BOOK EXCERPT:

Today’s global citizens operate business and management endeavors on a global scale. Globalization generates an increasing demand for effective communication in diverse cultural contexts and challenges the relevance of culture in operating businesses in the global village. Communication differences are apparent in many scenarios. Expatriates of international organizations operating abroad adopt their native cultural values to motivate employees of foreign cultures with an entirely different perspective. They use one culture’s motives to move people from other cultures. In global marketing communication, the communicators use values systems of their native culture to develop advertising for other cultures. They use categorizations of one culture to describe others. Such divergence in attitudes, perspectives and priorities of suppliers, and customers with different cultural backgrounds have led to many project failures in international organizations. An in-depth understanding of cultural backgrounds and the potential impact on communication of the people one is interacting with can increase the probability of business success among investors, managers, entrepreneurs and employees operating in diverse cultures. However, effective cross cultural business communication needs to recognize and adopt an interdisciplinary perspective in understanding the cultural forces (Leung, K. et al., 2005). Therefore, we need a multidisciplinary paradigm to carry on effective and successful business communication in our contemporary global village. 本书构建有效的跨文化商务沟通理论模型,讨论企业商务战略、宏观社会文化、组织文化在构建企业沟通战略中的作用与影响,研究语言与文化在信息编码与解码过程中的作用,以及沟通中的有效语言策略和模糊语言策略。同时,本书结合理论模型,提出了有效的跨文化营销沟通战略、广告沟通战略和谈判沟通战略,并提供了提高沟通效率与效果的技能和方法。

BOOK EXCERPT:

From high-level business negotiations to casual conversations among friends, every interpersonal interaction is shaped by cultural norms and expectations. Seldom is this more clearly brought to light than in encounters between people from different cultural backgrounds, when dissimilar communication practices may lead to frustration and misunderstanding. This thought-provoking text presents a new framework for understanding the impact of culture on communication and for helping students build intercultural communication competence. With illustrative examples from around the globe, the book shows that verbal and nonverbal communication involves much more than transmitting a particular message--it also reflects each participant's self-image, group identifications and values, and privacy and relational needs. Readers learn to move effectively and appropriately through a wide range of transcultural situations by combining culture-specific knowledge with mindful listening and communication skills. Throughout, helpful tables and charts and easy-to-follow guidelines for putting concepts into practice enhance the book's utility for students.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Among Cultures: The Challenge of Communication, Third Edition explores intercultural communication and the relationship between communication and culture, using narrative as a common and compelling thread for studying intercultural interactions. Anchored in the position that people make sense of their worlds through choosing and telling narratives to themselves and others, this text is replete with narratives and stories. Chapters address key aspects of intercultural communication, including verbal and nonverbal communication; stereotypes and bias; identity; conflict; diversity; and ethics. Using an interpretive approach to intercultural communication, the text helps students understand that although a person may appear different, his/her common sense is quite reasonable within a particular interpretive context. Resources are included to help students understand and explain the reasonableness of other cultural systems. The text includes activities for students to complete while reading, including self-assessments and nonverbal self-knowledge tests. Reflection questions within and at the end of each chapter promote thinking and discussion on each topic. With its unique approach to studying intercultural communication via real-life narratives, this text facilitates a deep understanding of the cultural aspects of communication. In providing the narratives of others, it encourages students to tell their own stories and build a strong foundation for communicating across cultures. New to the Third Edition: New chapter—"What Role Does Culture Play in Contemporary Contexts?"—explores intercultural communication as it relates to the environment, health, and technology. New sections on identity, silence, and terms of address as important communicative practices in intercultural settings. Updated sections on honorifics, key terms, social dramas and the golden approaches to ethics.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Derived from the best-selling Handbook of International and Intercultural Communication, Second Edition, this economically priced paperback version contains only the chapters dealing with cross-cultural and intercultural communication. Cross-Cultural and Intercultural Communication provides an extensive overview of cross-cultural variations in communication and expands upon the Handbook by viewing intercultural communication in terms of intergroup communication. Intercultural communication is a relatively new area of research in the communication discipline but has made tremendous progress in recent years. The book maintains that understanding cross-cultural communication is a prerequisite to understanding intercultural communication. Part One of the book discusses cross-cultural communication—the comparison of communication across cultures—and Part Two examines intercultural communication—the communication between people from different cultures. Each part begins with an introduction, includes a chapter on theory, and ends with a chapter on issues.
