Globalization is bringing people together from around the world, creating a global economy and work environment that require increased and effective communication between cultures.

Communication is at the heart of cross-cultural understanding. People from other countries and cultures show subtle differences in their ways of thinking and communicating. Understanding these differences and how they impact day-to-day work life is essential for reaching organizational goals as well as for achieving and maintaining successful personal working relationships.
