Cross-Culture Tweets – Week 10 of 2009


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.
