Also In this essay Manning used tone to establish the effectiveness of the story. In the story Manning is very descriptive about all the details, so let’s start off with one that’s not as strong as the others but still plays a big role in the process of making the story effective.

Due to the really different backgrounds and cultures among us, some people may think that they should protect their own cultures so that they do not listen to others’ opinions. This is normal phenomenon because nobody wants their culture being offended. If we cannot properly deal with cultural diversity, it may influence the relationship and trust building among people. Additionally, if we visit to other countries, it is better to respect and follow their cultural norms and rules so that we will not give a bad image or impression to the local people. Otherwise, it may cause conflicts between people which is not good for promoting cultural diversity.
On the other side of the spectrum, some people employ avoidance tactics. This is a passive tendency where you avoid tough issues so you donâ€™t have to face them and/or deal with them.

Whereby had a person taken an assertive approach rather than externalising or avoiding the issue at hand, taking time to see someone elseâ€™s point of view, appreciating that everyone has different opinions of value and expressing our feelings appropriately, all the negative feeling and aggressive explosions would not have happened as the issue would have been dealt with calmly and directly. Being assertive also means taking action, rather than reacting to an issue.
