Communicating Across Cultures
What is a common communication style for Americans in the United States?
Linear: Americans tend to communicate points in a series of logical, sequential ideas and get to the point quickly.
Nonconfrontative: Americans sometimes try to avoid being critical of someone's work or idea even if they disagree.
Direct/Verbal: Americans emphasize problem-solving. They also prefer specific rather than vague instructions about tasks that they are expected to complete.
