Culturally diverse teams are common today. Different communication styles are shaped by cultural values, language proficiency, worldviews, and norms. These factors can be
potential sources of misunderstanding and frustration, impeding the development of trusting relationships and team cohesion. We can reduce cultural barriers and strengthen
the effectiveness of our teams by being curious, seeking to understand differences, and being aware of different styles of communication. By enhancing awareness, we can
contribute towards a work environment that is both enjoyable and inclusive.
