Training is limited to 50 attendees.
Learn the difference between passive, assertive, and aggressive communication.
Understand the different communication styles inter-culturally, and how they interact. We reflect on ways to modify communication styles to bridge across different approaches.
We will look at collectivism vs individualism, and high vs low context cultures and how they contribute to expectations around communication.
This session will also cover different modes and objectives of communication, various cognitive and working styles, and how to address those differences in the workplace.
