Planning activity

In this assigned activity or exercise we ask you to make application of your CQ strategy: planning. Perhaps you will make use of your learning from week one.

Think about the challenges you most consistently face when working with different cultures or diversity. Based on these challenges, develop a few “If-Then” scenarios. What are several culturally intelligent responses?

For example, what might you say using your cultural intelligence if a coworker made a racist comment? How might you handle a vendor who does not deliver on time?

For this step, we simply wish for you to reflect and then write a short paragraph describing the situation. Using high CQ, write another paragraph discussing what you might say or do.

After completing your writing, please mark this step complete.
