Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, European School of Business Reutlingen (Business Administration), course: Lecture, language: English, abstract: Intercultural communication is becoming more and more essential in a globalized world. A couple of years ago, only international managers or diplomats needed to think about intercultural communication and its challenges. Today, this has changed and ordinary people from all over the world and different cultural backgrounds come into contact with each other on a regular base.The different reasons, primarily driven by technology and globalization as well as the related challenges are presented in the following pages.This paper presents different frameworks, which help to describe and understand the important elements and issues in intercultural communication. The presented models accept as a prerequisite that all individuals are being affected or interrelated by multiple cultures in various amounts and purposes. The Intercultural Communication Model, the Rainbow Model, A Contextual Model of Intercultural Communication as well as the recent Dimensional Value Framework will be presented and explained in this paper.All of the four frameworks theorize the relationship between communication and culture while using different approaches and assumptions. As a first result it can be said, that there is no universal valid model on how to com...

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1,7, Stralsund University of Applied Sciences, course: Intercultural communication, 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Communication is everything. Nowadays communication is involved in every part of our life. Interactions and interrelations between different people is the basis for social competences, politics, economy, education and many things more. Since we live in a global world we always have to deal with lots of different cultures. And every culture has its own understanding of communication, does use different communication systems. Above that every single human being of a cultural system has its own personality and values. We need a common basis where we can establish competent behaviour. We have to have a look at the collusion to avoid irritations and misunderstandings. Normally intercultural communication deals with differences/ problems between members of different cultures. But this aspect can be transmitted to the communication within one country. A special part of this topic is the situation in Germany under the aspect of communication and cultural differences. Germany has a special position in Europe caused by its history. The separation between East and West is still a topic to refer to. The collusion and the similarities are partially smaller than expected after 16 years of the reunification. In the following essay different aspects of communication and intercultural be...

Conspicuously, the world becomes a global village. More and more students and professions study and/or work abroad. For more effective intercultural communication, it is necessary for us to pay attention to both the study and experience of intercultural communication apprehension (ICA). This research investigates international students’ perceptions of ICA. The research is conducted from an interpretive paradigm by engaging in the methodology of autoethnography and long interviews. By autoethnography, the researcher constructs a portrait of herself and looks critically at her own experiences of CA and ICA. By deeply analyzing international students’ experiences and understandings of CA and ICA, this research reveals the relationships between ICA and language, ICA and situational conditions, as well as ICA and culture. For reducing ICA, three types of strategies are suggested…

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,3, University of Flensburg, language: English, abstract: A lot of people think that communication isn't more than decoding a message that an information source transmits through a channel to you- you in this case are the destination where the message arrives (see Chandler (2000) p.1). The chosen words, the accentuation and the circumstances of the talk (e.g. on the phone, private or institutional dialogue) sometimes show how something is meant by the speaker but this aren't the only important cues during a communication process. You should also take care of the nonverbal cues everyone sends to a receiver of a message like gestures (Archer (1991)) and the culture of the specific information source.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Didactics, Economic Pedagogy, grade: 1,0, Berlin School of Economics, 96 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The purpose of the present thesis is to examine if and to which extent cultures converge in an international business environment and if intercultural competence has a bearing on it. Therefore, theoretical and practical insights in the subject of culture, its implicit and explicit differences, as well as its measurements will be provided. Due to the fact that communication - as a major cultural attribute - is the most obvious level on which cultural differences are recognized, insights in the topic of cross-cultural and intercultural communication will be given. A thorough discussion of the concept of culture and communication is beyond the scope of this paper, but in what follows, an adequate overview of recognized and well-known researchers' theories and findings will be provided. Besides giving theoretical background knowledge, it will be examined whether the internationally defined soft skills of intercultural competence can be seen as an approach towards a universal interculture, likewise a universal communication. The topic of the present thesis will be illustrated by a case study, as well as researched and evaluated by a field study conducted at one of the most culturally diverse organization - the United Nations. Findings should only expose tendencies to confirm or d...

