My dear friend from my #LegacyPridePack beamed with delight as I taught her a few things about cultural intelligence. She learned that what she thought were flaws in her behavior are actually cultural norms from her native country of birth. Even though she left her country as a baby, her parents still raised her with their cultural beliefs. Cultural intelligence can teach us so much about why people behave the way they do and what they may find appropriate. Knowing this information can help disarm the judgements we think of about other people. All relationships can benefit from learning the cultures people in our tribe come from.
