Cross-cultural Communications


Worldview is one’s personal view of the world and how one interprets it.  People in the Emerging World are rational and most “crazy” things in Africa have common sense explanations.  In the Emerging World, decision making is often relational while in the west it is results-oriented.

Conflict management tips: Be humble, assume inaccurate data or misunderstanding before incompetence or malevolence.  Be slow to anger.  Get advice.  Use a respected intermediary.
