Shape your #crossculturalcommunicationskills with academicskillsonline.com and grow your #personalbrand. According to Erin Meyer, writer of The Culture Map: Decoding How People Think, Lead and Get Things Done Across Cultures, you must tread carefully when dealing with #culturaldifferences because even when you focus on #individualdifferences it is still through your cultural lens. She presents a scale with eight items to show how culture influences #international collaboration. It is good to know that according to her research the #United States and the #Netherlands historically have shared a low context for #communication, meaning communication that is precise, simple and clear, and messages that are expressed and understood at face value. It is no surprise then that the United States and the Netherlands have shared #historical and #cultural ties.
