Travelling – It leaves you speechless … but turns you into a storyteller

I have come to realize that if you want or need to communicate with people from all over the world, speaking the same language, albeit crucial, is not enough. Cultural factors need to be considered. Intercultural competence has become a must and not a nice to have, in doing business globally. Consequently I have started to incorporate intercultural skills in my business English training. Good communications greatly depends on understanding and respecting cultural differences. Communicative styles, concepts of time and body verbal and body language all have critical implications on doing business appropriately and on conveying the right message. Learning intercultural skills has several relevant benefits: It improves relationships with people from different cultures, it decreases misunderstandings and potential friction between individuals with distinct core values, it gives you a better appreciation of your own culture, and most importantly, it enables you to better interact with foreign professionals, making it easier to achieve your goals.
