In negotiation, communication is how the negotiation can achieve objectives, building relationships, and resolving disputes. When dealing with counterparts from different cultural backgrounds, communication becomes an essential aspect of understanding one another (Kang, Anand, Feldman, & Schweitzer, 2020). In overcoming cultural barriers, I will have to understand their culture to receive and transfer information the intended way. Showing respect for cultural differences will take me further than ignorance as inexperienced negotiation tends to demean unfamiliar cultural practices. For example, negotiating in a foreign country, people tend to take advantage of the situation. Having a mere knowledge of their culture will make them scared of humiliating me.
