Bridging Differences in Cross-cultural Communication
In today's world, business is global. No matter the industry or sector, the chances that you are working with people from another country or culture are high. Given that business is communication, the ability to communicate successfully across cultures is a mission critical skill. Communicating successfully with people from our own culture, in our own language is challenging enough. When we interact with people from other cultures, the barriers to effective communication are even more pronounced. In this course, you will learn about two principal dimensions of culture that underlie culturally different ways of communicating and learn vocabulary that will allow you to explain differences in communication styles. You will also explore barriers to communicating effectively across cultures and identify ways to overcome them.

Building Shared Understanding across Cultural Divides
Building good working relationships with any colleague takes time and effort, but when colleagues are from different cultures, creating productive relationships may be more challenging. Cultural differences can impact communication and even steer it away from the intended purpose. When you compound cultural differences with the need to communicate virtually, achieving effective communication becomes even more formidable. In this course, you will learn communication strategies that will help you to effectively build and maintain relationships with culturally diverse colleagues around the globe. From building initial rapport to sharing information, brainstorming, and preventing conflicts, you'll be able to recognize behaviors that will enable you to communicate effectively and achieve your business goals.

Maintaining a Cohesive Multigenerational Workforce
To manage a multigenerational team, you need to understand the diversity of your employees and apply various strategies to divert conflict between them. If you tap into the potential of this multigeneration diversity, you'll create a more productive, collaborative, and innovative work environment. In this course, you'll learn about differences in approaches to work and communication between the main demographic generations: Baby Boomer, Gen X, and Millennial, also known as Gen Y. You'll also learn strategies to manage your team in a way that ensures team members of each generation feel included, respected, and supported. Additionally, you'll learn how to implement a mentoring program that takes advantage of the varying experiences and perspectives of multigenerational employees.

Managing Multigenerational Employees
Many influences have shaped the lives and work experiences of various generations, namely the Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial (or Gen Y), and Gen Z generations. Because each generation has its own distinct attitudes, priorities, needs, and work habits, managers can get the best from a multigenerational workforce by using strategies that recognize the differences. In this course, you'll learn about the best practices and successful techniques for managing these multigenerational employees in the workplace. You'll also explore methods for overcoming multigeneration challenges such as ageism and stereotypes to ensure that all employees feel respected and can make a positive contribution to your organization.

How Culture Impacts Communication
With so much business now happening on a global scale, cross-cultural communication is more important than ever before. Communication is always a challenge, and when diverse cultures interact, good communication can be even more challenging. To become a more efficient and effective communicator, you must acknowledge and respect cultural differences. In this course, you'll learn about the importance of taking culture and diversity into account in the workplace. You'll explore aspects of cultures that affect how people communicate across cultural boundaries. You'll also learn different considerations for speaking and writing across cultures.

Using Communication Strategies to Bridge Cultural Divides
It takes time to build working relationships with people from other cultures, but it only takes a second to alienate them by inappropriately crossing cultural boundaries. That's why building relationships across cultures is so important in the current global business context, where you have to share objectives and working space with people with diverse cultural backgrounds. In this course, you will learn about dealing effectively with cultural diversity to improve cross-cultural communication and build rapport. You'll also learn about the misunderstandings and behaviors related to a culture that can hinder good communication and ways to overcome them. Finally, you'll learn strategies for giving effective presentations to people from low- and high-context cultures.
