Strategies for Global Communication in the Oil & Gas Industry

The SPE Soft Skills Committee Presents: Strategies for Global Communication in the Oil & Gas Industry
As companies expand across the globe, challenges to communications grow as well. To work effectively with others from different cultures, the first step is to recognize, and understand differences, then deal sensitively with people from other backgrounds.
To communicate effectively, a company must recognize that cultural differences (not just the language) can be a barrier to, or hinder, the effective exchange of ideas or information. All people, of all cultures, want to feel valued, respected, and understood. The challenge is in knowing which words or actions will be perceived as such, allowing for open lines of communications.
The webinar will be helpful to supervisors and managers, however, it's beneficial for upward or downward communication. I've taught this to many young professionals who want the training for a better chance to move up
The webinar will also be good for anyone who is interested in strategies to improve their communication skills internally or externally, and across cultures. There are often unknown barriers to effective communication because of the perception of the sender or receiver. It can be language, culture, or simple lack of communication.
This webinar is categorized under Business, Management, and Leadership.
