This metaphor is probably how we feel when we find ourselves in a strange and unfamiliar cultural atmosphere. Verbal communication and non-verbal communication may be confusing to us. We may misunderstand the meanings or experiencing discomfort.
Feeling like a fish out of water was first used in 1952 by Kalvero Oberg in his article on what is cultural shock. He coined the word dis-ease to describe a discomfort when we are confronted with a new cultural context we do not recognize.
Learning how to overcome this initial dis-ease will be addressed during our training sessions Conflict Resolution, Negotiation and Presentation Weekend Schools -8, 9 and 10 December 2017
