    When the Bible is read culturally, it moves us away from seeing it simply as a book of rules to be followed, and toward a book that speaks of God’s interaction with a people in a particular context. Liberate the Bible to be a book about God saving his people from Himself, for Himself. It’s about God’s agenda in the world, amidst different cultures, to advance God’s glory. Through culture today, we continue the story of God, as the people who have been called by the one true God to be God’s agents in the world. Maybe we can once and for all close the back door to our churches. We can make our places of worship, places where all cultures can experience the presence of God!

      The real challenge here is knowing when it’s appropriate to flex our behavior from how we would act in our own cultural context, and when it isn’t. The goal is to be yourself, while at the same time figuring out what behaviors need to change in order to lovingly express who you are and what your intentions and objectives are in establishing the relationship. Ideally, genuine CQ action could only be established by having a proper handle on the other three dimensions of CQ Drive, CQ Knowledge, and CQ Strategy.

        What do I need to plan in order to do this cross-cultural assignment successfully? Leaders with high CQ strategy develop ways to use cultural understanding to develop a plan for new cross-cultural situations. These leaders are better able to monitor, analyze, and adjust their behaviors in different cultural settings. They are conscious of what they need to know about an unfamiliar culture.

          CQ Knowledge refers to one’s level of understanding about culture and culture’s role in shaping the way to do business and interact with others across cultural contexts. Your cognitive CQ or knowledge is based upon the degree to which you understand the idea of culture and how it shapes the way you think and behave. It also includes your overall understanding of the ways that cultures vary from one context to the next.

            Leaders with high CQ drive are motivated to learn and adapt to new and diverse cultural settings. Their confidence in their adaptive abilities is likely to influence the very way they perform in cross-cultural situations. They show interest, confidence, and drive to adapt cross-culturally.

              People from high uncertainty avoidance cultures have little tolerance for the unknown, focus on ways to reduce uncertainty and ambiguity, and create structures to help ensure some measure of predictability. For example, in countries like Britain, Jamaica, and Sweden, countries with low uncertainty avoidance, it is typical to attend meetings of groups where open-ended instructions are given, various ways of doing things are discussed, and loose deadlines are accepted. In contrasting cultures, such a process would create all kinds of dissonance and chaos from a person from a high uncertainty avoidance culture.

                Power distance refers to “how far apart” leaders and followers feel from each other. Countries scoring high in power distance, such as Mexico, India, and Ghana offer a great deal of formal respect to leaders. Titles and status are revered, leaders and followers are unlikely to socialize together, and subordinates are not expected to question their superiors. The US, on the other hand, is a low power distance culture.

                  For individuals from low context cultures, beware of ridiculing a place or people who just “don’t bother” to label their roads or provide explicit instructions. For individuals from high context cultures, be sensitive when hosting low context individuals by providing more explicit instructions than what would ordinarily be needed with a colleague from your own culture.

                    Those coming from an individualistic culture are likely to be motivated through individual incentives; whereas, those from collectivistic culture will be more motivated by seeing their work team succeed.

                      Urgency, taking charge, and making the most out of every opportunity might be a vital part of the American psyche, but most of the people we encounter in cross-cultural interactions may require of us that we enhance our cultural intelligence skills.
