In addition to being a conference interpreter and a translator, I also teach intercultural communication and business English. In this role, I’m often aware of the potential for miscommunication between people from different cultural groups. It’s important to understand diverse #communication styles—and the need to be culturally aware and sensitive when we #speak to people from cultures different than ours. https://www.toastmasters.org/magazine/magazine-issues/2018/may2018/cultural-nuances

Some of us respond poorly. We fume quietly, or we criticize, ostracize or polarize, causing more division and angst. Sometimes we confuse “different” with “difficult” and mistakenly expect others to match our own expectations. A.A. Milne quotes from his iconic Winnie the Pooh: “The things that make me different are the things that make me.” We can’t, and shouldn’t, change people. True peace comes from accepting others #Toastmasters #Leadership #CityofDelrayBeachToastmasters #PublicSpeaking https://www.toastmasters.org/magazine/magazine-issues/2018/may2018/dealing-with-challenging-personalities

You’re not alone. The competitive global economy puts leaders in a difficult position—expected to win, to “move the needle,” to get the highest ratings, rankings and results. Many leaders become hell-bent on winning, no matter what it takes, and they treat people like objects—in short, they lose their soul. https://www.toastmasters.org/magazine/magazine-issues/2018/apr2018/8-ideas

So she interrupted, making sure her voice was counted. That’s when she said she learned to ­interrupt—it became her favorite word. https://www.toastmasters.org/magazine/magazine-issues/2018/mar2018/voice-being-counted
