Increased intercultural interaction and diversity – a consequence of globalisation and the attendant virtual nature of today’s work across national and cultural boundaries – is drawing attention to the inter-cultural dimensions of interpersonal and cross-organisational communication.
Over time, the workplace has witnessed a multiplicity of generations. Managing and relating across these various generations of the workforce have become a bit of a challenge. More so, in the current VUCA economy we operate, the need to acquire the right people influencing skills has become heightened..
