  • Hone your ability to work with others different from you.

  • Use cultural guides to plan and implement programming;
  • Recognize cultural conflict styles;
  • Understand the barriers to intercultural communications;
  • Ask more questions;
  • Listen more carefully; and
  • Look for non-verbal cues from those with whom they communicate.
