Based on what you have learned this week, share at least three strategies you could use to help you communicate more effectively with the people or groups you have identified
I believe that I can use the strategy of listening. I believe that I can be more attentive and open-minded to learn more about their cultures. I can listen to what the person is saying without interruption. I will try to select all of the important information, so that I can get a better perspective of the person and their culture.
The second strategy that I can use is being of aware of my own emotions and understanding the meaning of other cultures and their emotions. I can be more aware of my own emotions, dispositions, and nonverbal skills, because I do not want to offend someone because of my body gestures. I am very sensitive; therefore I show a lot of eye contact to let the person know that I can relate to them and the diversity of cultures, however in many cultures that would be offensive.
The third strategy is learning. I believe that I can learn more about another culture, even before the conversation or communication process begins. This will help alleviate stress and tension; it will make the communication process more engaging.
