Skip to 0 minutes and 11 secondsThank you for completing week 4 of our cultural intelligence course. This week we reviewed cultural intelligence strategy or metacognition. The learning outcome was for you to discuss you own awareness and ability to plan for diverse interactions. We considered your ability to adapt your work style to accommodate the different ways others go about their jobs. We looked at minimizing all pilot mode, which when we're interacting with culturally different others affects how we behave. This week, we learn how strategizing and planning before a culturally diverse encounter is wise. We became more aware of the importance, or awareness and sensing the diverse perspectives of self and others. Checking our assumptions and adapting our behavior promotes effective interaction.

Skip to 1 minute and 2 secondsNext week, we will learn about CQ action or behavior. CQ behavior includes verbal and non-verbal behaviors. CQ behavior also includes speech acts or modifying the manner and the content of our communications to address diversity or cross-cultural interactions. Our learning goals for next week are for you to appraise your abilities to adapt when relating and working with diverse populations. We will also ask you to identify strategies for your own cultural intelligence improvement and development. We look forward to learning together with you next week.
