May 18, 2020 Season 3 Episode 10
Bill Millar

Is your 'me' a 'we'? It's an important question! This episode is the first of two looking at key differences in the ways people from different cultures think, feel, and make decisions - how they act and react. Today we focus on that core question: What does your 'me' look like? An individual? Or a group? 

Individualists include most of the people in Europe and North America, but they actually make up a small part of the world's population. Most (over 90%) of the people on the planet are collectivists.This means that, as our country grows, it will be growing largely through collectivists. And if our churches are to grow, they too will likely grow through collectivists - so learning about each other is vitally important.

This episode draws on the work of the late Geert Hofstede, and, once again, the insights of Damber Khadka.
