Importance of Cross-culture Communication for Canadian Workplaces

Listen On

Canada’s plan to welcome a record number of newcomers over the next few years means businesses will need to prioritize cross-cultural communication skills to support them and the success of their operations.

We got the chance to chat with Shai Dubey, a professor at the Smith School of Business. Shai Dubey teaches negotiations, cross-cultural management, ethics, domestic and international business law and entrepreneurship courses. He is the academic director for project courses in various MBA programs and the MIB program. 

In this podcast, Shai discussed the dimensions of communication that are informed by culture, why cross-cultural communication is of growing strategic importance for Canadian workplaces and how businesses can bridge the intercultural workstyles gap and set newcomers up for success.
