In this globalised world, communicating in intercultural contexts is not as easy as it may seem…
When you don’t understand someone’s behavior in intercultural context, ask questions, don’t guess through your own perception.
Be aware of your own cultural bias is a good start then listen to other people and notice similarities or differences on how messages are perceived and understood by making sure there is no misinterpretation either in words, voice tone or body language.
