Cultural awareness is so important. In today’s world you need the skills to operate, work and collaborate in a multicultural, global environment. You need to be culturally self aware, cultural knowledge is needed and a real understanding of the ways in which different cultures approach different situations, work etc. It is now essential to have the ability to communicate effectively in a culturally diverse society.
You will probably have expectations about how people should behave as well as about their motivations. The expectations you have are based on your experiences and what you have learned from the people and organisations around you. When you live and work in an increasingly diverse society colleagues, people you work with, people you meet may challenge your way of thinking, the way you look at things and may only partially comply with how you think they should behave. At times you might find it emotionally and mentally challenging to recognise that the people you are working with or trying to support do not necessarily share your way of thinking and acting.
