Culture is an invisible and inescapable force that skews our objectivity, shapes our motives, and clouds our judgment. It can create friction and misunderstandings in work teams and close relationships.
Recognizing its influence is a disciplined effort. There are insights to be gained and skills that you can learn to make you a better coworker, ministry partner, friend, and spouse.
Embracing humility is foundational in cultural agility. By setting aside preconceptions, we create space for genuine understanding, fostering deeper connections across diverse cultural landscapes.
Active hearing is pivotal in cultural navigation. Truly listening to diverse voices broadens our perspectives, fosters empathy, and bridges the gaps that cultural differences can sometimes present.
