About This Week’s Guest
Susan Salzbrenner supports multicultural teams, professional athletes, and leaders of today and tomorrow to navigate diverse cultural contexts.
She is an organizational psychologist, consultant, and trainer, focusing on diversity & inclusion, cultural intelligence, and international talent development.
She’s lived in 6 countries on four continents, has learned (and failed at) many languages, and played a bit of basketball along the way.
Her three tips for becoming more culturally competent follow the acronym FIT
- F: Find new perspectives. Observe stuff that is new to you; actively lookout for new and unfamiliar things
- I: Integrate what you have found into your own live and personality
- T: Trust the process; don’t be impatient. It will happen but might need its time.
