Intercultural communication is communication between people of different cultures . Intercultural communication refers to a process where people from different cultures share meanings. It can be symbolic, interpretive and transactional.
Intercultural communication is becoming a vital skill set as business, education and relationships become increasingly global.
It is important to learn how to deal with cultural differences when you interact with international students, whether they are studying abroad, traveling, or working in multinational offices.
This course will teach you how to recognize your cultural identity and those of others, as well as the cultural assumptions that we all hold, the nuances and potential for cross-cultural interaction and (mis)understanding. Learn about different communication styles and how they can differ from one country to the next. Also, learn how to adapt and assess diverse situations.

- Native speakers of English working with foreigners, either abroad or in their own country, who are having communication problems that affect their business.
- People who work with English native speakers and need help to understand why there are communication problems.
- HR professionals who need help to resolve intercultural communication issues.

Research published this year by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools suggests that health problems associated with job-related anxiety account for more deaths each year in the US than Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. It is likely that the same is true in the UK.
The combination of the Amazon story and the recent study into the impact of work-related stress means that there are important questions that all organisations should ask themselves.
These include: What type of management culture do we foster? What informal conflict management techniques do we offer to foster healthy workplace relationships? What are we doing to enable people at work to enjoy their jobs and thrive, both psychologically and physically?
Scott teaches non-violent communication techniques that help managers live healthier productive lives.
