A few questions to think about …
•Have you incorporated cultural training into your current language and/or development programs? If so, what did you do?
•What challenges have you had due to cultural misunderstandings?
•Have you ever been surprised that a culturally acceptable behavior of yours was interpreted in a negative way by someone from another culture? What was that experience like? How did you handle it?
As social psychologist, Geert Hofstede, said, “If the mind is the hardware, Culture is the software. If you don’t know the software, you can’t run your program.”
