You May Be Heard, but Are You Being Understood?

Adaptability is at the core of good communication, according to Maya Hu-Chan in an article for ATD.

Hu-Chan especially applies this idea to work done internationally, or at least when interacting in a culture that is different than what is normal for you. Do your research, via asking around or the Internet, to determine how interactions naturally occur. In any case, you want to create an atmosphere of positivity when you talk. For extra effect, slow down your speech at keywords and at points that signal a transition in what you are discussing.
