Communication is the expression of our thoughts and feelings, and culture has a significant impact on how we communicate. This is why different cultural groups communicate differently. With the recent rise of globalisation and the rapid growth of multiculturalism in society, we are now required to communicate more often with people from different cultural backgrounds. When communicating, one of the biggest mistakes we make is to assume others think the same way we do. Intercultural Communication: Connecting with Cultural Diversity first reviews the basics of communication, and then applies that knowledge in an intercultural context, taking you on a journey that leads to improved interactions and relationships, greater success in the achievement of goals, and better outcomes in both your professional and personal life.
