6  First and foremost: › RESPECT › SINCERITY  Know basic cultural tenets when possible  Speak clearly and slowly as needed  Do NOT shout. Volume is not an issue  Avoid slang, idioms and heavy accent  Writing may be better than speaking

8 IDIOMS Clearly expressed  Did you figure it out?  Do you get it?  Make up (work)  Can you make it to your appointment?  Did you solve it?  Do you understand?  Re-do or repeat (work)  Will you be able to arrive on time?

9 “Hot Climate” Cultures “Cold Climate” Cultures  Japanese  Chinese  Arabic  Mexican  Greek  Latin American  U.S. (American)  Canadian  Western/Northern European

10  Knowledge is situational, relational  Less verbally explicit, written or formally expressed  More internalized understandings of what is communicated (ex: "in-jokes")  Stable, long term, well-established relationships are common  Decisions and activities focus around personal face-to-face communication  Strong awareness of who is accepted/belongs vs. "outsiders"  Authority is very important  EXAMPLE: Family reunions

11  Verbal message is often indirect  Communication is an art of engagement  Voice tone, eye contact, gestures are important  Relationships are built over time, are long-lasting and center on trust  Disagreement is personal  Group problem-solving is preferred  Learning occurs by watching model first, then practice  Accuracy is valued  Identity rooted in group (work, family, religion)

12  Rules oriented : there’s a procedure for everything  Most knowledge is codified, public, external, and accessible.  Sequencing, separation--of time, of space, of activities, of relationships  More interpersonal connections of shorter duration  Task-centered. Decisions and activities focus around what needs to be done, division of responsibilities.  Example: Airports

13  Words are most important tool  Knowledge is transferable  Verbal message is direct  Learning is by following directions, focus on detail. Speed is valued  Individual work is preferred  Disagreement is rational, not personal  Identity rooted in self and accomplishments

14  Influenced by: › Personality › Culture › Family › Values › Perception › Situation  Do All Americans communicate the same way? › Consider regional differences › Family/value differences Avoid Stereotyping!

15 Our similarities far outweigh our differences!
