Human beings are social creatures. Different societies represent different cultures. The persona we keep in the public is an attempt to maintain a cultural ‘face’ in the society. The cultural differences in the society create and shape communication as a response to conflicts. It has an immense effect on group and interpersonal communications. The five conflict styles depend on two dimensions: an individual’s approach to his or her own culture and to other cultures. Conflict management is very important for cultural approach.
