What the GCI Measures
The GCI was developed to assess in sixteen different areas that are related to adapting to people and places that are significantly different from those that we are accustomed to. This includes differences in perspectives, beliefs, values and practices and can include differences originating in cultures, religions, generations, ethnic groups, and other areas.
The sixteen different competencies are categorised into the following three major groupings:
Perception Management includes several competencies that relate to our ability to learn what we need to know to function in the foreign context. This relates to the accuracy of information we develop as well as the amount of information you learn. It comprises the following competencies: Nonjudgmentalness, Tolerance of Ambiguity, Inquisitiveness, Cosmopolitanism, and Interest Flexibility.
This group of competencies assesses our interest and likelihood of developing and maintaining healthy relationships with those who are different from us. Building positive relationships with others who share different perspectives, beliefs and values is key to having healthy social and work relationships. People also become an important source of information to help you learn what you need to know. Relationship Management comprises these competencies: Relationship Interest, Interpersonal Engagement, Self-Awareness, Emotional Sensitivity, and Social Flexibility.
The third group of competencies relates to managing the stress that you normally experience when living and working in an environment that is different, and with people who do not share your customs and view points. These competencies allow us to maintain an even emotional equilibrium. This, in turn, enables us to effectively utilize your social and mental competencies to learn well and develop the relationships you need to be effective. These competencies include Optimism, Self-Confidence, Self-Identity, Nonstress Tendency, Emotional Resilience, and Stress Management.
