  1. 2020/03/30, Asymmetries in the Distribution of Power in the Multicultural Workplace: Reducing Imbalances with Intercultural Competence, When interacting at workplaces with communicators from different backgrounds interactants are often exposed to culture-specific perceptions, assumptions, expectations and practices which are reflected in power relations in intercultural communication. In these contexts, because of certain ideological values dominant communicators employ, there is a risk of creating unequal power relations or interactional dominance demonstrated by a particular group. In addition, because communicators from different backgrounds have certain views based on their cultural practices, their perceptions of power relations may be conflicting. Looking at power asymmetry and conflicting views on power relations in intercultural workplace can help us cope with potential misunderstandings and frustrations., Asymmetries in the Distribution of Power in the Multicultural Workplace: Reducing Imbalances with Intercultural Competence, Cross-Cultural Communication Strategy-Language and Power/ Issues of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF)/ Developing Intercultural Competence/ Power Relations and Interactional Dominance/ Implications for Balancing Power Relations in the Multicultural Workplace, Keisuisha, 2020, 03, Scholarly Book, Single work, English, ISBN978-4-86327-517-1, 202, 202
