What factores determine the way I am? What makes up my culture? Why is my culture so different from others? What is this person like? Why are they this way? The action of moving across cultures is different and challenging one It requires a degree of adjustment and adaptation that is not found in any other type of social interaction. because so many aspects of the new situation differ from the prier ones To make things more difficult, many of the rules that we learned in one or more than one culture, may not be useful in a new culture. In fact, many of the lessons learned in one culture were often interfere successful adaptation in a new culture Culture adaptations is available moving target and requires a set of hardly and complex cognitive and meta-cognitive skills. Consisting with conceptual framework of educational philosophers like: John Dewey, Piaget and David kolb Cultural intelligence or CQ approaches the task of becoming multiculturally effective and fruitful to the lead of motivation, cognition and behavior. These components have been research and found to be applicable in the attempt to provide leaders with the survival kit, to improve and enhance their willingness to be cross-cultural. Their capacity to be successful cross-cultural agents and their ability to adapt and adjust the different cultural situations. Because of the immense challenges posed by demanding to interact in multicultural situations. CQ is a survival kid. Through the CQ enhancement seminar sponsored by the US and Canada regional office, we seek to equip person with this survival kit because the churches called to minister not only to persons who were like us but if the truth is been told, we do minister among persons and people groups live in a cultural vastly different from our own. And that fateful day in April 1970, when the spacecraft ‘Apolo13’, founded itself with difficulty, we heard those unforgettable words: "Houston we have a problem". This was not a call to surrender or capitulate. It was summons to creativity, inspiration, passion and perseverance. The words that the crew spacers heard for missing control on earth still resonance with us today: ‘Failure is not an option’. The result of that firm resolve was a successful recovery of the mission. The CQ survival kit embraces those words on behalf of those who are really to respond the called ministry cross-culturally. ‘Failure is not an option’. As a seminar will show, there are four essential tools on the survival kit for improving once cross-culture effectiveness. And these four tools provide the answer to nine questions asked by those who are involved in this challenging ministry. Tool number one is CQ drive. This provides answers to questions: -What’s my motivation? -What’s my level of confidence and motivation for this cross-cultural assignment? -If it’s lucky, what can I do to increase it? Leaders with high CQ drive are motivated to learned and adapt to new universe cultural settings. Their confidence in their adapt of abilities is like enforce the very way they perform in cross cultural situations. Tool number two is CQ Knowledge. This provides answers to the questions: -What do I need to know? -What cultural understanding do I need for this cross cultural assignment? Leaders with high CQ knowledge had a rich and well organized understanding of culture and how that effects the way people think and behave. They possess a repertoire of knowledge in knowing how cultures are alike and different. They understand how cultural shapes behavior. Tool number three is CQ strategy. This provides answers to the questions: - How should I plan? - What do I need to plan in order to do this cross cultural assignment successfully? Leaders with high CQ strategy develop ways to use cultural understanding to develop a plan for new cross cultural situations. These leaders are better able to manager and analyze and adjust their behaviors in different cultural settings. They are conscious of what they need to know about an unfamiliar culture. Tool number four is CQ action. This provides answers to the questions: -What behaviors do I need to adjust? -What behaviors should I adapt for this cross-cultural assignment? Leaders with high CQ action can draw the other three dimensions of CQ to translate their enhancement to motivation, understanding and planning into actions. They possess a broad repertoire of behaviors which they can use depending on the context. The CQ enhancement seminar may just be the search the Europe ministry needs to guaranty some measures of success in your response to God’s call to mission. And as we become more culturally intelligence each of us can become more effective that original world with the good news, and simultaneously, making the world a better place.
