Valuing Diversity ® Series: Communicating Across Cultures

"One of the most thought provoking and challenging films I have ever viewed on the subject."
-Emory Worldwide

Overview of Communicating Across Cultures

Prevent cultural misunderstandings through effective cross-cultural communication. Communicating Across Cultures increases awareness of the skills necessary for cross-cultural interaction. This is the best behavioral level introduction to the concept that we are all different, and therefore all have different styles of communicating. It doesn't put responsibility on any one group, thus it is better to show this video prior to Managing Differences and Diversity At Work.
