The iceberg model of culture reminds viewers of the complexity that culture really is. When Hofstede's six taxonomies become a bit complex to track, a quick look at this model goes far toward understanding what might have gone wrong in cross-cultural communication scenarios.
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Pellegrino Riccardi is an expert on cross-cultural communication and in this presentation discusses how our perceptions and expectations affect cross-cultural communication. He also uses examples from his life living in Norway as an Italian expat, and the cultural differences he experiences there.
I chose this video because I found it interesting how Michael Gavin explained cultural diversity as different ways of seeing the world and points out the interesting fact of where we would be today without other cultures.
