Recognizing differences: Changing Expectations Multicultural and Ethics
This presentation and paper is about working with a diverse cultural population that involves decision making, managing the cultural factors (and their differences when making those decisions) and ways to incorporate theoretical and practical approaches for successful outcomes. Successful outcomes do not always include what is expected by "normal" societal means; rather, success is determined by the ability of participants to recognize the differences and incorporating appropriate leadership, educational or coaching strategies to assist the individuals to move forward.
The important concepts in this paper include a move away from conformity and an embrace of critical thinking when interacting with diverse populations. Social attributive effects can impinge the reality of expectations. Using interactive games, such as a Decision Game and Survival Mode (based on Targeted Selection theory), participants are able to infuse their own culture while also learning from another. Thus, the strategy lowers expectations and creates an atmosphere that feels more cooperative. Participants are free to observe another cultural approach rather than feel forced into it.
