[SOLVED]One of your colleagues spends a great deal of time planning her interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds.
One of your colleagues spends a great deal of time planning her interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds. Before she talks with people from a different culture, she researches their culture, tries to understand how it’s both similar and different from her own, and then tries to put herself "in their shoes" by testing how different statements might make her feel if she were from their culture. Which of the following views is MOST ACCURATE about her behavior with respect to being culturally competent?
Select : 1
- Although admirable, the most culturally competent people are authentic and her behavior is political in nature – it would be better if she just tried to be herself.
- This type of cultural learning, although requiring a lot of effort, is essential to be the most effective you can be when talking with others from different cultures.
- She is missing the most important aspect of cultural competence, learning the language of the other culture.
- She should probably spend the most time on learning about the other culture rather than comparing it to her own because this distracts from the real issues at hand.
