You want to communicate with your clients and employees. You want your service or your product being appreciated, not wasted.
To create effective communication with your clients and employees, you must take into consideration their backgrounds and language skills. You must acknowledge we live in a diverse culture, where not everyone is at the same level of fluency.
Why I created the blog
As a visual artist and an immigrant living in Canada for over three decades, I observe people with diverse backgrounds and language barriers. English is my second language. For years, I faced difficulties understanding people around me, at work or as a client.
What problems I identified
- People lost me as a client because I couldn’t understand them.
- I was not happy with them letting me make costly mistakes.
- I had limited options for employment.
Now, years have passed and I see other people struggle with exactly these challenges. Many people give up on living a happy, meaningful life simply because they don’t understand the language and we have yet to see any improvement on the solutions.
Many business owners have not made any efforts to close the gap to make it easier for their clients and employees. I see resources, business owners put efforts to create, are being wasted simply because they don’t pay attention to their clients and employees.
I hate to say it, but the communication in this country is in an abysmal state.
What I hope for this blog
I hope this blog will help solve problems I have identified and provide answers to visitors who may need to improve communication with their clients or employees.
My mission is to help business owners save:
by supplementing their resources in a visual format. My intention is to publish weekly articles with new content concerning Communication in a Diverse Culture.
