Overview:Personally and professionally, we are all bound to interact with people

Overview:Personally and professionally, we are all bound to interact with people who have cultural and experiential backgrounds that are different from our own. These differences result in different perspectives, different styles of decision making, and different communication styles and expectations. Personally, developing intercultural competence is good choice, especially if you like to travel to different regions or countries. But cultural competence becomes integral at a professional level, where you will be expected to work with clients, colleagues, organizations, manufacturers, businesses, and industry leaders with world views and expectations that are different from yours.The first step in understanding human and cultural diversity is to identify and learn about your own culture and to consider how your cultural orientation affects your perspectives, expectations, and communication style.
