About This Week’s Guest
The CEO of UYD Media and host of the As Told By Nomads podcast.
His three tips to become more culturally competent are:
- Be curious. Explore what is out there. Explore what you don’t know or think you don’t know.
- Travel. By travelling you expand your world like nothing else can. He also suggests to get lost on purpose. This way you will meet and interact with people you otherwise would have never met.
- Be open minded. Tayo thinks it is dangerous to think that your way of thinking and judging is the only and absolute way. There are other ways as well. For sure.
