Following international and cultural events, news and general information helps to improve your international skills, capacity for empathy, and knowledge of different cultures.
In addition to the usual cross-cultural and international tweets and links, I started two new sets of Tweets:
- WhitePaperGals group on how white papers can get you more sales
- Cross Culture Communication Challenge Tips with the #cccctips hashtag. I will do 4 different monthly challenges to help improve cross-cultural communication skills. The March challenge is focused on mindset. The challenge is simple: read the short tips daily and reflect on what this means to you. You can find the tips here on this website or on Twitter with the #cccctips hashtag.
