Decoding Cultural Traits

“You want excellence? Understand the person!”
-Gisela Klöss

We constantly adjust ourselves based on our surroundings. Our body language, tone of voice, and at times even our vernacular change according to our environment.

In order to successfully communicate cross-culturally, we have to first employ self-awareness and develop an understanding of our relative position to another culture. Decoding and effectively maneuvering in any culture requires a profound understanding of its foundation.

Better leaders are created through developing an understanding about how one’s culture is experienced and then learning techniques to effectively maneuver within a different culture. These skills also stimulate productivity and break down the intuitable yet invisible barriers within a multicultural environment.
