"Are You a Global Jinzai?"

The term global jinzai continues to be ubiquitous as globalization keeps
us hyper-connected as a human species wanting our societies to grow and
be profitable. This means that communicating across cultures, as well as
within cultures will be essential for those societies that wish to
remain relevant and thriving. So, the questions employers may ask
prospective employees are, "Are you a globally competent human resource
worth our investment? Why should we hire you?" This will be the main
theme of this session. Participants will be given dilemmas/scenarios to
discuss, work through, and analyze. Properly analyzing the scenarios can
provide some insight into one's level of global competence. This is not
an IQ Test or other quantitative assessment. Instead, this Global
Competence Inquiry is a tool that can be used to gain a qualitative
understanding of your personal knowledge regarding global competence.
Think of it like this - "How much do I know about another culture I may
deal with?" "How much do I know about my own culture?" Finally, "How
capable am I of communicating coherent and thoughtful responses to the
first two questions?" By the time this event is finished, participants
should have a base understanding of global competence, how the concept
relates to global jinzai, and resources to gain a deeper understanding.
