52 Activities For Improving Cross-Cultural Communications

If you are looking for specific steps you can take to improve your intercultural business communication, consider checking out 52 Activities for Improving Cross-Cultural Communication. This book specifically explores cross-cultural communication issues with an eye toward increasing cross-cultural understanding and effectiveness.

As the authors point out, “Communication styles and patterns differ vastly among people from different cultures” with every culture having their own “communication style norm.” When these specific styles mix with others, stereotypes begin and sometimes inaccurate perceptions arise.

This practical trainer’s manual includes applications from many sectors and angles: business, diversity, cross-cultural fields, and from trainers in the U.S., Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

There is something for everyone in this book: those who like hands-on, practical activities; those who prefer experiential exercises; and those who learn best if they can reflect on ideas.


Donna Stringer, the president of Executive Diversity Services, is a social/developmental psychologist with several years of experience as a cross-cultural educator and trainer.

Patricia Cassiday is an educator and consultant on topics related to guidance, third culture kids, total quality education and student assessment.
