Introduction
After taking a CQ (Cultural Intelligence) assessment, I have learned how to identify diverse cultures in an effective way and how to analyze different cultural contexts which help me foster some of the abilities such as leadership and adapt to different cultures in the future.

Specifically, I am willing to serve for young people who are not only in need of help, but also not able to hear the Gospel. I have a strong heart for them. In the light of my vocal, Youth Ministries, I would go anywhere in the world If God calls me to do His work. Given these points, acknowledging how to interact with others is one of the essential abilities to acquire.
Furthermore, once I realized the importance of the concept of Cultural intelligence, I should be able to relate it with my personal results from the test. Based on my CQ Assessment results and these driven from my personal consideration, I am going to analyze and discuss some of my strengths or growth areas where they are the four CQ dimensions.

I only knew about IQ and EQ. Thus, I examined and learned about the new concept, CQ in this course. Not only that, I had a good opportunity to identify strengthens and weaknesses about myself.
In addition, when it comes to the interaction with the youth in my future, I feel more confident at facing any situations after learning in this course. With realizing culturally diverse situations, I learned that everyone has their own personal preferences and its preferences tend to go along with one’s national culture. Specifically, I should act and respond differently depending on the youth group or church I would work together in the future. “When Generation shifted, cultural values influence its culture trend among young adults”, according to the video, Customs of the World; Identity. It demonstrates that acknowledging where the influence of the youth comes from. Also, I would make different adjustments related to my environment. In fact, the way I make a decision or judgment changed so that I can approach the youth appropriately. I should avoid making pre-judgment based on solely my background before having experience with them

    However, I still believe this lesson can be taught to future students/mentees/co-workers; because unlike my other classes, this course provided strategies that I can utilize to develop my leadership skills. Furthermore, the facilitated conversations helped me gain insight about the role of diversity in our world. Concerning this to my future: my first plan is to continue building on my emotional intelligence, so that I can enhance my own life while being able to develop soft skills that I am weak in (i.e. networking). In addition, I hope to one day develop a program for young adults; where I would not only be able to teach about building their emotional intelligence, but also facilitate similar discussions about diversity; with the activities being more focused on using creative methods (i.e.…

    Life in a culturally diverse environment helps us learn new beginnings and background history which helps students understand and respect other points of view. I strongly believe on multiple intelligences and the constructivist theory because every student regardless of intelligence level, culture, and ability are able to construct new understanding and new knowledge. For me education has been everything because it has changed my life forever and giving me the opportunity to create a better life not just for me, but also for my family. Plus, I have learned to understand and connect with others. Most importantly, I have become more open minded now I try things and I am not afraid of failing because it is all about becoming better.…

    As a leader, it is our job to know when that time will be, and not be too arrogant to ask for help. Before NL110 I probably could have named off a few strengths I thought I possessed; but, after taking multiple different strengths and character trait tests, I can now recognize what I am innately good at, and what could use some work. Specifically, after taking the StrengthsFinder test, I now know that my signature themes are: Achiever, Belief, Context, Developer, and Empathy. Using this assessment of my most dominant themes of talent, I can focus on my signature themes, separately and together, to identify my talents, build them into strengths, and in the future, perform with success (“Your Signature Themes”). How I respond to different situations, whether in the classroom, company area, or in peer relationships, will be determined by my strengths.…

    Throughout this course, we learned first our own strengths, then we learned about other cultures, good stewardship and Humble Inquiry. In the future, I will use my strengths to assist me in all aspects of my life journey. I will use them when dealing with multicultural environments, I will apply them to taking care of our earth. When leading people, I will also couple my strengths with Humble Inquiry in order to encourage a positive and productive work space.

    To expand, I’ve always loved kids, and babysitting and loving on children, but I didn’t realize that I would really love to minister to them in the future. My top demonstrated passion was socializing, and then my top felt passions were mentoring, children, and youth. It really just opened my eyes to seeing that my desire is to guide and aid young people. I realize, that these passions can change with time and experiences, but it is still super useful to know that right now these are the groups I feel most strongly for. There were also many parts of this assessment that gave me some things to question and look into further.…
