How can you communicate more effectively with colleagues and faculty from other cultures? In this workshop, you will learn the three major cultural communication styles. You'll also build an understanding of how your preferences might interact with those of your team members. By the end, you will gain concrete strategies to collaborate more effectively with colleagues from other cultures. In preparation for the workshop, all registrants must complete a communication style assessment by Thurs Feb 17, 11:59 pm.
