Truth or loss of face? 

This training is about the difference between so-called face-sensitive cultures and truth-sensitive cultures. You'll get an answer to the question: "How can I make sure that these cultural differences don't get in the way when I come into contact with people from other cultures?" When working with people from other cultures, it can be important to understand how truth and face relate to each other. What should you say... and what should you keep to yourself? This is what you'll learn in this training course.

  • 20 minutes' completion time
  • 5 chapters
  • Short and powerful
