Cultures have never been closer. Once separated by oceans and borders, cultures are now within range of phone calls, emails, or screens. Cultures must not only coexist: they also have to learn how to communicate and interact with one another, often in order to reach common goals. Of course, it is impossible to have a good command of every culture’s details. However, gaining some principles is useful to better manage and make the most of intercultural relations.
