Cultural Cues for Quality Conversations
How to frame your communication to be culturally inclusive
Everyone’s communication style varies across the globe. Our background, our cultures, and our experiences influence the way we communicate with each other. The more we learn about each other, the better we can be at creating a culture of inclusion and respect.
In this microlesson, we teach employees and managers how to make space for culturally nuanced communication styles. What may be normal in conversations in one culture - like interruptions or making eye contact - may be considered rude or disruptive in another. The more we learn about different communication styles and non-verbal cues, the more respectful and inclusive we can be. This microlesson is part of the Embracing Interculturalism skill-building series.
- Acknowledge that communication styles differ from culture to culture and why it’s important.

- How to become an impactful leader and collaborator when we learn about different cultural communication styles.
