Description of the book "Cross-Cultural Communication: Theory and Practice":
Offers a deeper understanding of the need for effective cross-cultural communication and cultural awareness by those engaged in working in the international environment. This area is of increasing importance in the diverse and multicultural world where such effectiveness plays a major part in achieving competitive advantage. The emergence of India and China as future economic giants and the increasing influence of globalization have led to greater emphasis on the cultural dimensions of international business, diplomacy and international relations. This volume identifies the barriers to effective cross-cultural communication and suggests practical strategies to overcome them. Key aspects of PDF this include the identification of the skills and competencies required for success, the personnel selection methods and the options for pre-departure cultural training. The authors provide practical examples from their own experience in over 60 countries and from discussion with professional colleagues and international students.
