Being a Global Citizen

3/19/2014

Learning about the cultural preferences of your colleagues will help you spot opportunities to solve problems beyond one single culture or mindset.

It also gives you a chance to take control of your work environment. If you understand why you prefer things and react to events the way you do, you will have more control over your interactions with those who have different preferences. This means being able to create the work environment you want for yourself.

Being culturally agile will also lead you to seek out diverse experiences in your workplace and life, and create partnerships with those you may not have pursued before your journey to being culturally competent.
