showing up with foods they do like, like goat would be a pleasant surprise for them and they would appreciate their employer for their attention to detail. All the items I covered in this paper could improve and reflect a better work environment for this culture by making a few small changes and gestors. 3. Question 3: Relate the culture event to the concepts of the class: · Cognitive (CQ Knowledge): awareness, self-awareness, knowledge Cognitive CQ reflects knowledge of norms, practices, and conventions in different cultures that has been acquired from educational and personal experiences. So, at the beginning of our event/discussion I asked them specifically if there were any major culture differences so that I could avoid them and offend them by doing something that in their culture they find offensive. · Motivation (CQ Drive): perseverance related to cultural interaction Motivational CQ reflects the capability to direct attention and energy toward learning about and functioning in situations characterized by cultural differences. Here with this event I arranged this event not only because it was the assignment but also because I wanted to learn more about the India culture. So even though assigned, my motivation was high due to the fact I wanted to learn about the culture I has chosen. Again, if not for the assignment this meeting would have never taken place so I am glad I took this class and was able to have the interaction. · Metacognitive (CQ Strategy): active control over thinking and using cultural knowledge (e.g., questioning assumptions and/or stereotypes)

DIMENSIONS OF CULTURE 5 Metacognitive CQ refers to an individual’s level of conscious cultural awareness during cross- cultural interactions. During my interaction at my event I was very conscious about our culture differences because the meeting was a planned event where I was there to learn about their culture due to this class. I feel the event would have been different if it was a random meeting and I probably would have acted differently.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
