Cross-cultural communication (PT 512)

PhD Michigan State University
All tribes and ethnic groups either try to understand each other and live together in peace and harmony or they fail to understand each other which often leads to conflict or war. This course will help us understand better how to communicate across the generational cultures, across husband-wife cultures and across the cultures of nationalities. Cross-cultural specialist Duane Elmer gives practical advice for serving other cultures with sensitivity and humility. He shows how our actions and attitudes often contradict and offend the local culture. He offers principles and guidance for avoiding misunderstandings and building relationships in ways that honor others. Filled with real-life illustrations and practical exercises, this course will helps you communicate effectively, avoid cultural faux pas and establish trust. Duane Elmer shares stories about various types of conflict and shows how they can be handled effectively and appropriately. Businesspeople and missionaries, teachers and students, husbands and wives, anyone who wants to communicate more effectively with people from other cultures, will find this course immensely helpful.
