"Cultural Competence" is the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. As leaders, it is important to demonstrate this competency as we work with clients, the community, and one another. Diversity is pervasive, and the workplace provides an especially challenging environment to test one’s skills. The benefit here is by having leaders better understand their own beliefs, they will be better able to address methods to support others and value one another’s similarities and differences. Some issues of diversity are obvious, while others may not be so transparent. Every problem does not have a clear-cut solution but by working under the assumption of positive intent and mutual respect, open communication will help to dissolve fears and concerns that might otherwise become wide gaps of misunderstanding.
1) Understand the meaning of culture, competence, and cultural competence.
2) Discover specific behaviors that lead to stronger relationships.
3) Identify where and when there are opportunities to be more culturally competent at work.
