Culture
The Intercultural Development Continuum
Relationships of power and privilege
In any situation, our expectations consist of a combination of our values, beliefs and experiences in relation to the particulars of the situation. We experience others through the impact of their words, actions and attitudes relative to our expectations.

How closely these match our expectations determines the amount of ineffectiveness and discomfort we experience trying to communicate across cultural differences.

Why is the ability to work across difference important?

Exploring Culture
What is Intercultural Competency?
Culture is:
When our expectations about what is right, good or correct are not met during an interaction .
Shared by many members of a group
Learned from imitation, rules, corrected mistakes
"It's better to let sleeping dogs lie"
Messages you may have heard....
Passed on from generation to generation
Constantly, but slowly, changing
Culture is like the air we breathe...
When do we experience cultural difference?
This leads to misunderstanding and frustration
Which is correct?
Knowledge, beliefs, values, behaviors
"Honesty is the best policy"
"Say what you mean and mean what you say"
"It's respectful to look people in the eyes when they're speaking to you"
"It's disrespectful to look people in the eyes when they're speaking to you"
Expectations
Values

Behaviors
Culture is the sum of our expectations around how the world works and makes sense in our lives.

Intercultural Competence Requires:
Awareness
… of your values, cultures, assumptions.
… of other cultures -- their values, beliefs, and behaviors.
... to use self-awareness and knowledge to engage in culturally appropriate behavior.
(Einfeld & Collins 2008)
Knowledge
Skill
Facilitates achieving shared goals

Moves from stereotypes to cultural generalizations
The ability to shift cultural perspectives
and adapt behavior to cultural differences
Stereotypes
are evaluative over-exaggerations in which personal traits are assigned to a whole group of people

Cultural generalizations
are neutral, descriptions of a group’s preferences and its variation from other group’s preferences
Typically framed in a negative manner
Are less complex and reduce an entire group to a single trait.
Stereotypes vs. Cultural Generalizations:
No value judgments are implied
Support more complex perceptions and experiences of cultural difference
Recognize your own cultural expectations about appropriate behavior and respect.
Recognizing the cultural differences and expectations of other groups
The skill to coordinate self-awareness and knowledge of other cultures.
For example: "White people can't dance" or "Asians are good at math"
Intercultural competence is a lifelong journey
