Cross Cultural Competencies

Abstract

The purpose of this project is to take the five Cross Cultural Competencies from the Globe Study and relate it to the Salvadoran culture in order to understand the relationship between culture and leadership in that specific culture. The Cross Cultural Competencies are: 1) Understand business, political, and cultural environments worldwide; 2) Learn the perspectives, tastes, trends, and technologies of many other cultures; 3) Learn to work simultaneously with people from many cultures; 4) Adapt to living and communicating to other cultures; and 5) Learn to relate to people from other cultures position of equality rather than cultural superiority. Each of these competencies will be used to interpret our experience in El Salvador. The specific evaluation of these competencies will be analyzed through our pre-departure and return thoughts and the change in perspective that took place between these evaluations.
