In today's global business environment it is necessary to communicate successfully across cultural boundaries of languages, styles, and values. Professional Communication in International Settings provides a practical way to help individuals deal with a variety of cultural practices by systematically developing their own capacity to learn culturally appropriate behaviors and actions.
The book uses four communicative activities; telephone calls, resumes, presentations, and meetings; to show how the rapid development of new media technologies and new contacts changes each area of professional communication. The volume presents a method for cooperative and comparative exchanges that allow organizational groups to get the information they need directly from their counterparts without lengthy training programs.
