Here is a small very useful methodology for respectful communication:

Take responsibility for what you say and feel without blaming others.

Choose empathic listening

Be sensitive to the different communication styles

Take time to reflect on what you feel and what you hear before intervening

Examine your prejudices and perceptions

Guard confidentiality

Take advantage of ambiguities because we are not there to find out who is wrong and who is right

To live in an international and intercultural community can be learned. This is built with steps going forward and steps going backward. There are many joys and also some necessary forgiveness.

During our early years of formation to religious missionary life, we learn how to discover the richness of our cultures, languages, different countries. We also learn to communicate in a respectful manner.
