    Getting in the Deep

    In this age of globalization, it is imperative to strive for unity in diversity. Acquiring the skill of intercultural communication will facilitate resolving conflicts in a multicultural environment. Intercultural communication could be described as scenarios when two or more individuals from different cultures exchange messages in a manner that is influenced by their cultural perceptions and symbol systems, both verbal and nonverbal. Finding common ground in these situations can be challenging and may lead to misunderstandings. With today’s global work scenario, there is increasing need to acquaint ourselves with the knowledge and art of dealing with people of different cultural backgrounds.
