People struggle with higher ambiguity and lack of clarity in communication and information reliability and overload. Change becomes the only constant, and “what worked yesterday may not work today.” Also, as humans, “we do not see the things as they are, we see things as we are” (Anais Nin), and this sometimes challenges our ability to interact effectively with people from various cultures.
