13 culture competence The knowledge, interpersonal skills, and behaviors that enable a system, organization, program, or individual to work effectively cross culturally by understanding, appreciating, honoring, and respecting cultural differences and similarities within AND between cultures. The acquisition of cultural competence is a dynamic, ongoing, developmental process that requires a long term commitment and is achieved over time. Maternal and Child Health leadership:

20 self-awareness Consider the following self assessment: I ve found that I can only change how I act if I stay aware of my beliefs and assumptions. Thoughts always reveal themselves in behavior. As humans we often contradict ourselves we say one thing and do another. We state who we are, but then act contrary to that: If we want to change our behavior, we need to notice our actions, and see if we can uncover the belief that led to that response. What caused me to behave that way and not some other way? Now consider the following self assessment tool:
21 self-assessment tool The following 15 personality related abilities are related to notions of social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual intelligence. Reflect: How well developed is this ability in my life? What life experiences have helped form this ability? Then, on a scale of 1(low) to 5 (high), assign a rating beside each attribute. ~Richard Slimbach. (2010). BECOMING WORLD WISE A GUIDE TO GLOBAL LEARNING (1st ed.). Sterling, Virginia: Stylus Publishing, LLC.

23 your abilities These abilities or personal traits appear to positively influence cultural integration and are typically formed through transitional life experiences. Study the ones you scored low and think about ways these may impact your experience. What can you do to enhance the weak abilities? The following communication strategies may assist you:
24 communication strategies Respect personal space Not in your face, female/male rules Learn and follow cultural rules about Touch In some Asian cultures a person s head shouldn t be touched because its considered the seat of wisdom and some American Indians see a vigorous hand shake as a sign of aggression Establish rapport Build relationship.

25 cont.
