John Michel's curator insight, July 13, 2013 2:44 PM

In a recent Economist Intelligence Unit report, Competing Across Borders, 49% of the 572 executives interviewed said that intercultural communication problems had resulted in a financial setback or loss. I would welcome a statistic on what percentage of these problems was simply due to silence and how that silence was interpreted by people from various cultures. I am convinced that silence can cause the kinds of barriers that the report indicates are being erected every day, due to ignoring the need for an intercultural communication strategy on the part of these international companies.

Johnna Hayes's curator insight, July 14, 2013 5:54 PM

We  think about how others may receive our words, but our silences may say just as much...knowing what those silences may mean to others can make a difference.

Mark P's curator insight, August 30, 2013 8:40 PM

Critical and often missing piece of socio-cultural understanding - listening to silence is a first step in the process, understanding and adapting to its meaning is a critical component of any successful international business strategy.

2013 Board Leadership and Culture Study

2013 Board Leadership and Culture Study | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Corporate Board Member and CTPartners collaborated in the spring of 2013 to produce the Board Leadership and Culture Survey, designed to study the evolving dynamics that exist between public company boards and senior leadership teams. The premise of the study was that public company performance hinges largely on the ability of these two key groups to work together and make sound decisions on risk, strategy, and leadership continuity, and thus, factors affecting these dynamics play a critical role in organizational success.
