SW #8: Cross-Cultural Communication

Have you ever thought a person doesn't understand what you say? Did you ever get feedback that you disagreed with what they are talking about? Working with a team is a big challenge. Cultural differences affect relationships and team performance. Even people coming from similar cultures struggle a lot. This week, we talked about how we can approach people coming from different cultures and have a healthy relationship.

We answered questions such as:

  • How do miscommunications happen?
  • How to give negative feedback?
  • Why are some people always late for the meeting?
  • How can we disagree with someone without breaking their heart?

and many more!
