General communication skills Culture differences Effective communication with people of different cultures is very challenging. Cultures provide people with ways of thinking, ways of seeing, hearing and interpreting the world. Therefore the same words can mean different things to people from different cultures. When the languages are different and translation has to be used to communicate, the potential for misunderstandings increases. Such as, simple English words can mean different things in different countries.
Looking deep into the current culture of Turkey would lead one to believe that with their results in the other five dimensions mentioned above, Turkey is a culture more on the restraint side then on the indulgent side of the scale. Communicaid Group limited & MacLachlan (2013) states that restraint societies are more likely to believe that such gratification needs to be curbed and regulated by strict norms. Whereas, the U.S. score measures more on the indulgent side of the scale. Hofstede Insights (n.d.) says that it’s a society that has a tendency toward a relativity weak control over their impulses and tends to reflect in contradictory attitudes and behavior. When and if negotiating with the key leaders, it would be prudent for the U.S. leaders to be aware of this in Turkey’s culture and not take it to heart when the Turkish leaders are not quick to accept a big
DIMENSION OF CONFLICTS There exists different ways of resolving a conflict in teams. The approaches depend on personality, social relations and the situation. The two types of dimensions of conflicts are: distribution and integration. Distribution is about the concern of one’s own outcomes. And integration is about the concern of the outcomes of others.
In the case of the Inuits these can be complemented with some of Coulby’s highlights such as colonialism and neo-colonialism; warfare, victory and defeat; cultural and linguistic imperialism; nation-building and nationalism; asymmetric bilingualism; inclusion and exclusion; globalization and the knowledge economy. In terms of approach these notions summarize the current problematic weaknesses in Greenlandic education. The concept of multiculturalism in Greenland can be a bit different from the ‘traditional’ meaning of the word, since it does not involve that many different cultures directly and it is highly focused on the social and cultural differences between teachers and students, not only between the students themselves. Danish educators must be prepared to engage in the promotion of Inuit culture with special educational activities for the indigenous students, whom are considered to be marginalized groups at this point. When considering the curriculum, their perspectives and visions must be included as well, respecting their traditions but preparing them for the integration to the Western culture.
“They would think you are some extreme nationalists from the village in the west. Russian language is more international than Ukrainian” says Olena from Kyiv. Olena says that in Kyiv, Russian language definitely prevails in interpersonal communication. “Speaking Ukrainian, you immediately send the message that you are, first, from the west; second, nationalist and against Russian people; third, you demand the answer in Ukrainian. Indeed, it is far from true, of course, but the stereotypes are still powerful here”.
Stereotypes could be positive, negative and natural. It is extremely necessary to be cautions to protect one from the stereotypes. Harmful negative of stereotypes: Because of stereotypes there is a clear difference between skin colour, ethnicity, gender, age, career and other facets. These stereotypes present people to come together, share their ideas and know each other. This creates a negative feeling and relationship spoil, but this is a national phenomenon in organization.
Processes of acculturation and adaptation will play out differently in conditions of contact or isolation, harmony or prejudiced discrimination, and when groups perceive competition or disadvantage (Guimond & Tougas, 1994). The various tensions and attractions among language groups often predate current nation-states, making individual language learners tiny threads in a complex fabric of social relations. Within this context, individuals themselves differ significantly in their reaction to social situations, reactions that stem, in part, from basic personality traits (MacIntyre & Charos, 1996), including sex differences (Lin & Rancer, 2003). Evidence for the heritability of basic traits demonstrates that genetic endowment plays the key role
Name: Jez (13) Class: 410 Diversity is socially defined as all of the ways that people are culturally different from one another. Culture plays an essential role in daily life, and includes more than just race or religion; cultural groups may share ethnicity, or nationality, for instance, but can still arise from cleavages of other factors as well, such as ability and disability, political views, religious affiliation, socioeconomic class, and gender. This essay will be exploring if conflict is unavoidable when there is diversity in a nation-state, as well as focusing on the case studies of Sri Lanka and Singapore. Many disagreements and social problems leading to conflict, be it violent or nonviolent, minor or major, personal or public,
