"The most universal quality is diversity."

 Cultures provide people with ways of thinking--

ways of seeing, hearing, and interpreting the world.

Demographers tell us that our society is becoming 

increasingly racially and ethnically diverse.  

Think about it:

The active presence of God in all things created extends to all space and every place.

Effective communication with people


of different cultures is especially challenging.


When the languages are different,


and translation has to be used to communicate,


the potential for misunderstandings increases.


The same words can mean different things


to people from different cultures,


even when they talk the "same" language.

Take Time To Communicate Effectively 


With Different Cultures.

Communicating with people


from different cultures


means that we need to understand


their world, their values, beliefs,


and customs.


  This allows for better understanding


of different cultures and an understanding


of potential cross-cultural


misunderstandings.


Each culture has its own way of communicating,


eating, sharing, and showing affection. Most


cultures remain intact by passing along their


nuances, habits, and sayings for hundreds of


years, with only slight variations occurring


within each generation.


Communication is not only about the words we speak, 


we also need to pay attention to:


  • Body language

  • Tone

  • How things are said

  • What is not said


  • The cultural meaning of what is said and how it is said.

Cultural differences effect communication


on all levels.


Cross-cultural environments requires


more attention.


Building strong cross-cultural skills starts with


learning to listen to all aspects of the


communication.


When communicating with someone from a


different culture we need to put aside


our busy habits and take in as much


information as we can.


We can do this by simply being ourselves,


with quiet confidence,


discreet respect, and an attentive presence.

May we become more appreciative of the rich diversity 


of Our International/universal heritages.
