Chapter One; The challenges of organizational communications:
Three types of challenges;
External; no control over these challenges, ex. Legislation
Internal; Organizational culture. It is different then your national culture (National culture
overrules organizational culture) If we look at Canada we are more of a individualistic
country and we care more so for ourselves then anything else, which changes the way we
think and function in our organization. Organizations are social identities.
Challenges in our complicated world;
Globalization; moving beyond your national boundaries to do business with other
countries. Connect and Interact with other countries. Provide more opportunities for jobs
throughout the world.
Terrorism; Organizations keep working on working to make their employees safe and
informing people to be more sensitive and knowledgeable with skills to deal with people
of any culture background. Improve communications, debates with everyone.
