Drive and Knowledge
This week we’ve been looking at what it means to lead with CQ (cultural intelligence), and why it’s an essential skill for ministry leaders. Today we’ll look at the first two steps:
Step 1: CQ Drive
CQ Drive is your level of interest, drive, and energy to adapt cross-culturally. Do you have the confidence and drive to work through the challenges and conflict that inevitably accompany cross-cultural ministry? Without ample motivation, theres little point in spending time and money on training, travel, and global strategizing.
Step 2: CQ Knowledge
CQ Knowledge is your understanding about culture and its role in shaping how ministry is done. Do you understand the way culture shapes thinking and behavior? While CQ Knowledge remains at the core of many cross-cultural approaches, this element is just one dimension of becoming culturally intelligent and yields little results when used on its own.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the next two steps in the process.