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Beratung, Therapie, Note: 1,0, Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Veranstaltung: Intercultural Communication, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: To date, Intercultural Systemic Coaching is a theoretically disregarded coaching approach. The central question is how the theoretical concept of Intercultural Systemic Coaching can be described and which are its potential practical characteristics and consequences. Hence, this paper delivers theoretical fundamentals of systemic, culture and coaching theories, to combine them and thereby creating a fundamental understanding of the in practice of Intercultural Coaching relevant coaching modes. From the angle of constructivism Systemic Coaching is viewed as an approach, videlicet as a manner and mode of how Intercultural Coaching can be conducted. In contrast, Intercultural Coaching can be understood as the content that defines amongst others coaching topics and target group. That is to say Systemic Coaching is the context with Intercultural Coaching as its content. In conclusion, Mietusch devises a definition of the scientifically unnoticed phenomena Intercultural Systemic Coaching and drafts a model design of intercultural systemic contexts beneficial in its practice.Keywords: Intercultural Systemic Coaching, Intercultural Coaching, Systemic Coaching

Essay from the year 2007 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,0, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, course: Language and Cross-Cultural Communication, language: English, abstract: The world is growing together. In the wake of globalization many companies have expanded their markets to countries around the world. No matter if in Europe, America, Africa, Asia or Australia - everywhere we are greeted by the familiar corporate logos of global players like Coca Cola, McDonald's and Burger King. I would like to suggest that an important factor of the international success of these companies are specialised marketing concepts, which are based on the individual culture of the respective target country. Intercultural communication seems therefore an important element in marketing products worldwide. In this essay, I will have a look at a company whose name has become synonymous with globalization: McDonald's. The development of the term "McDonaldization" shows that the company's strategy of efficiency, calculability, predictability and control is effective around the globe (Ritzer in Usunier 2000; Jandt 2004).

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät - Fachbereich Anglistik), course: Intercultural Communications, language: English, abstract: "Idioms, the colourful side of languages, are one of the symbols used while we are communicating our thoughts and feelings. They are used to give life and richness to the language by taking the existing words, combining them in a new sense, and creating new meanings, just like a work of art." (LEN-NON, 1998, cited in BULUT; ÇELIK-YAZICI, 2004: 105)This combination of existing words "like a work of art" represents a huge challenge for non-native speakers they have to cope with in their language learning process. In the context of intercultural communication, non-native and native speakers interact with each other and often make use of idioms and other fixed expressions as "the colourful side of languages", because they are used to it from their usual communication in their first languages. However, these fixed expressions constitute a special part of the language use due to particular characteristics, which will be explored further in this term paper. Consequently, communication between non-native and native speakers does not always runs smoothly when phraseological language comes into play. Amongst others, the cultural boundedness as well as native-like creative exploitations of the fixed expressions re...

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,3, European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) (Faculty of Cultural Studies), course: Master Intercultural Communication Studies, language: English, abstract: Humour accompanies one daily: It is widely used in movies, and it is intentionally used in everyday life. One can recognize that humour makes one feel good, relieves tensions (created by inter- and intrapersonal conflicts) and its charming character connects, bonds and unites us with the people surrounding us. Further, scientific therapeutic discourses identified humour and its popular response laughter benefits mental health and social contacts and therefore should be used in therapeutic practices. Hence, it is suggested to rethink humour not only as a therapeutic instrument, but also as a usefultool in counselling settings like Intercultural Coaching and Training.For now, one only knows that in intercultural settings the practice of humour is delicate due to cultural differences. But is there a humour that works beyond cultures? Why is it possible that for example a Brazilian and a Chinese person could laugh (as a response to a humorous message) together about the same humorous interaction? From a transcultural research angle the question of how to use a transcultural humour in intercultural coaching and training settings becomes relevant. Thus, the presentstudy will examine the application and practice of hu...

