In this course we discuss communicating your full vision of change. The approach of storytelling is used to create connection. The concepts of International English are introduced to increase clarity of messaging across non-native speakers of English.

We then discuss common sources of resistance that occur specifically in creating change across cultures. We explore ways to overcome those objections. Finally, we discuss important suggestions and reminders to successful implementation of the change.
