Communicate Clearly with US Americans

Fluency Strategies for Expats in the USA

Amita Yathirajadas

 Previously at Moody's Analytics, India

"One of my team members, who excels at his work, was facing problems in articulating his thoughts. Jennifer spent time with him and realised that the primary reason why he was failing to communicate his thoughts was because he did not know how to create an outline or structure his speech/thoughts. She worked with him with great dedication and I must state as an observation here that Jennifer is very sensitive to people’s cultural and religious sentiments. As an American she shared a lot of her experiences in cross cultural communication and explained in simple terms an ordinary American’s expectation and tolerance level. All of this information with monitored practice has helped my team member overcome his communication weak point to a great extent. He now is a more confident person and is able to express himself well and my clients have taken a note of the same and now do see the real merits of my team member."
