His three tips to become more culturally competent are:

  1. Meet people from different cultures and take an interest in them. See what you can learn from them first.
  2. Don’t just watch the news and make your judgement from this. Watch different sources of news, watch a YouTube video on the culture, open an English newspaper site from that specific country.
  3. Learn a bit of the language. It shows respect and even if you get it wrong people will appreciate you for it.

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
