International Business Communication
Your global expansion project is expanding and now you are to develop a global franchise team and establish a presence in the countries. You invite all of the players to the headquarters in the United States for a big meeting to explain the project and get to know one another.
You are concerned with effective communication and need to address the following issues:
- What are the implications of the cultural variables for your communication with the team representative from each country in the face-to-face meeting?
- What are examples of barriers and biases in cross-cultural business communications that may impact the effectiveness of communication?
- What are some of the issues you should be concerned about regarding verbal and nonverbal communication for this group to avoid misinterpretations and barriers to communication?