A guide to strategic communication that can be applied across a range of subfields at all three levels—grand strategic, strategic, and tactical communication Communication is a core function of every human organization so when you work with communication you are working with the very core of the organization. Written for students, academics, and professionals, Strategic Communication Theory and Practice: The Cocreational Model argues for a single unified field of strategic communication based in the three large core subfields of public relations, marketing communication, and health communication, as well as strategic communicators working in many other subfields such as political communication, issues management, crisis communication, risk communication, environmental and science communication, social movements, counter terrorism communication, public diplomacy, public safety and disaster management, and others. Strategic Communication Theory and Practice is built around a cocreational model that shifts the focus from organizational needs and the messages crafted to achieve them, to a publics-centered view placing publics and their ability to cocreate new meanings squarely in the center of strategic communication theory and practice. The author—a noted expert in the field—outlines the theories, campaign strategies, common issues, and cutting edge challenges facing strategic communication, including the role of social media, ethics, and intercultural strategic communication. As the author explains, the term «strategic communication» properly refers only to the planned campaigns that grow out of research and understanding what publics think and want. This vital resource answers the questions of whether, and how, strategic-level skills can be used across fields, as it: Explores the role of theory and the cocreational meta-theory in strategic communication Outlines ethical practices and problems in the field Includes information on basic campaign strategies Offers the most recent information on risk communication, preparedness and terrorism communication, and employment in strategic communication Redefines major concepts, such as publics, from a cocreational perspective

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, , language: English, abstract: The researcher of this paper is interested in analyzing spoken discourse. Due to the absence of cross-cultural awareness there could be a high obstacle in understanding the message that is perfect linguistically. This could generally mirror pragmatic failure and in particular, in the classrooms.This research paper therefore aims at analyzing many conversations to the language in use in different contexts for achieving the following: - Highlighting the importance of intercultural awareness betweenEnglish speakers / learners as well as the problems caused by itsabsence.- Analyzing different spoken discourses on pragmatic failure interms of words, sentence, discourse and Intonation.- Defining the intercultural competence, pragmatic competenceand discourse analysis.- Presenting the relationship between the discourse analysis andculture.- Recommending pedagogical implications to English authors,teachers, educational policy makers and learners.As the number of non-native speakers has become recently increasing and has surpassed the number of native speakers, the culture of non-native speakers could not be ignored in the interaction between non-native speakers to native speakers or between the non-native speakers to native-speakers. Hence, the importance of cultural dimension in communicative competence has been also increasing between English ...

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,0, LMU Munich (Institut für Kommunikationswissenschaft- und Medienforschung (IfKW)), course: Intercultural Competence, language: English, abstract: "Culture" has become so broad a term that it is almost impossible to find the right angle or an allencompassing example to begin this article with. Although, Hall stated that "culture is a word that has so many meanings already that one more can do it no harm" it is not the aim of this article to contribute yet another "meaning". Rather than adding to the vast amount of research on what "culture" is and where it comes from this article aims at making the case for why culture matters and how it can be properly analysed. The view put forth in this vein suggests that the analysis of cultural issues which lies at the heart of intercultural communication is one of the most important scientific endeavours of contemporary times. Prior to elaborating on the details of this endeavour it is necessary to address two crucial facts that emphasize the relevance of the applied approach as well as of intercultural communication in general. First, as numerous researchers and scholars have repeatedly pointed out the globalisation is expected to continue at even faster rate than before. As a result of immigration that comes along with the process of globalisation - and that will continue to come along despite current...

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences (Wirtschaft 2 - IBIS), language: English, abstract: Today, communication between different cultures becomes more and more necessary due to (1) economic changes such as globalisation, (2) political changes i.e. the formation of international communities, or problems which do not care about borders, and thus problem solving cannot either, and (3) changes in personal lifestyle.But communication is already a complex process for members of the same culture. In interaction with different cultures, it is even more difficult to establish the true intention of the sender of a message. Misunderstandings and communication breakdowns are part of intercultural business reality. Difficulties can arise through language barriers, misinterpretation of verbal and non-verbal behaviour or different shared values and experiences. Other reasons for communication difficulties are ethnocentrism, stereotypes and prejudices.This thesis provides an insight in the challenge of offshoring French IT projects to India.

