Craig Storti is a renowned expert in intercultural communications whose approaches are highly practical and based on his decades of experience as an intercultural trainer throughout the world.
This hands-on resource can be used as a self-paced guide or in a facilitated (work or academic course) environment. The book enables readers to encounter and confront culture head on, to interact with and respond to it. In the process, culture will become something real and alive, something to deal with, not merely think about.
