Bridging Cultural Conflicts

A New Approach for a Changing World

"This much needed book . . .is a creative, helpful, and hopeful contribution at a time when we are especially challenged to bridge cultures in the pursuit of mutual understanding and peace." —Jimmy Carter, Nobel Peace Laureate In our global society, challenging conflicts abound in personal, business, government, and international settings. Many of these conflicts are complicated by layers of miscommunication, cultural misunderstandings, and completely different ways of looking at the world. These conflicts cannot be solved by goodwill or sincere intentions alone. In our multicultural world, we need new tools to address gaps in communication and understanding and the conflicts that flow from them. Bridging Cultural Conflicts answers this need in groundbreaking ways that cut through complexity, replacing confusion with clarity. It introduces mindful awareness, cultural fluency, and conflict fluency as tools for decoding and moving through intercultural conflicts, and for deepening and integrating change. The book shows how fluency with culture and conflict can be learned through attention and practice, just as we would internalize a new language. As fluency is acquired, a process called dynamic engagement is presented to help prevent intercultural conflict, limit its escalation, and transform it into a learning experience. Michelle LeBaron's approach in Bridging Cultural Conflicts is human, practical, and adaptable to a wide range of interpersonal, community, organizational, and political conflicts. Drawing from her work as an attorney, mediator, scholar, and internationally acclaimed consultant, Michelle combines the dynamism of Western approaches to conflict resolution with the insight and balance of Eastern approaches. In the process, she offers a wide array of creative strategies and usable tools. As we urgently seek better ways to work and live together and to address the issues that divide us, this timely book inspires flexibility, creativity, and hope.

In this fully updated Fifth Edition of Intercultural Communication, author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual circular model for examining communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, perceptual contexts, and verbal and nonverbal codes. The text begins with the broadest context; the cultural component of the model and progresses chapter by chapter through each component of the model. The later chapters then apply the model to the development and maintenance of intercultural relationships, the management of intercultural conflict, intercultural management, intercultural adaptation, culture shock, and intercultural competence.

This book explores communication, culture, and intercultural communication. The emphasis is on promoting understanding of and appreciation for the rich and varied perspectives encountered in intercultural communication opportunities. Interdisciplinary in nature, the book focuses on the need to develop self-understanding as a first step to intercultural understanding, and highlights the need for the intercultural state of mind to match our multicultural world, the difficulties inherent in the quest of such an objective, the excitement of challenges on the way and the rewards of the success that are sputtering with new energy and yet waiting to be discovered. Furthermore, the book represents an initial step in the process of building competencies which may facilitate effective communication in all types of cross-cultural settings. It gives a unique outlook of how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavor to communicate across cultures. The book grows out of the philosophy that developing better interpersonal, intercultural communication skills will profoundly benefit the seven billion people who share this planet and who increasingly interact with each other by producing some guidelines with which people can successfully cope with the realities of cultural diversity, the challenges of living in a multicultural world, the need to transcend the unpredictability of intercultural interactions, the accompanying fears that such interactions often encompass, and the feeling of joy and comfort in the discovery of cultural diversity.

Published in cooperation with the Speech Communication Association Division on International and Intercultural Communication "The editors should be commended, as the volume presents the latest thinking and research from scholars within the intercultural field and, more broadly, from the speech communication discipline. For those interested in learning more about various communication-based theories and approaches to the study of intercultural competence I highly recommend they take a close look at this book. I found the introductory chapter by Koester, Wiseman, and Sanders extremely valuable in integrating the various perspectives represented by the authors. Their discussion of the starting points for the study of the intercultural communication competence. . . was very well written. Part I focused on conceptual issues, and it includes and excellent review article by Judith Martin about the various approaches taken in the study of intercultural communication competence. William Gudykunst's anxiety/uncertainty management chapter is perhaps the clearest and most practical extension to date of his extensive theoretical research program on uncertainty and anxiety reduction processes. It is tightly written with examples and elaborated explanations of key constructs that relate to intercultural effectiveness. I found this chapter [Myron Lustig and Brian Spitzberg's methodological concerns relevant to the study of intercultural communication competence] to be one of the most targeted analyses of research methods for examining communication competence within the distinctly different intercultural arena. This chapter provides a blueprint for research design decision making on studying the difficult phenomenon of intercultural communication competence. . . .Donal Carbaugh's ethnographic approach for identifying the verbal means and meanings in social interaction is exciting, creative, insightful, and practical. I highly recommend Intercultural Communication Competence for a graduate-level theory course in intercultural communication and, more generally, for any course that focuses on cross-cultural interaction. Further, this book would be a welcome addition for a graduate-level intercultural research course.Overall, Wiseman and Koester have edited a high-quality intercultural book that focuses on a complex communication phenomenon. I urge anyone interested in this important topic to read Intercultural Communication Competence. --Mitchell R. Hammer, The American University, International Journal of Intercultural Relations Contemporary societies have witnessed the greatest migration of human populations in recorded history. Accordingly, interactions among citizens of these societies are becoming increasingly intercultural. By gathering the most current research, theories, and methods from the leading scholars in the field, Intercultural Communication Competence is the state-of-the-art study on intercultural communication competence and effectiveness. Part I analyzes the conceptual decisions made in intercultural communication competence research by examining decisions regarding conceptualization, operationalization, research design, and sampling. In Part Two, the contributors present four different theoretical orientations while illustrating how each person's theoretical bias directs the focus of research. The essays in the final section examine both qualitative and quantitative approaches to intercultural communication competence research. With exemplary conceptual and empirical studies, scholars, researchers, teachers, and students alike will find a wealth of information in this tightly edited book.

divdivCross-cultural competence is a skill that has become increasingly essential for the managers in multinational companies. For other business people, this kind of competence may spell the difference between surviving and perishing in the new global economy. This book focuses on the dilemmas of these managers and offers constructive advice on dealing with culture shock and turning it to business advantage. Opposing values can be understood as complementary and reconcilable, say Charles Hampden-Turner and Fons Trompenaars. A manager who concentrates on integrating rather than polarizing values will make much better business decisions. Furthermore, the authors show, wealth is actually created by reconciling values-in-conflict. Based on fourteen years of research involving nearly 50,000 managerial respondents and on the authors’ extensive experience in international business, the book compares American cultural values to those of more than forty other nations. It explores six culture-defining dimensions and their reverse images (universalism-particularism, individualism-communitarianism, specificity-diffusion, achieved status–ascribed status, inner direction–outer direction, and sequential time–synchronous time) and discusses them as alternative ways of coping with life’s—and business’s—exigencies. With humor, cartoons, and an array of business examples, the authors demonstrate how the reconciliation of cultural differences can cause whole organizations to grow healthier, wealthier, and wiser. /DIV/DIV
