Are u able to stay silent?
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.

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.
