Sometimes, our upbringing, life experiences and native culture condition us to see and approach life in specific ways. And there is nothing necessarily wrong with this. The challenge comes when this conditioning becomes a blind spot for us and we don't notice. This week, I illustrated this by sharing the culture shock that I experienced with the traditional French kiss and how that can be traced to my blind spot. I also encouraged listeners to look beyond other people's criticisms and judgments as they work hard to surmount the challenges they might be facing in different areas of their Canadian integration experience such as life, family, career or business. Enjoy it!
