Connecting across cultures can be enriching and educational, yet also challenging. Markets, world-views, customs and traditions often become barriers that prevent people from developing cross-cultural relationships. Tayo provides a framework for understanding our internal and external strategies as well as several strategies that allow us to overcome barriers to connecting across cultures.
According to Tayo, the type of people that know how to effectively connect across cultures do three things. They educate. They don't perpetuate. Instead, they communicate and in this talk, Tayo dives into just how we all can learn how to do that. In the education piece, he shares actionable strategies on how to dissect your internal culture as well as the environment around you. In this section you'll also learn different ways to recognize your biases and how to work through them.
In the don't perpetuate portion, you'll understand how perpetuating stereotypes goes beyond just saying racist jokes, microagressions but also in the information we spread and history we teach.
In the communicate portion, Tayo shares different ways to open dialogue, build trust and find common ground with people that have different values and belief systems from us.
By the end of this talk, you will learn to:
Become more self-aware of your own communication style
Communicate clearly, and
Act appropriately with people that come from different environments you do
