In this Module 2 SLP assignment, you will be measuring your personal cultural values and comparing them to Hofstede’s dimensions of culture for the culture in which you live. Please start by filling out the following self-assessment: CVSCALE: The Five-Dimensional Measure of Personal Cultural Values. 


PO = 14

UN= 35




Note: PO = Power distance, UN = Uncertainty avoidance, CO = Collectivism, MA = Masculinity, and LT = Long-term orientation

After completing the self-assessment above, address the following in your 2 full page paper (excluding title and references pages) and reflect on the following questions:   

1. What did the CVSCALE reveal about your cultural values?  

2. How does this compare to your own country’s values, according to Hofstede’s research?  

3. What other insights about cultural values have you gained from this questionnaire, the readings, and other aspects of the course so far that will be valuable to you in leading across different cultures?



The format for this SLP is less formal than academic papers (e.g., you can use the first person), but you should include headings to organize your thoughts and guide the reader. Cite all sources where you are using information, data, or text from an outside source (including assessments).  The SLP should be thoughtful and insightful, integrating results and learnings from the assessment with other activities in the module and course.  Your SLP paper must be at least 2 full pages (Excluding Title and References Pages) in length.  Your SLP should be edited and error-free.  Be sure that you incorporate 2 scholarly sources found in the Assignment, Materials and Bibliography, Required and Optional reading list, and from the Background page into your written analysis.

Assignment Expectations 

 Here are the requirements—or parameters—of the exercise:    Provides information concerning the date(s) and place where this experience will take place.  

The selected experience should be novel. The intent of this case is to provide a kind of “lab” where you can apply your learning in a new setting. 


 The experience must be with a group or culture that is largely unfamiliar to you. (Phillipino)


  You should not be in a position of authority or dominance vis-à-vis the target group. For example, you should not be a customer in a restaurant, or interacting with individuals who have lower rank than you in an organizational setting. Power can influence behavior, and we want to keep power relationships in check to provide the most meaningful type of interaction.  


The experience should allow for meaningful one-on-one contact with members of the target group. Thus it is recommended that you do not choose an impersonal spectator event such as a large festival, parade, or sporting event.  


The experience must be a minimum of 2 hours in length to provide you with enough material for analysis. 


 The experience must not be illegal or place you at unreasonable physical or psychological risk.
