Going Against Core Principles and Values... Tough

Adapting to a cultural situation is all well and good until an individual is faced with the need of going against their core principles and values and then the trouble starts... Do they do the right thing culturally and betray their own core values, or do they say no and stand up for what they think is the right thing?

CQ Has to Work from Both Ends

The entity as well as the employee have to have CQ. After all, the entity hires expats to assist them meeting its objectives outside its own culture.
If the entity insists on the employee to totally adapt to its own culture, as may be observed in Asia quite often, the employee is a mere adornment to the entity without objectives (provided there were any) being achieved.
