A study is conducted to examine the differences in communication patterns between Chinese and Americans in conflict resolution. It tests the applicability of
Thomas-Kilmann's Conflict MODE Instrument (1974) in the Chinese context. The preliminary observation is that Chinese tend to adopt a long-term relationship buidling approach in negotiation during conflicts rather than an approach which treats negotiation as discrete rounds of manipulation to obtain maximum gains for their side. This study throws light to a cultural-context approach to communication studies.
Advice to students:
Professionalism is more than knob-turning or key-punching.
