Invisible Boundaries That Divide Our World

Subtle differences in communication part and the complex variations in what is considered good business or common sense from one country to another have a tremendous impact on how we understand one another, and ultimately on how we get the job down.

Many of these cultural differences- varying attitudes concerning when is best to speak or stay quiet, the role of a leader in the room, and what kind of negative feedback is the most constructive - may seem small. But if you are unaware of these differences they can derail your team meetings, demotivate your employees, frustrate foreign suppliers.

Low Context Vs High Context

In low-context countries, like US, Netherlands, Germany, good communication is precise, simple, and clear. Messages are expressed and understood, repetition is appreciated and helps clarify the communication.

In high-context countries, like China, Japan, Korea, good communication is sophisticated, nuanced, and layered. Messages are both spoken and read between the lines. Messages are often implied but not plainly expressed.
