One of the key principles of CI is Do-It-Yourself. We at CI do everything we can to enable our members to do as much as possible themselves.
About DIY. One video. Two minutes.
Below is what you find under DIY on CI. If necessary, and only when truly necessary, will I guide members through those steps. Guide in the sense of accompany, direct, support.
You want to address cultural differences. Before you jump in you might want to assess the situation. Via an audit. It tells you which topics on CI are immediately helpful. It tells us at CI about which topics we should create new content.
Step 1 – Learn
CI addresses three fundamental questions: Where do we differ in how we think, therefore work? What influence do the differences have on our collaboration? How can we get them to help instead of hinder collaboration? Learning about cultural differences is the starting point for discussion
Step 2 – Discuss
As colleagues you want to understand each other. You will enter into an on-going discussion about how you think and how you work. And you will continually go deeper and broader. Discussing cultural differences is the bridge from learning to application.
Step 3 – Apply
You as colleagues will then apply that deep understanding to your work. This is about what you do and how you do it. Concretely. Specifically. Day in and day out. Applying your understanding of cultural differences to your work strengthens collaboration.
As your collaboration both deepens and broadens you will continue to experience cultural differences. In order to provide on-going support, we need to know what those topics are. How? You do Audit Steps 2 and 3. We do the research, then upload the new content.
