2BUSINESS ETHICS1. Cross-cultural communication: A business issueCross-cultural communication results in conglomeration of different cultures. Cross-cultural communication results in the sharing of preconceived knowledge from one employee tothe other. This knowledge transfer enriches the knowledge, skills and capabilities of theemployees. Moreover, cross-cultural communication brings unity within the employees, leadingto the exposure of collaborative output (Padhi, 2016). These are the positive aspects related tocross-cultural communication. Viewing the aspect from the negative connotation, cross-culturalcommunication results in difference of opinions. Herein lays the appropriateness of the truemeaning of “cross”. This differentiation gives rise to conflicts, harassments and discriminationsbreaking the unity. These conflicts compel the companies and organizations to encounternegative results in terms of the identified goals and objectives. The major drive behind this islack of adequate understanding about the regulation of the employees’ performance.

If aprofessor has this understanding, he would be able to indulge in effective communication withthe students and professors from other culture. For this, the professor needs to mix with theprofessors and students equally. This needs patience, even if the professors and students exposedifferentiation in their communication.Along with this, if the professor has adequate knowledge regarding the mindset of thestudents and professors from other cultures, it would be easier for him to communicate withoutany misunderstandings and misinterpretations (Padhi, 2016).3.

In order to sustain the position, the companies and organizations need to developcommunication capacity. Organizing lecture and seminars on diverse topics enables thepersonnel to become aware of the fluency of the employees in their linguistic skills. Thisassessment is crucial in terms of controlling the external threats.
