States will increasingly come in contact with businesses and employees from many different cultures, and the changing population demographics in the United States will inevitably create a more ethnically diverse American work force.

Because communication styles, managerial approaches, and attitudes toward time and interpersonal relationships stem in part from individuals' cultural backgrounds, communication problems in the workplace are inevitable. Thus, for a modern workplace to function efficiently, employees must achieve a degree of cultural literacy, particularly with regard to how they communicate with one another.

This course defines culture and explains the manner in which culture can affect workplace attitudes and behavior. You will learn how to analyze your own personal culture and how your culture affects your expectations of yourself and others in the workplace, particularly within the context of communication.

Most importantly, you will acquire the techniques for correctly reading and responding to workplace behaviors rooted in cultural differences.
