What I Said and What I Ment: Improving Cross Cultural Communications
Free Workshop with Rosetta Legg
October 8, 2013
Shoreline City Hall
Humans communicate on many levels: spoken language, tone, body language, style and personality. The fact that we have complex cultural identities and a host of differing past experiences increases the probability of cross-cultural miscommunications. This workshop presents major cross-cultural communication theories, ways that cultural values, power, privilege and differences affect the
way we communicate, tools for questioning assumptions, and ways to improve cross-cultural communications skills.
Space is limited: Register at: firstname.lastname@example.org