This project focused on answering did the improved communication resulting from the mentoring program lead to improved patient interactions and ultimately improved patient satisfaction as evidenced by their Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey results. The project studied 78 nurses randomly selected from the nurses on a Southwest telemetry unit. Nurses were then assigned the role of mentor or mentee. To qualify as a mentor, the nurse had to speak fluent English have an above average employment evaluation. The director of the unit approved the mentor mentee assignments. The communication section of the HCAHPS survey was compared from the time frame in 2016 to the exact same time frame in the year previously. A statistical analysis of the data revealed there was no difference in communication by nurses based on the mentor - mentee program outcomes as demonstrated on the HCAHPS survey results. It can be concluded that the mentor program may not be cost and time effective.

Open access has transformed the traditional way of scientific communication. Open repositories and open access journals provide large and free access to articles, theses and dissertations, reports, working papers, proceedings and books but also to other unpublished items, multimedia files and raw data. Fifteen years after the landmark Budapest Declaration, this book invites the reader to a critical assessment of the concept and the reality of open access, with a special attention to its impact in the countries of the Global South.The success of open access for the dissemination of scientific information cannot be denied. Yet, the growing numbers of OA journals, articles and books should not keep the scientists and librarians from a critical posture towards the reality beyond figures and statistics. Most publications on open access give the impression that there are only benefits and no alternatives to open access. It is time to abandon this blend of marketing, politics and technology-driven ideology and to return to a more scientific and critical stance.This book brings together seventeen short critical studies by scientists and librarians from different continents, all interested in open access, most of them supporting and accompanying the open access projects and initiatives since many years, each one with the motivation to better understand (and make understood) the ongoing transformation of scientific communication. Some topics: the discursive staging of open access, mis/...

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 2 (B), Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Economics), course: Intercultural Communication, language: English, abstract: Through the process of globalization, managers often have to deal with people from other countries with different cultural backgrounds. This cultural background includes not only the language; it means a completely different way of feeling, thinking, behaving and as a result also conflict management. Constructive conflict management is a competence which is of particular importance in international management. Furthermore, in an intercultural context, a manager not only needs to know how to handle conflicts in general, but also how his negotiation partners usually deal with them. This is important because the right way to solve a conflict i. e. in North America is not necessarily the right way in Indonesia. When coping with conflicts in international business negotiations, international managers must be aware of the fact that appropriate ways of solving conflicts in Western cultures like North America can very often be completely unacceptable in Asian cultures like Indonesia. The aim of this paper is to analyse typical conflict management strategies in North America and Indonesia, thereby highlighting major differences in appropriate conflict management between them.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Essen, language: English, abstract: The usage of E-Mails as a rather new means of communication has increased steadily since its inception in 1971. Whether for private or business matters, the increasing im-portance and coherently high amount of E-Mail communication can be problematic: Important information gets lost in too much communication.Especially for project management, due to limited time and resources as well as having the right information at the right time shared with the right persons, it has become vital to use E-Mails efficiently. Therefore the inherent question is, what efficient E-Mail communication is and how it can be increased in project management? Most of the recent literature about project management does not provide an integrated guide considering communicational aspects in project management and classic commu-nication theories. Furthermore none of the project management literature is focusing on e-mail communication in particular.This paper has the objective to provide a guideline to increase efficiency of E-Mail communication in projects by integrating communicational aspects of the project man-agement theory and of the general communications theory. The objective is therefore not to create a handbook for a universally applicable E-Mail. Due to the length restrictions of...

Mankind is using a greater variety of metals in greater quantities than ever before. As a result there is increasing global concern over the long-term availability of secure and adequate supplies of the metals needed by society. Critical metals, which are those of growing economic importance that might be susceptible to future scarcity, are a particular worry. For many of these we have little information on how they are concentrated in the Earth’s crust, how to extract them from their ores, and how to use, recycle and dispose of them effectively and safely. Published with the British Geological Survey, the Critical Metals Handbook brings together a wealth of knowledge on critical metals and provides a foundation for improving the future security and sustainability of critical metal supplies. Written by international experts, it provides a unique source of authoritative information on diverse aspects of the critical metals, including geology, deposits, processing, applications, recycling, environmental issues and markets. It is aimed at a broad non-specialist audience, including professionals and academics working in the exploration and mining sectors, in mining finance and investment, and in mineral processing and manufacturing. It will also be a valuable reference for policy makers concerned with resource management, land-use planning, eco-efficiency, recycling and related fields.
