Now what is cross cultural competence really? Let me explain:
We have to be able to step out of our own perspective to understand others’.
We also need to understand our own perspective – our worldview and how we do things – in order to be able to step out of it…
Then we have to understand but also have actual knowledge about the other perspective in order to be able to step into it.
Sounds like a challenge? It is, but it is achievable, there are many people out there in the world, working across cultures, practicing this right now.
And it is cool, it expands your horizon in a way you could never have imagined.
As an extra bonus – all your relationships benefit from this.
