This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Pellegrino Riccardi is an expert on cross-cultural communication and in this presentation discusses how our perceptions and expectations affect cross-cultural communication. He also uses examples from his life living in Norway as an Italian expat, and the cultural differences he experiences there.
Many of the exercises are written with instructions that address needs for a specific audience (e.g., gender or generation). Stringer and Cassiday have written and adapted sound, ready-to-use activities for settings where the exploration of cross-cultural communication would be beneficial: the workplace, the classroom, human resources programs, ESL classes, corporate diversity training, international team development workshops, conflict management and others.
